Exploring the Unique Architecture of Krusevo

Unique Architecture Krusevo

Many houses in Krusevo today still keep an architecture that’s predominantly blue in color. It is believed that the dominance of blue is due to the town’s heritage of Krusevo's fortune seekers in Greece. Furthermore, there are homes that are predominantly yellow, which is believed to be inherited from the fortune seekers in Romania.

The Best Place for Paragliding and Gliding

Mechkin Kamen Start Line

Krusevo is considered to have one of the best site for paragliding in the world. The take-off from Meckin Kamen this year welcomes dozens of international competitions in paragliding and gliding.

The take-off point is positioned over 1,400 meters above sea level, but the real reason why it is considered the best place is its good and safe terrain as well as the fact that the landing points are close to the regional roads that lead to Krusevo.

Krusev Cuisine

The traditional Krushevo cuisine combines Balkan and Mediterranean characteristics, inherited largely from Turkish tastes that prevailed during long centuries of Ottoman rule. Travelers are delighted by the taste of local tomatoes, carrots, lettuces, parsley, onions, and garlic - not to mention the rich flavor and aroma of fresh fruit, such as watermelons, melons, cherries, apricots, grapes, peaches, and others. Most herbs are collected in the local mountains and in the countryside, and are renowned for their taste, scent and healing properties.
