The Municipalities of Plasnica and Vranestica are the smallest two municipalities in our region. They are located in the Southern region of Kicevo valley at the foot of Mount Baba along the River Treska. The abundance of water from numerous springs, the mountains with beautiful pastures and various plants, have been the base for existence of old civilizations. Archaeological surveys have revealed settlements from the Neolithic period, Iron Age, Roman and late Antique times. Today, the fertile soil along the river allows the cultivation of crops, such as organic potato, carrot and cabbage. The most common fruits are plums, pears and apples. Vranestica is especially renowned with its pottery community. Over 30 craftsmen from here, produce 80% of the clay pots in the country.
