Pelince ( _mk. Пелинце) is a village in the
Republic of Macedonianear Kumanovoand the borderbetween the Republic of Macedoniaand Serbia. It is in the Staro Nagoričane municipality.
The village became popular among the citizens of the
Republic of Macedoniain 2004 when a new national commemorative of ASNOMwas built in the village, where the annual celebration of the Macedonian statehood (The Second Ilinden of 1944) has taken place ever since. This decision was brought due to the countinious refusals by the Serbian Orthodox Churchauthorities to allow Macedonian delegations to visit and celebrate the holidayin the actual venue of ASNOM, the Prohor Pčinjski monastery which is on Serbian territory near the Macedonian border and near the village of Pelince.
