Jakupica


Jakupica

Jakupica ( _mk. audio|Mk-Jakupica.ogg|Јакупица) is a mountain range in the central part of the Republic of Macedonia. Its highest peak is Solunska Glava (2540 metres above the sea level). Other significant peaks are: Karadzica (2,473 m), Popovo Brdo (2,380 m), Ostar Breg (2,365 m), Ubava (2,353 m), Ostar Vrv (2,275 m), and Dautica (2,178 m).

The relief is criss-crossed by numerous clear and fast mountain rivers. Large areas are covered with beech, oak, and conifer forests. There are also obvious traces of the primeval glaciation from the diluvial period. A number of liable institutions have been recommending the promotion of this area (and the one of the Šar Mountains) into a national park.

The mountain can be easily approached from the capital Skopje, or from the town of Veles and many villages in the area.

On clear days, from the peak Solunska Glava, one could even see the city of Thessaloniki in Greece, hence the peak's name (Solun meaning Thessaloniki and Glava meaning Head in Macedonian, the Head of Thessaloniki).
