Thank you Murat,



I took the spelling for 'teke' from my English travel guidebook 'The Bradt Travel Guide - Macedonia'.
In doing so, I presume that the author adopted the word from the...

Thank you Brenda,


Yes, the river is very narrow but too wide to jump over :)

Hi Mariusz,

Thank you Mariusz,


Perhaps the organized walks are a solution.
Do you think they are very difficult walks? There must be a reason why one must be at least 16 years old.
