VELES. An old town located in the valley of the river Vardar’s banks, mentioned in the 3rd century as Vila Zora (“a city-bridge”), as Kjupurli later, whereas the current name is given by the Slavs in the 7th century, from the Slavic “v les”, which means “in the woods” (due to the dense surrounding forests). It was a home to many Macedonian revivalists, revolutionaries, writers and poets – it is one of the cradles of Macedonian culture, witnessed by countless cultural and historical monuments, monasteries, churches and memorial houses.
The whole Southeastern region covers the basin of Strumica-Radovis and Gevgelija-Valandovo valley. Specifically the mouth area of the Strumica River and the region of the lower stream of the river Vardar.

It is rich in natural beauties attractive for domestic and foreign tourists. These are the Dojran Lake, the Smolare and Kolesino waterfall, Monospitov Blato and numerous natural reserves and caving attractions.
This region is predominantly mountainous and extends along the river of Bregalnica. Indeed, there are plenty of beauties that we can offer to the benevolent traveler: archaeological sites such as Vinica Fortress and Bargala, mineral springs and thermal waters - Istibanja and Kezhovica, adventurous climb up the mountain of Ponikva, a visit to the monasteries and a walk through the Osogovo, Maleshevski or Plachkovitsa Mountain. This is a region remembered by the Kocani rice fields, by the Lesnovski mill caves, by its name “little Swiss”, by the tame mountains and by the most delicious Stip pastramalija-pie.
It is worthwhile visiting this mystical region because of its turbulent geological history; There are rocks nearly one billion years old (in the mountains Kozjak, German and Osogovo) and the remains of the former volcanic activity in this region - amazing formations. The configuration of the terrain in this region is interesting not only because of the natural attractions: the fields, the gorges and mountains, but also for outdoor activities.
