Stone town of Kuklica

Kuklica is located 8 km northwest of Kratovo. The stone formations are situated on the right bank of the Kriva River valley. The area has an altitude of 415-420 m and extends over an area of 0.3 square km.

There are three main legends surrounding the formation of the strange stone pillars in Kuklica. The most famous legend is that of a man who could not decide which of two women he should marry. So, the man planned to marry each woman on the same day at different times. When the first wedding was in progress, the second woman to marry the man went to see who was getting married on the same day as she. When she saw her future husband marrying another woman, she cursed all in attendance at the wedding and turned them into stone.

There is another variation of the first legend to the story. That it was a woman that was in love with a man who already loved another woman. They planned to marry and on their wedding day, the brokenhearted woman cursed everyone and turned them into stone.

Another popular legend is that there was once a forest in the area, but due to battles it was burned down. Then, the area became a wasteland. The temperatures were very low and when the army passed through the wasteland, all of the soldiers turned into rocks.

Kokino

North Macedonia

Business Description:

Kokino is a Bronze Age archaeological site in the Republic of North Macedonia, approximately 30 km from the town of Kumanovo, and about 6 km from the Serbian border, in the Staro Nagoričane municipality. It is situated between about 1010 and 1030 m above sea level on the Tatićev Kamen summit and covers an area of about 90 by 50 meters, overlooking the eponymous hamlet of Kokino.

It was discovered by archeologist Jovica Stankovski, director of the national museum in Kumanovo, in 2001. In 2002, Stankovski together with Gorje Cenev (who is the head of a planetarium at a Youth Cultural Center in Skopje) published the claim that the site contains a “megalithic observatory and sacred site” (мегалитска опсерваторија и светилиште).

The wider Kokino archaeological site covers about 30 hectares. The oldest archaeological finds date from about the 19th century BC, corresponding to the early European Bronze Age. It shows signs of occupation for the period from the 19th to the 7th centuries BC. Finds from the Middle Bronze Age (c. 16th to 14th centuries BC) are the most numerous (mainly ceramic vessels, stone-mills, a few molds, and a pendant). An agglomeration from the Iron Age was discovered in 2009. The remains of vessels filled with offerings were found deposited in cracks in the rocks, which gave rise to the interpretation of the site as a “holy mountain”.

The Kokino “megalithic observatory” should be distinguished from the wider Kokino archaeological site. The claimed archaeoastronomical site has a combined area of about 5000 square meters and consists of two platforms with an elevation difference of 19 meters. The claim of the site representing an astronomical observatory was made by Stankovski and by Gjore Cenev in 2002. According to this interpretation, the site includes special stone markers used to track the movement of the Sun and Moon on the eastern horizon. The observatory used the method of stationary observation, marking positions of the Sun at the winter and summer solstice, as well as the equinox. Four stone seats or “thrones” are placed in a row on the lower platform. According to Cenev, a stone block with a marking on the upper platform marks the direction of sunrise on summer solstice when viewed from one of the seats. Kokino was briefly mentioned in a poster made by NASA’s “Sun-Earth Connection Education Forum” in 2005,  although in a recent survey of ancient “observatories”, the Kokino site was described as “a particularly problematic case”.

The Cultural Heritage Protection Office of Macedonia’s Ministry of Culture declared the site a “property under temporary protection” on 13 November 2008 (Decision nr. 08-1935/6). In 2009, Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kancheska-Milevska declared Kokino “one of the priorities of the Ministry of Culture’s 2009 programme”. In 2009, the Republic of Macedonia also suggested the site be inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage Site list.  After it’s formal nomination in 2011 for inclusion on the World Heritage List, the Kokino site’s nomination dossier was rejected because the number of possible observing points and markers could indicate an astronomical alignment by chance.

Struga – City of Poetry

Struga is a town and popular tourist destination situated in the south-western region of the Republic of Macedonia, lying on the shore of Lake Ohrid. Once known as “Enchalon” -Eel, Struga has a population of approximetly 15 000 inhabitants. It has been known since the time of the Ilirs, and many old writers of traveling guides have noted that Struga was a very vivid city, with developed trade, great markets and the houses of the wealthy citizens were always beautiful and decorative. That is why the well-known saying: “There is no other place like Struga” exists since then. Except the  Ohrid lake in Struga there is a river called Crn Drim which flows gently through the town, as it does not want to disturb the visitors walking along its banks, thrilled by its crystal clear waters. In the evening when many lights are turned on, the river has even a better view by the reflection of light from its waters.

On its way to the Adriatic Sea the Drim forms two man made lakes Globochitsa and Shpilye which are surrounded by magnificent landscapes.Much of the town’s meager income is through internal tourism. Struga’s location on Lake Ohrid makes it a slightly quieter and more peaceful experience than the more bustling Ohrid. When visiting this quiet town, there are a few other places that show the beauty and culture, like the clay chamber pots at the house of the Miladinovci Brothers, the old Struga bazaar, the century old churches and mosques.

Before the evenings you can enjoy on 3 kinds of beaches called Male beach ,Female beach and the most beautiful called Galeb (Gull), located just before the estuary of the river Crn Drim (Black Drim). Every August at the Poetry Bridge are held the Struga Poetry Evenings visited by poets, writers and artists from all around the world.Every summer in the culture center of Struga – summer open scene, it is organized cinemania and alter music festival (‘Come, Row’) including rock, metal, electro, hip hop, r’n b and many more groups from around the country. At night you can walk by the lake, by the river, or go at the most popular discos like Oaza,Biser,Tullamur beach.There’s also very beautiful bars and pubs located by the lake, by the river and in the center of Struga such as Grifon, Tullamore Dew, Plivalishte, Ženska Plaža Cinema, Admiral, Album, Street, Sweet Cafe, Aquarius and many others.

Kastrioti’s Museum

Sinë, Peshkopi, Diber, Albania

Business Description:

“Kastrioti Museum”, in Sina village of Dibra, is located only 20 kilometers from the town of Peshkopi. In 1985 this area was defined by historians as the center of the Kastrioti Principality and the birthplace of the Albanian national hero Gjergj Kastriot Skanderbeg. For this purpose in the village of Sinë e Poshtme was built this year the museum.
The existence of “Skanderbeg Cape”, “Guri i Gjin”, and finding a stone inscription, during excavations for plita, led to the construction of the museum, which has consisted of a series of objects of collected fighters over the years.
During the 1990s this museum was plundered and it seems that this is not over yet. In May 2011, it was possible to reconstruct the museum after it was announced that it would arrive from Italy Giorgo Marino Scanderbeg, and fortunately the works were closed the previous day.
Already the “Kastrioti Museum” is out of order and almost empty inside.
Along with the devastating road, which greatly impedes the arrival of visitors, it is regrettable that the “loss” of objects is also noted.
One resident of the area says: “The municipality should give 50 thousand lek (old) for the person who will maintain and play the role of the gangster, but they do not give me any money, they left me as a duty” .
So is the fate of our monuments written, a disgusting fate among robberies and robberies.

Coral Spire extends over 40 kilometers in the north-south direction between the lower part of Drini i Zi and its contributor Radika. It is located around the border triangle of Albania, Macedonia and Kosovo, to the southwest of the Shari Mountains. Korab is a very rugged mountain massif and consists mainly of Paleozoic slopes and limestone with block structures as well as some heavily plastered rocks of Permian Triasic. On the west side, the mountain knocks on the rock walls. The northern side consists of rugged rocks. A type of double roof of Korabi I and II, which reaches the height of 2756 m, which is almost the same height, is about 150 meters northwest of Korab peak within Albanian territory. In the same ridge are the other two peaks reaching over 2700m, Radulova’s Shulani and Korabi III. The southeast, having a few rocky areas, share some meadows, which are accessed very simply, and occasionally by shepherds with their sheep’s flocks. Apart from the Korab peak, there are some more, almost at the same level of equal height. In the north of the twin peaks there are a number of other unnamed, with rocky towers of almost equal height. The peak lies about two kilometers southwest, (the tip of Korab / Korapska Mala Vrata) reaches 2727m. A few hundred meters south is another top of Morava’s top, which is 2718 meters. with just a few feet lower. the peaks are occasionally eroded by radial tectonics in the form of blocks at the end of the Radika Valley by the side of the Republic of Macedonia. These blocks occasionally have steep slopes reaching up to 500 m (1,640 ft). At its highest part, above 2000 m (6562 ft), the climate is alpine and includes some elements of alpine flora. Mali Korab is home to spectacular waterfalls in the upper valley of Përroi i Dejta (mk: Dlaboka reka). During spring time, waterfalls reach a height of over 130 meters, which makes it the highest in Macedonia. The state border interrupts the highest peak of Korabi big. The accession of the Republic of Macedonia includes the entry of the Macedonian-Albanian border area, for which a special permit from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Macedonia is needed, even though people regularly violate the law in Korab without it.
