‘View of Kratovo’


Kratovo (Macedonian: Кратово) in the northeast of the country is located in a crater of a dead volcano, 600 meters above sea level.

It is one of the oldest cities in the country.
There was already a settlement in Roman times and in the 16th century it was one of the most important mining centers of Ottoman Europe.

Although not on the beaten track by tourists, this little town has a lot of character.
Virtually all of its residents are ethnic Macedonians and Macedonian Orthodox Christians.
