Village of Gradeshnica (Mariovo) - Municipality of Novaci

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.

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.
