  • Monastery of St Petka

    The Monastery of St Petka is from the 16th century.It does not have a monastery function anymore, but was renovated to accommodate visitors. Unfortunately, we were told it was full when we wanted to book it, although it seemed deserted when we got there to visit the church.It must be a wonderful and peaceful experience though to stay here.

When my...

Brajcino Transportation

  • by merak Written Sep 16, 2007

    In other cities, they may explain you vainly from where the bus comes and where it ends, but never know about buses from other bus stations not going to the same.
    But there ARE buses to the Prespa lake! It seems recommendable to plan the trip from monday to friday, because there are more buses. One of the guys selling ticktes speaks English.
    There are lines going to Stenje (recommendable for bathing) and Asamati (near Ezerani)
    From Asamati it passes also through Brajcino- some even to Skopje, if I understood well.
    Don't get raped by paying for taxis all the time.
