River Pena is a living example of a dumping site and even old cars, tyres etc. can be found in the river bed. The waste waters from the plants flow into the river, and as a result the river is completely dead. What a shame...
I took this info from a website, just a small description of the river used in a militar action strategy:
"...Albanian terrorists have been noticed coming by trucks and stopping at the bridge of the river Pena, where they nested and started shooting. Their plan is obviously to divide the town and take the river as a border..."
ok, this mountains seem to be a little bit dangerous right when I was there. They still have military activity and the police didn't let me go there to go visit a monastery. I hope next time i'll be able to visit it.
For what I know, those houses were the houses where the first attacks from the Albanian Extremist came from. They were bombed after. You can see a milita truck going up the road.
this building was one of the ones bombed during the past attacks of the Albanian rebels.
you can also see some bullet holes on the walls. I think this kind of building can represent public danger.
First buildings to attack by rebels
are the ones on top of the hill. they were also destroyed after with a rsponse attack by the macedonian army.
