The picture was taken in the Gari village, mountain Bistra, National Park of Mavrovo in North Macedonia. The nature and atmosphere is spectacular and worth visiting. Each and every village in this region has its own architectural style, as well as village Gari.
What I like the most about this house and vernacular architecture in the Mavrovo National Park is that everything is made of natural materials that could be found in the surroundings. And everything is made to be functional for a family according to the conditions for life in this region – to be warm in winter, refreshing in summer. And the thing I liked the most is the fact that this house is so unique, unusual, like nothing else, completely made out from nature. Unfortunatelly, there are not many people that remained living here, maybe a dozen in the whole village.
