The restaurant was built next to it, that is, with the old maple tree, which they say is over 400 years old, I will not say anything, you’re going to talk about unreal flavors of lamb and grilled.
DAY 4 – Mrzenci, Giannitsa, Kajmakčalan, Bitola – 316 km
Suggest that we start around 09:00, after breakfast.
Today I choose to go around a place that I believe everyone will be happy – it is a mountain Kajmakčalan, of which Wikipedia says the following: Kajmakčalan is the highest peak of the mountain Nidže to 2,521 m above sea level, on the border of the Republic of Macedonia to Greece (Mariovo) . It is composed of gneiss and granite, and is known as the scene of the fiercest battles on the Salonika front during World War I in 1918. On it was erected a memorial chapel where it is and hour, in which (was)  buried heart doctor Archibald Reiss. Next to the church stands an ossuary containing the remains of fallen soldiers. The delegation of the Republic of Serbia for the first time visited Kajmakčalan 2014.
The heart is missing from the Bulgarian occupation of the territory of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia in World War II. The path leads through Greece over the city Gianitza, Edessa… little town Niki border crossing and again, we’re going to Macedonia in the direction of Bitola, turn right on route no. 2338 which go some 30.8 km. Turn right on the road that bears the name “Dr. Rice “, a later time he got the name” Kajmakčalan “and should go around 25.7 km to the memorial chapel (ossuary). A lightweight off-road, acceptable for any motorcycle.
After touring and take a photos we descend the same road to the main road that will take us to the town of Bitola, where we will sleep.
Hotel SumskiFeneri Hotel – 3 stars
S.Trnovo, 7000 Bitola, Macédoine
Hotel coordinates – 41 ° 02’36.7 “N 21 ° 15’18.9” E
5th DAY – Bitola, Sv.Naum, Tirana, Shkodra, Rijeka Crnojevića – 408 km
We start after breakfast at 08:00.
Through Albania, we will drive through the towns of Pogradec, Elbasan, Tirana… direction towards Shkodra, Shkodra after going to the border crossing “Božaj”where we enter the Montenegro.
Lunch in Albania bay PATOK, quality fish and wine at a very low price.
Before we enter Albania we will pass near Lake Prespa, and by the road of second order (about 33 km) we come to the coast of Lake Ohrid, very close to the monastery of SvetiNaum. The border with Albania is next to the monastery.
We will change some euros in local currency. 1 euro = 140 lek (current ratio of foreign currencies at 01/16/2016).
This lunch (for 4 persons) with images in Patok, with all Tipped costs 45 euros.
Daughter arrives with a huge platter: gilthead identify the other we look like bream, the third is John Doe fish, seafood no sweat; squid, shrimp, cuttlefish, everything. Can i mixed salad, huge, with goat cheese. Can corn cake topped with cream cheese resembling, all sprinkled tomatoes. Can the eggplant with parsley in olive oil. Can chillies, six pieces. Can black, wine; we want the most expensive of the three euro. Can a few dozen bottles of mineral water; Boro wants and coca-cola can. Can fruit at the end: all with one voice – it can.
This looks interesting, I suggest you have lunch in the lagoon to the Adriatic coast near the town of PATOK.
The town of Patok is about 185 km from our entry into Albania, taking into consideration that from Bitola to St. Naum had about 83 km, we need a little stronger breakfast in Bitola, and I think we can endure these 268 kilometers. If we start in the morning after breakfast at 08:00 and if we have an average of 60 km/h … which is not so difficult, it is about 6 hours drive + 2 hours of standing (SvetiNaum and other breaks, fuel and so on…) arrive for lunch around 16:00. Believes this suggests that we should start no later than 07: 00 and then it all fits… a deal, right?
After lunch, we left with a little less than 150 km to the city in Montenegro, where we sleep, we’ll go through Skadar (short coffee break), border crossing Božaj and through Podgorica to Rijeka Crnojevića where we sleep.
I think we will very quickly fall asleep after a hard day…

Start from Rijeka Crnojevića in the morning around 8:00.

In Visegrad, visit the “Andric City” and continue to Serbia – to “Drvengrad” where we will spend the night.
Day 7 – Drvengrad, Rogačica, Grazing Ravan, Valjevo, Sabac, motel “Uzelac” Ruma – 208 km
Rested After breakfast depart around 08:00.
