Leaving Skopje in the morning, we drive to the city of Strumica. The first thing we visit in this town are the medieval monastery of “St. Leonthius” – Vodocha and nunnery of “Holy Mother Merciful” – Veljusa. After a short walking city tour and coffee break, we are going to visit Smolare waterfalls, the biggest in Macedonia (39 metres). From there, we drive to the village of Gabrovo, a traditional Macedonian village of the eastern part of the country. The host farmers will be waiting for us there, willing to take us around the Strumica plain, one of the most important plains in the country well-known of peppers production. We will pick up some fruits and vegetables from the fields and start cooking together with the hosts – fresh salads, fresh-baked bread and meat, home-made wine and natural fruit juices will be on our menu for the home-hosted lunch. Free time to explore the area on own. Later, drive back to Skopje.
