Just walk through the city center. Between Ploshtad Marshal Tito and the market place you'll find some places whith humpa-stumpa, but there is also a place where folk music was sung.
And the place is not expensive! In not so many places you would find Macedonian strong drinks for 30 denar. You can also eat in that place.

Getting to Resen is not difficult. At least from Ohrid or Bitola it is no problem while not too late.
At bus stations 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. The director (see picture) seems to have left long ago from his office in front of the toilets.
There are lines going to Stenje (recommendable for bathing) and Asamati (near Ezerani)
From Asamati it passes also through Brajcino.
Don't waste your money for taxis.

At least on saturday morning you will find all seasonal fruits and vegetables on the not so small place. There are some sorts hardly to be found in other places. The pepper sort shown on the second picture was not known by a Macedonian living in the north of the country.
The small fruits having similarity to pears are called oskorushi in macedonian and üvez in Turkisch. In Germany they are known as Speierling and added to the applejuice intended to become wine (Äppelwoi).
Ripened in the south (this ones were collected in the mountains near Ohrid) they get a very aromatic taste like tropical fruits.

Those players who were playing in the team "Prespa Resen" had established another club in 1969 and gave the name "Yýldýrým" to their new team which meant thunder in Turkish language. Because of the political pressure in 1980s after Tito's death in Yugoslavia, the name of the team was transformed in "Bratsvo Resen". Bratsvo and Jedinstvo... Two words of Tito literally means "Brotherhood and Unity". So, this was a very good reply of Resen people by calling their team "Bratsvo".
In fact, the name signifies the background of good relations between Makedonian and Turkish people.
When the team was established, Bratsvo Resen had green-white colors. But, just after the successes of Galatasaray in European Cups, the team changed its colors to Red-yellow.
Currently, Bratsvo Resen struggles in Makedonijan third division, but looking forward to go up by keeping their players. Most of the players go to better teams. For example: In the current squad of "Pelister Bitola" there are 4 players from Bratsvo Resen.
I hope they will be successful soon, and I wish luck to Tarkan, Sebaeddin Nasuf (Chairman of the club), and Hamdi Tahir for their great friendly hospitality in Bitola.
