The first plenary session of ASNOM (The Anti-Fascist Assembly for the People's Liberation of Macedonia) was held on the symbolic date of August 2 1944 (Ilinden uprising day) in the Monastery of Prohor Pcinjski.
The most important assembly decisions were proclaiming Macedonia as a nation-state of ethnic Macedonians, and proclamation of the Macedonian language as the official language of the Macedonian state.
The monastery is now in Serbia, but before Macedonia became independent in 1991, the monastery was on Macedonian territory. Due to continuous refusals by the Serbian Orthodox Church to allow Macedonian delegations to celebrate this holiday in the monastery, a new national commemorative for ASNOM was built in the village Pelince in 2004.
On the road from Kumanovo to Kriva Palanka, take the turnoff to Prohor Pcinjski. The memorial center is just before the border with Serbia.
About 500 meters into Serbia, you can visit the Monastery of Prohor Pcinjski as well!
