The National Museum for the Protection of Cultural Monuments and Museums of Bitola is the largest museum institution in the southern part of Macedonia. The museum setting of this institution is divided into two parts: a permanent exhibition and a memorial hall of Mustafa Kemal Atatürk. The museum's permanent exhibition presents in chronological order the life of Bitola and its surroundings from prehistoric times to the present day. In this context, the section covering the Balkans and the First World War is particularly interesting. We find interesting objects from this period and objects from everyday life in Bitola. The town of Bitola was on the Front Line and was bombed and largely destroyed for two years.

The second section of the museum is dedicated to Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, Turkey's modern reformer. He participated in the Battle of Gallipoli during the First World War, a battlefront with close ties to the Macedonian Front.

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.
