Full day tour to the Ethno city of Krushevo, famous by the architecture and Ilinden uprising

More than one century ago, on August 2, 1903, the city of Kruševo became famous around the world for its brave rebellion against the Ottoman Empire, modeled very much on the American and French revolutions. The result of the rebellion was the proclamation of the first Republic on the Balkans. Although it lasted for only 10 days, these events are honored every year on August 2nd (Ilinden – St. Elijah’s Day), as Macedonia’s most important national holiday. A celebration is held on the August 2nd in the vicinity of Mečkin Kamen, where the Pitu Guli died in the final battle against the Turkish Army. During the celebration, the city wears festive attire, and shaggy hand-woven blankets in all colors hang from the balconies and on the windows of all the houses. In the summer, Krushevo hosts the “Ethno City” Festival. At this event, participants are dressed in traditional costumes as Macedonian insurgents and Turkish soldiers, and they are paraded through the town in commemoration of the anniversary of the Ilinden Uprising.

During the visit to Krusevo, we recommend a walk to appreciate the famous old architecture, the Nikola Martinovski Gallery, the Makedonium Monument, The Museum of the Ilinden Uprising, as well as Memorial Museum of Tose Proeski, the late singer and philanthropist, who was famous across Macedonia and the entire Balkans. The tour ends in the late afternoon at the meeting point in Skopje.
