Here they can see one of the most beautiful compositions of mosaics, in this part of the Balkans, the ancient theater, numerous Roman busts and an early Christian basilica, among other things. This activity will take about an hour. Returning to the center of Bitola, it will be a visit back in history, to the times of the Ottoman rule. This part of the tour will cover the old Turkish covered bazaar, the Isak Pasha mosque and the Church of St. Dimitija. This will complete the sightseeing in Bitola.
