‘Kruševo, hill town overlooking the plain’


Again Kruševo. This time three pictures taken in the town with more open views.

The average altitude of Kruševo is 1.350 metres.
Its houses are set amphitheatrically. In the plain below lies Prilep (the town of some previous photos).

Most houses of Kruševo have a white facade and a red roof. Yet in this photo you also see a green, two blue and two brown roofs.
For some people, the uniformity of housing can seem boring.
Living myself in a country where very different styles of buildings coexist (because in the past there were few or no urban planning rules) I’ve always enjoyed seeing some kind of uniformity of buildings in other places I visited.

On a side note, Kruševo is officially bilingual: Macedonian and Aromanian.
Two town names, Крушево (Macedonian) and Crushuva (Aromanian) are official.
Aromanian also known as Macedo-Romanian or Vlach, is an Eastern Romance language, a bit similar to Romanian. Its speakers are called Aromanians or Vlachs.
Aromanian shares many features with modern Romanian. But while Romanian has been influenced to a greater extent by the Slavic languages, Aromanian has been more influenced by Greek.
