Infatuated with Pelister

Legend has it that Pelister was a handsome young guy whom two sisters fell in love with. Their mother, angry with their affair, chased them to the mountains and cursed them – to remain close but still, not to be able to see each other. The sisters wandered through the mountains.

CAREVI KULI – STRUMICA

The locality is located in the South-Eastern part of R.N. Macedonia, on the hill that rises south of the city of Strumica, with an average altitude of 450 m. The plateau extends 210 m in the East-West direction and about 80 m in the North-South direction. From the North-West and South-East sides of the hill, steep slopes descend to the streams Koritniche and St. Elijah. In the past, the plateau had a proper elongated oval shape. Over the last several centuries, two or three landslides, that have cut the plateau, have been created on the East, North, and North-West sides. The last major devastations were probably due to the earthquake that struck the Valandovo region in 1931.
