Architecture on Shirok Sokak in Bitola
Sirok Sokak (Широк Сокак, Wide Street) is the main street in Bitola, a place where you go if you want to see someone in Bitola or to be seen.
Many travel writers and travelers passers, which passed Bitola through the ages, marveling at the beauty of the town and its main street noticed:
"If you were in Bitola, and you have not walked through the Main Street, than you have seen nothing."
Fascinated by this street, many pronounced and unknown artists, especially poets and composers, made some of the most beautiful Macedonian songs.
Ако одам во Битола (If I go to Bitola)
Ќе прошетам по Широк Сокак (I will walk on Sirok Sokak)
А на Дембел чаршија (And on "Dembel" bazaar)
Кафе ќе се напијам (I will drink coffee)
