Kratovo

Trip Planner Europe  /  Republic of Macedonia  /  Kratovo
Kratovo is a small picturesque town in Macedonia, one of the regions' living museums. It is the seat of Kratovo Municipality. It lies on the western slopes of Mount Osogovo at an altitude of above sea level. Having a mild and pleasant climate, it is located in the crater of an extinct volcano. It is famous for its bridges.HistoryTetradrachmas of Philip II of Macedon found in Kratovo and might suggest that there was a settlement here even in those times.In Roman times on the place of present day town there was a settlement called Tranatura. There was a mine nearby and the town was the seat of local authorities. No remains of the settlement was found but remnants of Roman fortification were found on Zdravče kamen hill above the town.In 1153 Arab geographer al-Idrisi mentions the town of Koritos (or Koritas) and adds that it is wealthy and well populated. A charter of Byzantine emperor Alexios III from 1199 mentions the bishop of Koriton. In all probability the wealth of the town came from its mines.The golden age of Kratovo started after in 1282 it became part of Serbia. Soon afterwards here settled Saxon miners who already worked in other parts of Serbia. The town was first mentioned under present day name in 1330. Gold, silver, lead, iron and copper were mined in the immediate vicinity and in wider surroundings of the town.
