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.
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.
On Friday (06.27.2018) a Paragliding and Adventure Tourism Info Center will be opened in Krusevo that will be on the service for the visitors.
The Center is already working and beside information you can rent a bike.
The opening will start at 1 p.m. in the presence of the Mayor of Krusevo Mr. Tome Hristoski, the DIrector of the Support and Promotion of Tourism Agency Mr. Ljupco Janevskiand representatives form the Embassy of Switzerland.
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.
The tournament is organized by the local paragliding club and this year it is its second consecutive organisation.
It starts right after the Ozon Open (22.07-28.07.2018) on the 29th of July, and closes on the 4th of August.
The traditional Krushevo cuisine combines Balkan and Mediterranean characteristics, inherited largely from Turkish tastes that prevailed during long centuries of Ottoman rule. The travelers are delighted with the taste of local tomatoes, carrots, lettuces, parsley, onions, an garlic, and not to mention the rich flavor and aroma of fresh fruit, such as watermelons, melons, cherries, apricots, grapes, peaches, and others. Most herbs are collected in the local mountains and in the countryside, and these herbs are renowned for their taste, have scent and healing properties.
Situated on the historical Gumenje the monument Ilinden was discovered on the 2nd of August 1974 and today is visited by hundreds and thousands of visitors from Macedonia, and Europe.
The monument is a symbol of the fight and disobedience of the Macedonian people, and the interior symbolically represents the struggle of the Macedonian people for an independent country. Also, the surrounding of the monument is created to memorize the lost life of many soldiers.
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).
