Entering the temple of Inviolate Virgin Mary (lower church)

Its whereabouts were at the location of the old school at the center of Vevcani. It is an old church which the Turks tore it down. At the very same place the villagers started building a new one. The construction started in the twenties 1921-1928. The church was built for a 1,5 meters, but the funding sources were short so the building stopped. The entrance was from two big doors, one from the east the other from west, there were other smaller entrances and stairs from the north side. There are ruins of the church visible today in the center of Vevcani.

Church St. Nicholas (upper church)


This is a gathering church where villagers gather to celebrate all the religious holidays. The permit for this church to be built was issued in Vevcani in 1834, and for the very same the villagers gave a lot of money for bribery. The fact that the floor of the church is above the ground is a great evidence for the bribery, because back in those days it wasn’t allowed for churches to be built above the ground only as basements. It is said that firstly the church was built seven feet below the ground but it was buried. The church is constructed with hand carved stone blocks. Its length is 18 meters and she is 12,5 meters wide. The front door is walled with tin, above it, like the rest of the openings, there are religious symbols carved on the rocks.

The drawing of the icons are made by Dimitar Krstevic – Dico Zografot (1819 – 1872) origin from Tresonce, from Debar region. This distinguished painter has left very valuable art work behind him.

At the north-east part of the church there is the Church bell that was given as a gift by the brothers Nasto and Krstan Kostojcinoski, they brought the bell from Romania where they used to work, as many other men from Vevcani.

On the 10.10.1999 started the construction of a new part to the church with the dimensions of 14x12m on the west side of the church, as the churches extension. This part is for baptism, icon gallery, library with a reading room, candle store, an office and an apartment.
