This website is my attempt at preserving the incredible natural beauty of Selo Besiste and surrounding villages in Mariovo, so that it can be shared with future generations.
The beautiful village of selo Bešište is located in the region of Mariovo, about 50 km south of the town of Prilep, in the Republic of Macedonia (FYROM).
Today my Bešište is:
Contened, Distant, Embracing, Primitive,
Forgotten, Fragmented, Lonely, Pure,
Warm, Humming with Nature,
Invites one to Return.
