King Marko's Monastery

Marko Mrnjavčević (1335-1395) was the Serbian king from 1371 to 1395 and the de facto ruler of territory in western Macedonia centered on the town of Prilep.

South of Skopje, in the outskirts of an unassuming village called Markova Sušica, is the Markov Monastir. Built in 1346 by Marko, King of Serbia, this medieval monastery has remained remarkably unaffected by the passage of time.

AT last! FYROM is the name of the country NOT Macedonia! Macedonia is an area and the biggest part of it is part of Greece.
This is insulting for a lot of Greeks that read your blog! The UN states FYROM!
