Mariovo_Macedonia

The last sunny day of November 2017 was a motive plus for the members of OFF ROAD Macedonia to visit Mariovo region. Mitko Krstevski, Pargovski Jove and Bobo Gruevski headed to this journey early in the morning and after Makovo village they left the regional road toward Chanishte village and the beautiful landscapes of Mariovo region. The few sheep farms on the road and hospitable hosts only complemented the impression of the beautiful panoramas in this part of Macedonia.

Particularly interesting was Chanishte village with its wonderful examples of traditional Macedonian architecture from Mariovo region.
Next stop was the village of Krushevica and the tomb of Tole Pasha, a rebellion from Mariovo region during Turkish rule.

From Krushevica village, the journey continued along the regional road – Prilep – Vitolishte to the village Polchishte and the peak Pandele near this village.

From Pandele peak you can see “The whole Mariovo region as it is on your palm”, and at the very peak there are two churches dedicated to St. Pantelejmon and transmission units of the mobile operator VIP.

The monastery St. Nikola in the village of Manastir with the eponymous church dating back to the XI century is one of the most visited locations in this part of Mariovo, and this was the next location to visit. The hosts in the monastery, hospitable as always, greeted the visitors with tea and coffee, and the beautiful and sunny day was a plus for the great number of other guests who visited the monastery.

In the wonderful Mariovo region somehow the time flies, so there was just enough time for the group to return to Bitola using the regional road from Prilep.
