Krusevo Pie

We talk already a lot about history, culture and architecture in Krusevo, so we think that now it’s the perfect time to talk about the traditional food in Krusevo. When you travel around Macedonia you should have in mind one thing: everywhere in this country you can find a really tasty food. The same about Krusevo. Starting from melted cheese in a pot, Krusevska pita (pastry with cheese, spinach or cabbage), Krusevsko grne ( different kind of cheese mixed with mushrooms, ham and egg, baked in a pot).

Discovering Krusevo

Krusevo

Without much in the way of bragging, Krushevo’s citizens would say, and for a fact, that their town is the highest one in the entire Balkans. At an altitude of 1250 meters, and with only 5300 people occupying it, this is the place where the mind goes wondering. Slow and uneasy when it comes to change, the town itself represents a heritage.

Surrounded by impeccable nature, and sensing the altitude even as you breathe in the air, Krushevo is like straight out of a fairytale – a nature parallel to a private resort, if you will.
