  1. I was in that town and visited the monastery of St. Joakim Osogovski.It’s one of the most beautiful monasteries I’ve ever seen.It has about 14,500 inhabitants.94.5% are Macedonians, 4.5% are Gypsies, 0.60% are Serbs..The rest are Turks, Vlachs, Bosnians.The city could be better organized, but it has a beautiful natural environment.

      • I think that the Macedonians would not agree with you that they exist since 1991.But I agree with you that the country is poor. It’s at the crossroads. Go to NATO or not.I personally think that he should accept an agreement with the Greek and go to Europe ..I hope the referendum for this deal will succeed although there are many who are against it.You are already there … is it better now or before joining NATO and the EU?
