After 94 years...

Veli Bey, who was an Ottoman army officer in Bitola had to leave here in 1912 when Balkan Wars started. He could never turn back to his homeland and died in Bolu in Turkey 1951.

After 94 years I am the first one from the family to visit homeland of Veli Bey.

It was one of my most excited travels...

    Hi Ozgür, I liked your Bitola page. Wish I had known that there is a Turkish cemetery before I got there. Nice tips...
