The Village of Velušina (Velushina) – Велушина
Velushina is located 15 kilometers south of Bitola (Битола) on route R2333 (about six kilometers north of the border with Greece) at the foot of Mount Baba in the Pelagonija (Пелагонија) Valley. The Velushka River (Велушка Река) flows through the village,.
We happened to be in the area seeing some friends in Bitola and joined them for an impromptu visit to this village. We greeted by great stone architecture and agrarian lifestyles.
We also visited Velushki Monastery – Велушки манастир dedicated to St. George. Also located nearby is Velushka Tumba (Велушка Тумба) a Neolithic settlement which is one of 70 sites of prehistoric life in the Pelagonija area that have been discovered.1
