Traces of the Vanished Town
As Macedonia has a rich history with many dramatic events such as wars, conquests, and natural disasters, there are many places which used to be famous and then almost disappeared from the national cultural map. Such are Velika and Demvol in the west, and Morodvis, Malesevo and Pijanec in the east. Zletovo, Lukovica and Valandovo used to be much bigger than they are today. Pijanec is a big area in the north-eastern part of Macedonia, nestled between the Osogovo and Malesevo Mountains and the Rivers Bregalnica and Elesnica near the road to Sofia.
