Discovering Krusevo

Krusevo

“Without trying to brag, Krushevo’s citizens like to point out that their town is the highest in the entire Balkans. At a height of 1250 meters, and with only 5300 people occupying it, this is a place where the mind can wander.

Surrounded by impeccable nature and incredible altitude, Krushevo is straight out of a fairy tale – a countryside parallel to that of a private resort, if you will.

When in Krusevo 2017 DAY 1

When in Krusevo

“When in Krusevo” is an outdoor festival that was organized for the first time last year, from the 4th to 6th of August. The organizers have been working towards the second iteration of the festival for this year.

It is an event that involves camping, mountain bike, hiking, paragliding, and musical events held in the nature around Krusevo at night.

We present you a summary of the first day.

Five Impressions after a Week in Krushevo

Krusevo

In my opinion, it’s rare for something to live up to lofty expectations. It’s so normal for our first encounter with some place or person to fall short of the mental images we’ve conjured. In America especially, it’s commonplace to exaggerate good qualities and minimize bad ones so you can make your point. To a certain degree, it’s acceptable and even encouraged to partake in grandiose, verbose rhetoric. Naturally, everyone recognizes that and thus Americans quickly learn how to manage expectations. I mention all of this because it’s rather pertinent to my first impressions of Krushevo.

Women's Day in Krusevo

People of Krusevo are considered very traditional and close to the customs of their predecessors. 8th of March, women's day, is widely celebrated in Krusevo.

Women working in the public enterprises and state institutions have half day free of their working places and go to a local  restaurant. That means the party starts at 12 o'clock and it lasts until 00 in the night.
