Serbian military cemetery of Bitola

Coordinates : 41.013676,21.340747

The Serbian military cemetery of Bitola is located in the southern part of Bitola, an extension of the Bukovski Orthodox Cemetery. Here are buried Serbian soldiers who died in the battle for the liberation of Bitola and around Bitola during the First Balkan War. We can also see graves of people who died after the end of the war.

The cemetery has 1,321 metal crosses with digits to digitize graves. It is important to note that all Serbian soldiers rest in a collective ossuary.

The construction of the commemorative ossuary began in 1926, according to the project of the archaeological work Momir Korunovic.

How to get to the cemetery:

A paved road leads to Bukovski Cemetery.

Since its independence in 1991, the name of the country as inscribed in the Macedonian Constitution is "Republic of Macedonia". Nevertheless, and for the purposes of recognition by international organisations and their Member States, the country has agreed to use the designation "former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia". It is under this name that the French Republic has recognised this State. On this website, for convenience of language, "the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia" is referred to as the "Republic of Macedonia" or "Macedonia". This does not represent the position of France or Normandy.
