Event info

This traditional competition in Macedonia this year is also the pre event for the European Championship 2016 that will be held here. Its also the National Championship of Hungary and Macedonia for 2015...

Flying site

Situated at an altitude of 1350m, Krushevo is the highest town in the Balkans, 159 km from the capital Skopje, 55 km from Bitola, 32 km from Prilep, and only 68 km from the Macedonian - Greek crossing border “Medzitlia - Niki”. Main takeoff places are East and West starts. Very comfortable even for beginners they also enjoy excellent (in mountain terms) roads connections.
East Start 1420m ASL (41.340802, 21.256547)
It is facing east - northeast towards Pelagonia Valley. It is several minutes drive from the town and an asphalt road goes almost through the launch. When you take the paraglider out from the car, it is already on the place where it should be open. Lazy pilots will love this launch. East Start is a grassy shallow slope bordered by big trees from the South, which offers thick shadows in sunny days.
Home thermals are everywhere: on the left, on the right side from the take off and sometimes straight ahead.
All kind of different cross-country flights can be made from East start. Usual flights are out-and-return to town Prilep to the East, all kind of triangles and zigzags in the valley or over the ridge or distance flights to the South up to the Greek border. Coming back from the South is quite difficult because in "normal" summer afternoon light north wind is blowing through the valley. A good road connection helps coming back.
West Start 1440m ASL
It's a secondary smaller take off place facing west - southwest, it is 500 meters away from East Start. Cars, again, can be driven right up to the launch.
The same cross-country flights can be done from here. Landing fields under this launch are smaller than on the other side of mountain where there are very large fields, mostly grassy. This launch can also be used for beginners so landings should suit competition pilots too!

Bus

A number of bus lines connect Macedonia with all neighbouring countries and other European cities. Buses are frequent, and offer relatively inexpensive fares and professional service. Usually they depart from Skopje bus station.
Travelling on public inter-city buses in Macedonia used to be quite an interesting experience, since it usually included loud folk music and the risk of having to travel next to very different people with sometimes not so pleasant habits, subject to many urban legends and jokes. At present, public buses have improved and most of them have air-conditioning as well. Still, if you decide to travel by a public inter-city bus, do check it first before buying a ticket.

Train

An international train, operating daily, twice a day, connects Ljubljana (Slovenia) and Thessaloniki (Greece) via Macedonia. It stops at Tabanovce (the Macedonia-Serbia border crossing point), Kumanovo, Skopje, Veles, Gradsko, Negotino, DemirKapija, and Gevgelija (Greek border crossing point), as well as a few small villages. From Skopje, Veles and Gradsko there are train connections to Prilep (35 km from Krusevo).

Car

The international highway E-75 runs north-south from Serbia to Greece, bisecting Macedonia. This is the most common route for overland tourists to take for entering Macedonia. There are also good roads connecting the country with Bulgaria to the East and Albania to the West.
Krusevo is on around a 2 hour drive (160 km) from Skopje Airport, via Motorway "Alexander of Macedon"/A1/А1 and A1, or on about 1 h 36 min drive (119.7 km) from Ohrid Airport via E65 and R1305 (note that this path is not a highway).

Rent-a-car
Numerous car-rental companies, run by both Macedonian companies and local representatives of recognized Western companies are available in Macedonia. Among the latter there are Sixth, Avis and Hertz, whereas among the most prominent Macedonian companies one should name Biveks, Ineks, Mn, Ni-Mar Komerc and Putnik-Eurodolar.
Rental car prices in Macedonia generally start from 40-50 euros per day, though for longer periods the rate can be somewhat lower. In order to rent a car, be prepared to present a valid passport and driver's license from your home country.


Driving tips
Driving in Macedonia by car: While roads in Macedonia are generally good, drivers should watch out for falling rock zones in mountainous areas, and dogs, cows and sheep in rural areas. Drivers should also note that in Macedonia it is illegal to talk on a mobile phone while driving, seatbelts are mandatory and headlights have to be on during the day.
