Bitola — An unknown historic Balkan city
Just 12 km from the borders of Greece, Bitola is the second largest city in North Macedonia. It has managed to maintain its unique 18th and 19th century architecture, with buildings that show its former glory and historic past, when every major European country had a consulate here due to the trading and business that took place in the city. This is the reason, why Bitola was nicknamed the “city of consuls”.
