To the Isar fortress from the town it can be be approach from several directions. Although there is easy path to the stairs, I was choose a little more complicated way. Through poorly blazed trails and wild grass with a little effort I climbed to the fortress.
The hill offer a breath-taking view at town and river Bregalnica. The pictures speak more then words.
Shtip is great place to spend your day. From the arheological site Isar, to the Town Museum to the typical Macedonian town houses.
Few of them are still standing in Shtip. The youngest one is 177 yrs old.
Unfortunatly they are not preserved by the State as is done in Ohrid, and slowely falling in disrepare.
The owners try to upkeep them, but conservation is expencive and laborus task consuming. Lots of time & money is needed, wich your avarage Macedonian don't have much, specilay the latter one.
This house, is on the entrance of Shtip comming on the road from Kavadraci.
I had chat with the family wich lives there and this house is build in 1792, by a wealty sheep & grain merchant.Continiously his desendants live on the property.
