Resen Travel Guide: 16 reviews and 48 photos


The road from Ohrid to Bitola passes through Resen. Although we have driven this road several times, we never stopped to explore Resen.

This time it was different: Resen was our destination for some hours of sightseeing.

Resen is famous for it's apples but i did not have one...

There's not too much to do in Resen.

The most interesting sight is the building Saraj, that looks like a French palace.

Saraj houses a gallery of the Resen Ceramics Colony, a small museum and an exposition of the Macedonian painter Keratza Visulceva.

Close to Resen is the women's Monastery of St Bogorodica near the village Jankovec that is also worth a visit, especially because of the friendly English speaking nun who lives there.

After we visited Resen we drove to the rural village of Maloviste for some more sighseeing and a short hike to the Monastery of St Ana.
