Excellent hike along well marked trails. Not too difficult. We did the longer hike to the Monastery, about 8 kilometers, and it was well worth the trip. Highly recommended.

We climbed Marko’s Towers mid-summer. Due to heat, the climb was laborious but well worth it. The view across Prilep and the valley is incredible. Exploring the old ruins is also amazing! A must for any visitor to the area.

The Markovi Kuli is one pig the most recognizable symbol for the town of Prilep. If you ate newer Prilep is a must thong to do. The view I'd awesome it overlooks the town and the whole Pelagonia region.

The tower by itself is not something special, it's the surrounding rocks. The composition of the rocks can not be found elsewhere in the Balkans, the forms look as some animals (elephant, frog). There is a water that comes out from one of the rocks....More
