Full description
After pick up from your accommodation in Skopje, you will begin your tour with a drive to Kratovo, where your local guide will be waiting for you. Your guide will begin to show you the city in his own style, which is bound to be very different from others. You will also have the opportunity to taste plenty of local home-style foods, some of which you will even help prepare. Following this, you will begin a city sightseeing tour where you will visit historical sites such as the church of St. Jovan Pretecha (18th century), the church of St. Nikola Chudotvorec (16th-18th century), the Clock Tower (14th century) the Simkjeva Tower (14th century), the Bazaar Bridge and the Argulichki Bridge. After your city tour visit, you will visit Kuklica, also known as the "Valley of Stone Dolls". According to local lore, a man was once struggling to choose between two women. Not able to make up his mind, he figured he would marry both on the same day and not tell the other. Unluckily for him, during his morning wedding, the second wife came to check out the scene and was horrified upon having to watch her husband’s double-crossing nuptials. In a rage, she cursed the whole wedding party and they turned to stone, where they stood forever and created Kuklica. After finishing your tour, you will return to Skopje.
