[QUOTE=Bill77;50980]Protect? Who or what is the cause of this danger for the Aromanian language/culture[/QUOTE]
Yes, I would like for this statement to be clarified also. How exactly is Macedonia failing its Vlach population in Krushevo?

[QUOTE=Prolet;50983]Bill, Whats your opinion of Krushevo?[/QUOTE]I never been there mate and its one of my bigest regrets. Mabe next time.

I know Tose loved it dearly and had plans one day to write a song about Krushevo. Unfortunatly he was taken away from us before he can live that dream.

Bill, I agree mate

The good news now is that they built a road to the Manastir Sv Preobrazenije and EVN is going to provide the Electricity so it lights up at night. Krushevo is a top city, especially during winter time.

Just general assimilation into wider Macedonian society. Macedonia hasn't failed them, in fact they enjoy the best minority rights of all Aromanians. However just as is happening across the Balkans the Aromanian culture is slowly dissapearing. This however ut is an issue that the community themselves will have to adress, the country can only do so much.

ps. SoM I said that more could be done not that the country is failing them.

Mastika, The Vlasi have good minority rights and have always been part of Macedonia, Krushevo as a city is being redeveloped, we can always improve on all fronts but at the same time we have to be grateful for what we have because the Vlasi are not the only minority group in Macedonia.

Macedonia does more than enough to ensure that the Vlach minority has adequate resources to maintain their culture, language, traditions, etc. Anything more and it will look like they are being shown favour over the other minorities. What exactly is Macedonia not doing enough of, that is done for other minorities? (Please exclude the extra privileged ethnic Albanian minority that secured 'more rights' after terrorists among their population made war upon Macedonia and were rewarded for their actions by the West).

Macedonia can't be blamed if the Vlach's themselves don't utilise that which is provided to them (if that is actually the case). Are you a Vlach, Mastika?

Krusevo is the only city in the world that has vlach as one of the official languages i believe.

The vlach are very good people in macedonia, ideal minorities that trash like the shiptars should look to for insperation.

If the vlach people are slowly being assimilated into being macedonians then the blame can only be with them, but in saying that the vlach have always been people that have always assimilated with the larger majority in the balkans.
Maybe the Vlach dont see the assimilation with macedonians as a bad thing as they are pretty much macedonians anyway.

And as others have said, Krusevo is something special. It was my favourite place to visit in macedonia. Hoping more money and tourists come to Krusevo and that it never looses its magical old school feel and charm.

Just edited the title of the thread.
I see no need for Macedonians to refer to this town as "Crushuva".
If the Vlachs want to do that, they can do it on a Vlach forum. I am sure "pear" in Vlach has nothing to do with "krusha"

Prolet 05-04-2010 08:21 AM

Risto, Did you know that there is a Krushevo in Croatia too?


SOM, Are you from Vlasko Poteklo by any chance? Bitola has by far the most Vlach Villages especially in the Pelister region. Magarevo,Trnovo, Nize Pole are ones that come of the top of my head but the main cities where there are Vlachs in Macedonia are Skopje,Bitola,Prilep,Stip and Struga thats without adding Krushevo to the list.
