If you are looking for a place for a weekend where you can relax and enjoy nature in all its beauty, away from city noise and traffic jam, and for a short time to enjoy in the peace, the tranquility and the nature whit which Macedonia abounds than Berovo Lake is a perfect getaway for you.

Berovo is located in the Maleshevo region, in the extreme eastern part of Macedonia, on the both coasts of the river Bregalnica. According to one of the legends the city of Berovo got the name when the people from the neighboring villages and settlements started to gather (in Macedonian `bere`) in the Maleshevo Ravine.

Berovo can be reached from the main city of Macedonia, Skopje, through the cities Veles, Stip, Kocani and Vinica. You enter only the city of Vinica, the rest of the cities are bypassed. Berovo is 165 km far from Skopje, and 335 km far from Ohrid.

After passing the Kocani rice fields, you are welcomed with mountains, vegetation and pine forest. The region of Malesevo is also known as `little Switzerland`. Malesevo is full of pine and oak trees. That is why Berovo craftsmen are well known for their skill in traditional wood crafting.
After you enter in Berovo, after the police station you turn right, and then on the first street you turn left to get to the road that leads to the Berovo Lake. I didn`t see any signs on the road (maybe because it was already dark when we came to Berovo) but we get directions from the polite people of Berovo. 

Berovo Lake is 7 km far from Berovo, it is 1000 m above sea level. The peace and tranquility embraces the nature. In the weekend-houses around the lake there are only few visitors that same like us are in search for the earth heaven. It seams that if you speak a little beat louder you will wake up the gods that were so generous. You accept the peace quietly and you aspire to a spiritual nirvana. And it is no wonder that on the road from Berovo to the Berovo Lake there as an active women monastery `St. Archangel Michael`, built in 1815.


This region is characterized with cool summer and cold winter. It has mainly rainy days, mostly in May, June and November. Because of its nice climate it is a great getaway in summer.

Because of its high concentration of oxygen, the visitors are coming to get energy for working days and to rehab. In Maleshevo the natives prepare home made traditional medicaments for different diseases. Most famous is the pine syrup or pine honey, cure for the respiration disorders.

Because of the wide green meadows and the clear and unpolluted air also famous for its taste is the white berovo cheese (`berovsko sirenje`).

Accommodation is offered in the city of Berovo, hotel Manastir that is near the Monastery St. Archangel Michael, in the Lovechi dom (Hunting home), in the children resort with simple cabins by the lake or in private accommodation in the villas surrounding the lake. The best recommended places are Villa Lina and Ciplakova koliba.
