"Tajmiste: Basecamp for hikes near Mavrovo" Tajmiste by Pijlmans

Tajmiste Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 16 photos

The village of Tajmiste lies halfway the road from Gostivar to Kicevo.

Besides some authentic houses, the Church of St Petka and an old watermill, there is not much to do in this serene village.

Tajmiste once was famous for its iron mine, which has been closed now for over a decade. The water from the tap still tastes like iron though! The ruins and the infrastructure of the mine, such as an old railroad, are even now dominating the landscape.

Close to the village is the mountain hut "Tajmiste", a simple but clean place where you can spend the night before or after you go hiking in the region. In case you would like to stay here, you will find the contact information in the tip section.
