Welcome to Mavrovo National Park

One of Macedonia's most important – and accessible – monasteries, Sveti Jovan Bigorski, is here, as are the atmospheric villages of Galičnik and Janče, separated by a mountain ridge. The Galičnik traditional village wedding is one of the country's most popular and quirky summer festivals. Mavrovo is also home to some of Macedonia’s most revered cheese makers.

Driving in the park is extremely scenic, but a word of caution: car GPS doesn't work well here and signposting is poor.
