In the Notre Dame church in the centre of the Bach village today there are some graves of Serbian soldiers who died on the Macedonian Front during the First World War. A popular belief says that the bell of this church is the first to be destined for the Kaimakchalan chapel in 1926. The bell arrived in the village of Bach from Belgrade, and the villagers had decided to keep it for their church. According to the story, the villagers considered themselves close to the royal family of Belgrade because during the war the command of the Serbian army was located in the village. Prince Alexander Karadjordjevic stayed here for a while. Today, the command building is in a state of ruin. It is right next to Notre Dame.

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.
