        I'm surprised anyone even lives there - according to Wikipedia there's only 1,000 inhabitants in the region.

        I always thought it was just an empty wasteland...oh, it sort of is.

          1,000 people?, lol, yeah I think thatís an over estimate. The whole area is literally made up of decrepit ghost villages now, populated mainly by rocks and shrubs (as opposed to the 600 odd people each village used to house) To access most of the area and villages you need a 4WD (and I mean 4WD). If youíre lucky every second village may have 2 or 5 inhabitants whose live stock are free to dominate most of the properties. The closer to Prilep you get, the more people you will find and the more accessible the roads become. Most visitors would be right to probably consider it now as nothing more than a nature reserve with remanents of how peasant life would have likely been lived for over 2,000 years (which is why itís served as a popular backdrop for older period pieces). If you like isolation and have an urge to return to nature, itís the place for you.

            Since we are talking about it, for those unaware of the story of the area (which all Mariovci are only too happy to remind everyone about lol):

            It is said that Mariovo was named after the beautiful and brave girl Marija. The legend says that some Turkish Pasha who had conquered the villages of Mariovo, had fallen in love with this girl and, enchanted by her beauty, was prepared to do everything to gain her love. But Marija’s father was not approving on it, because his daughter was a Christian, and the Turk was a Muslim. The Pasha would not give up. Marija had answered his persistence with one condition: she would become his wife, but the entire region, from the Poloski monastery, Selecka mountain, to the village by the name of Brod, then the Bitola region, the Nidze mountain and to the reach of Kozjak, to remain Christian and that not a single Turk should be inhabited there. The Pasha agreed to this condition, signed papers on that decision and took Marija with him. He took her on the road leading to the village of Dunje, Marija suddenly took the knife from her folds, and forcefully killed herself. Taking away her life, she did not surrender to the pasha, who later, although he wanted to, could not annul the contract he previously signed. By the power of this document, the guarantee that the entire region should remain Christian was respected. In the honor of the girl and her courageous act, and the love for her fellow people, the region was named Mariovo.
