To lousat: Lots of tourists?

Thank you Luciano,


Since 2010 tourism in North Macedonia has been increasing.
In 2019 there were around 1,03 million arrivals.

However, in many places and in Bitola I often had the feeling...

To emka: Traditional customs ...

Thank you Malgo,


Indeed strange that you've visited Heraclea and not been in Bitola (2 km away from each other).

Only a part of town looks like Turkey and I mainly mean the buildings. Other...

Hello Beverley,


My question may indeed have seemed odd.
I had already read that Giggleswick was very small, but I thought of the smallest town in Belgium, Durbuy, which has a center with only...

To Royaldevon: Thank you

Thank you Beverley,


Of course I'm not offended.
I'm glad you took the time to discuss my photo. Criticism also includes the aspects that explain why something is not good or beautiful.

To jhm: Je advies

Wel bedankt John,


Begrijp ik het goed dat je aanraadt om het contrast naar beneden te halen?
Het advies van Mariusz is net om meer contrast toe te voegen.

Hoe dan ook, ik vond het een heel...

To mkamionka: Change of religion

Thank you Mariusz,


The switch to Islam often happened for economic reasons, but also because young boys were conscripted into the Ottoman army.
In the first centuries of Ottoman rule, a...

To jhm: Aardbeving

Wel bedankt John,


In 1963 was ik nog een kind.
Uiteraard heb ik vaak over die aardbeving gehoord maar dan vooral veel later, zoals toen ik in 1977 voor het eerst naar JoegoslaviŽ ging. Niet...

To holmertz: The most beautiful street

Thank you Gert,


On the map of Bitola, this street seems really narrow, an alley. I was surprised it was so wide.
It was indeed the most beautiful street in Bitola, but the city was also...

To jmdias: Christianity in Rome

Thank you Jorge,


Which symbols do you mean?

Not impossible. In 313 AD, the Emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan, which accepted Christianity.
10 years later, it had become the...

To mkamionka: A correct amount

Thank you Mariusz,



I had already paid the man in red the amount my guide suggested as a tip for both.
Both 'sadhus' clearly belonged together.

I refused the extra that the man dressed in...

Hi Gert,


I did not see the 'sadhu' give money to my guide.
But of course such a thing would only happen later. They still had enough opportunity not to have to do this while the tourist was...

To holmertz: Real and fake?

Thank you Gert,


I'm afraid I don't understand your first sentence.
I guess you meant that a fake sadhu will give a commission (a reward) to my guide to have brought me there but not a real...

To mkamionka: Damaged?

Thank you Mariusz,


Damaged? If I remember well, this was a wall on the back or perhaps already a wall of the adjacent bus station.
Anyway, the train station, the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus,...

To ChrisJ: Near Bitola

Thank you Chris,


You have been to Bitola.
You don't need a bus here.
The archaeological site of Heraclea is on walking distance from the centre of Bitola.

Bitola is the city that has been close to Heraclea since the end of the sixth century.
But in Heraclea's heyday when there were theatrical performances and gladiator fights, I...

Hello everyone,


I think the square looked quite different during my 1996 visit. The buildings were, of course, identical.

But the square itself looks different, more beautiful, in Gert and...
