Bitola is the second largest city in the Republic of Macedonia. It is situated in the south-western part of the Republic, in the Valley of Pelagonia in the foothills of Baba Mountain, 13 kilometers from Greek border. Modern-day Bitola is a veritable mix of old and new, where Ottoman constructions and ancient ruins intermingle with modern office buildings.
Exploring Bitola by foot is the easiest way to take in the city’s sights and sounds. But if you want to see the beautifulness around the city by visiting Heraclea Lyncestis and Pelister National Park, renting a car will be the best and easiest way to do that.
