Meckin Kamen (according to the Bradt Travel guide an hour´s hike uphill on the road to Bitola from hotel Montana, but we went by car) was the site of one of the battles against the Ottomans. According to the story, the Macedonians were heavily outnumbered and short of ammunition, so they started to throw rocks. The powerful statue shows a fighter throwing a huge rock. The Macedonians come here every August 2nd to celebrate the independence of Macedonia.

Our visit here was part of a 3-day trip from Ohrid-Prilep-Krusevo-Ohrid.
