A Riding Expedition is a journey on horseback, which may entail a few hardships but reward you with an experience to remember and scenery which you might otherwise not have the opportunity to see.
Holiday on a horseback offers a firsthand experience of the riches of Mavrovo National Park. This particular holiday is a great way to discover the beautiful countryside far from the clutter of the urban life. Visit places with beautiful scenery, mighty mountains, crystal clear rivers and waterfalls, smooth and vast green highlands. Lodging in old villages, enjoy the taste of domestic food products offered in the local sheepfolds, sometimes by the fire or sometimes simply in the nature, sitting on a rock in the middle of a pasture taking pleasure in the splendors of life and nature.
Definitely the right choise whatt to do in Galicnik!!!!
The Church of Sveti Petar and Pavle (St Peter and Paul) is a beautiful and abundantly decorated church in the village Galicnik.
It plays a central role in the Galicnik Wedding, which takes place every 12th of July.
When attending the Galicnik Wedding it was difficult to select a location as you couldn't see it all from one spot. We missed a lot of the action, but we were fortunate in that we could see the dancing fairly well.
The terrace of hotel Neda offers an exceptionally good view over Galicnik.
However, the food we had in the hotel was terrible, so be warned...
Much of it has been restored, but much remains to be done. Donations are very welcome as construction is still under way.
My Grandfather was baptised here.
You can see the stairway to the church. When we walked by we were able to look in, but our group decided to move further down to get a better view of the whole area.
You can see the musicians playing to the audience:) At some distance behind them are the stairs to the church.
I was fortunate to get this close before the police shooed me up to the ampitheatre. You can see the traditional costumes worn for this event.
Be sure to position yourself as best as you can to see the dancers and musicians. The amplification system isn't all that great -- so seeing is very important.
The drum is called a 'tapan'.
The "teshkoto" or "the difficult one" - an excrutiatingly slow dance representing the course of Macedonian history. VERY difficult to perform.
