Pelister - Photo Gallery - Part 1

The peak Pelister with the slopes of Baba Mountain, in 1948 are proclaimed as a National park, mainly due to the relict of the tertiary flora – Molika (Pinus Peuce Griseb) and the morphological and glacial relief in the alpine part of the mountain. Molika is five-needled pine tree that beside Pelister, can be seen only in few parts on Balkan Peninsula.
National Park Pelister is characterized by lush, well-watered forests and unique geological formations, which include layers of Paleozoic and Mesozoic magma rocks and layers of quartz. The core of the mountain is made of granite rocks, some even 465 million years old.
The mountain has several peaks higher than 2000 meters (6,500 feet): Pelister (2601 m), Veternica (2420 m), Muza (2351 m), Rzana (2334 m) and Griva (2198 m).
Pelister is also rich in rivers, springs and streams, but especially interesting are the mountain lakes located at an altitude of 2.218 meters (Big Lake) and 2.180 m (Small Lake), locally known as the Mountain’s Eyes or Pelister's Eyes.
There are many endemic flowers in Pelister. The beauty of the area is completed with wild animals like bears, wolfs, goats, stags, boars, rabbits, a few kinds of eagles, Partridges, redbeak jackdaws and endemic Мacedonian pelagonytrout.
