What To Do: A Walk Inside the Nature of Krusevo

Monument Ilinden

One of the best experience that you can get from Krusevo is a walk inside the undiscovered nature.

In the summer there is an event organized by Finance Think and the local organization Krusevska zena walking through the forest and fields and collecting different types of herbage.

Beside the walk you will have an insight in the nutritional values of the natural плантс. You get to learn something about the natural healers and collect "Majcina dusica" tea.

So, if you are not a fan of the adrenaline sports then this is what you want to do this summer in Krusevo. 

Krusevo is Ready for the Paragliding and Gliding Competitions, Summer 2018

Paragliding Summer 2018

The Municipality of Krusevo will work together with the Macedonian Youth and Sport Agency and the Aeronautical Federation of Macedonia on promotion of the European Gliding Championship that starts on the 8th of July and lasts until the 21st.

In the period that follows there will be several press conferences, TV advertisements and Facebook campaigns devoted exclusively to the European Gliding Championship.

For the local self-government the support from the Federation and the Agency is valuable for hosting the gliding event.

The Best Place for Paragliding and Gliding

Mechkin Kamen Start Line

Krusevo is considered to have one of the best site for paragliding in the world. The take-off from Meckin Kamen this year welcomes dozens international competitions in paragliding and gliding.

The take-off point is positioned on over 1 400 meters above sea level but the reason why it is considered the best place for these sports is its good and safe terrain and the landing points are close to the regional roads that lead to Krusevo.

Winter Night Landscapes

Winter Night in Krusevo

This year winter in Krusevo came pretty late when compared to previous years and the winter calendar. We are almost half through February and the first snow (about 30 cm) has just come.

However, even though it is probably late for large numbers of visitors to come to Krusevo the snow provided both the citizens and the present tourists with beautiful landscapes and time to ski.

Discovering 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.
