Bitola is an administrative, cultural, industrial, commercial, and educational centre. It is located in the southern part of the Pelagonia valley, surrounded by the Baba and Nidže mountains. It is an important junction connecting the south of the Adriatic Sea with the Aegean Sea and Central Europe. Bitola is a grand old town that still bears the marks of its turn-of-the-century importance as a center for diplomacy, since it has the most European atmosphere. It was a seat of consuls in the 19th century and with them they brought the European culture and influenced the local aristocracy, who started living in European fashion and building their houses in mixed neo-classical styles. Bitola holds many secrets from the past and is characterized by many historical buildings, so you’ll love strolling through the streets marveling at the beautiful buildings just to see Ottoman architecture and 19th century romantic architecture. There are many things to do in Bitola such as visiting the churches and mosques, the Old Bazaar for a bit of shopping, Heraclea Lyncestis and Bitola’s National Theater for an evening out in the city. Pelister is the oldest national park in Republic of Macedonia and is filled with exquisite flora and fauna. Among flora elements, the presence of the FIVE-needle Pine Molica is especially significant. Pinus peuce is a unique species of tertiary age being present on only a few mountains in the Balkan Peninsula. Characteristic fact for this molika tree is that it can live approx 200 – 300 years. Pelister is also known for its two mountain lakes, which are called Pelister's Eyes.
