Full day tour to Krushevo


Krushevo is situated at an altitude of 1. 350m, it is a small mountain city, but very unique and important for the history of Macedonia. Here in the past was organized the first big uprising against the Ottoman Empire and also was created the first "Krushevo Republic" that unfortunately last only for 10 days. Krushevo is home of different museums, monuments, traditional architecture, good food, ski slopes. In Krushevo was born also one of the most famous singers in the Balkans, Toshe Proeski, who unfortunately lost his life in a car accident when he was only 26 years old. Here was also born Nikola Martinovski, he is considered the founder of Contemporary Macedonian art.
Krushevo is still far from the mass tourism and this is the reason why you should visit this place. In only one day you can explore this city, and also enjoying the mountain and the nature around. This city is very unique especially during winter time when from the top of the hill you can enjoy the snow and the white rooftops of the houses.
