First World War Trail

Walking in Pelister National Park

This gentle trail starting at the national park's headquarters meanders uphill through Pelister's cool alpine forests, and is accompanied by engaging information boards (in English) exploring this area's experiences during WWI. The trail is easy enough to follow without a map or GPS.

During WWI, the Macedonian Front was stationed in and around Bitola and tasked with fighting off Bulgarian and German forces. Villages in the shadow of Pelister were dragged into the turmoil and suffered greatly.
