Coordinates : 41.083327, 21.762680
The village of Gradeshnica is located at an altitude of 800 m. The village is 52 km from the town of Bitola. During the First World War, the Macedonian Front line crossed the village. The breakthrough of the front line took place near the village, in the area called Dobro Pole. Today, we find here vestiges and traces of this period.
At the entrance to the village there is the St. Dimitri's church dating from the 14th century. Among other things, it is interesting to note that a grenade fell into this church during the First World War, which fortunately did not explode. Today, inside the church, we can clearly see where it fell.
An Ethno Museum has been built in the centre of the village, which gathers objects from everyday life and war.
