An excellent excursion for the lovers of natural beauty (mountains, rivers, lakes, national parks), and those fond of massage and spa treatment in thermal baths with therapeutic water. The town of Debar is situated in the western part of the Republic of Macedonia, near the borderline between Macedonia and Albania. Debar is positioned next to the Debar lake, formed by damming the cleanest rivers in Macedonia: Radika (coming from north) and Crni Drim (coming from south).

Over the centuries, diverse cultures and religions have met here, giving it a special meaning as the city of coexistence and multicultural living between Christians and Muslims. Here you will see mosques and churches from the 14th century. Owning to the wealth of its dwellers and the mastery of Debar's wood-carvers and construction workers and free-masons, the town experienced its peak economic prosperity between the 17th and 19th century, during the period of the late Ottoman Empire rule over Macedonia. Master craftsmen from Debar manufactured some of the best known iconostases throughout Macedonia, Bulgaria and Russia.

One of the more significant structures from the time of Ottoman Empire is the Inkjar Mosque, built in the 15th century, by the order of the Sultan Mehmed Fatih the Conqueror. In the center of Debar, you will see the remains of a Turkish bath.
