Ask yourself whether you can imagine living in a small community. Maybe a population of 75,000 doesn’t seem that small to you, but everyone here knows everyone else. And everyone knows everything. Be prepared to receive many opinions and advice you never even knew you needed. We have one beautiful street called Shirok Sokak. It is our “red carpet”. You can dress up and will surely be noticed and properly critiqued. We also have our own ancient archeological site Heraclea Lyncestis where you can visit our beautiful mosaics.

Bitola is a really beautiful city, everyone loves it! It is filled with tons of cafés and fashionable people who are full of remarkable qualities. This city has been the city of key development of different cultures since the days of the Ottoman Empire, where it served an honourable place, being “a bridge of networks and friendships” among various people who, at the time, were facing serious social differences. However, everyone here has strived for the better and will continue doing so until the end of time. We also have Heraclea Lyncestis, an old city that dates from the eras of Philip II and therefore, one of his capital cities. It is a really fascinating historic reminder of the early ages of society. Bitola is surrounded by a breathtakingly beautiful natural environment, and memorable places to go, and is warmly welcoming everyone who wishes to visit it!
