This morning we set off to explore the southern part of the Mavrovo National Park. Driving in the canyons of the rivers Crn Drim and Radika, we take a stop at St. John the Baptist of Bigorski Monastery, which is widely renowned as the most spiritual monastery in Macedonia. This 19th-century structure, erected upon both the ruins of an 11th-century church and the slopes of Mountain Bistra, is home to a small silver coffin allegedly containing the remains of St John himself. Before we have our lunch, hidden in the mountain, we must see the waterfalls Duf, to listen to the sounds of nature and to relax our senses. Continue on to the village of Janche, sitting in the canyon that guides the Radika River. The village is known as one of the oldest in the region – its quaint houses line the hillside. After a quick walk around this village, a hands-on cooking class with the local women will teach the skills required to make local pastries, considered to be a specialty of this region. Ayvar, mushroom stalks, number of different salads, grilled beef chops and dessert will follow. After lunch, drive back to Ohrid.
