Bitola - irok Sokak, pedestrian street


According to some sources Bitola is the second largest city in North Macedonia with a population of about 95.000.
According to other sources, Skopje (obviously) and Kumanovo have more inhabitants.
Bitola is clearly the largest city in the south of the country and its history stretches back just a little further than Skopjes past making it the oldest city in Macedonia.

The city has historic buildings including some from the Ottoman era and a very pleasant center.
irok Sokak is a long pedestrian street with restaurants, cafes, shops and hotels.
Another place where I have had delicious meals.

Here are three photos of irok Sokak.
With the exception of the two minarets you see at the end of the street, this photo has something Italian to me. Is this coming through the shutters on the windows? I dont know. Perhaps just a silly idea.
Presumably, Luciano and Silvio wont agree with this resemblance.
