kocani tower

Kocani Tower was built during the Ottoman period. Now it is a Library archive. It is interesting to see how it was structured as a fortress and house.

kocani dam

Kocani dam supplies water to the rice fields. It is a small dam, but looks nice. There is a small fall nearby. Mountains and villages with old, stone-made houses around there also have nice taste. It seems very nice place for hiking, picnicking and mountain-biking and stuff.

rice fields

There are rice fields in Macedonia. Macedonia is used to be a main rice producer of Balkans. The rice fields are in Kocani. The scenery there is very much similar to Japanese country side, where you can see rice fields... Macedonia rice is a similar kind to Japanese one.

Swedmilk is a new foreign investment in Macedonia, using local milk and selling the products in the local market. The package is totally different from other local dairy products. It looks attractive and trustworthy enough to be a reason for me to buy it. Macedonian companies should learn from this how important role packaging plays.

Kratovo is in Eastern Macedonia, in the mountain area. It is a small town, but has certain taste. Nice to visit and walk around.
