Malovište (Malovishte) – St. Paraskeva

Saint Petka – Saint Paraskeva – Света петка (Sveta Petka) – Malovište (Malovishte)

Unfortunately, our visit to the picturesque mountain Vlach village of Malovište (Malovishte) in the Pelister National Forest, 24 kilometers east of Bitola was on an overcast rainy day.  This church dedicated to St. Paraskeva (Sv Petka) that was built in 1856.

At the zadruga (general store) in the village we met a gentleman who sent a kid running off down the street to find the person with the key to the church.  Later a gentleman with the key led us up the road to the church and let us inside.  He did not know how to turn on the lights.
