Galicica mountain

 

A mountain situated in the outermost southwest part of the Republic of Macedonia, which, in the form of a typical horst, rises in between the Ohrid Valley to the west and the Prespa Valley to the east. To the north it is continued by the mountains of Petrino and Istok, and by the Bukovo col (1.207 m) it is morphologically separated from the Plaken Mountain. It stretches 50 km along the meridian, and its smallest width is between the village of Trpejca and the village of Leskoec (10 km). Only the southernmost

parts of Galichica rise above 2.000 m. Its part south of Zli Dol is called Old Galichica. It is the highest part of the national park with the most remarkable relief. Its sides cut steeply toward the lakes and are furrowed with dry ravines, which give the mountain an inaccessible look. It lowest points are at the level of Lake Ohrid (695 m.) and the level of Lake Prespa (850 m), with its highest peak being Magaro (2.255 m), and there is another peak at an altitude of 2.275 m situated on the very border with Albania.

 

The main geological surface on the greatest part of Mount Galichica are Paleozoic metamorphic silicates, covered by a 500-550 m thick layer of horizons of massive spongy limestone. Such a geological structure and the presence of the karst geomorphological forms make the mountain resemble the mountains from the Dinara system. On Galichica one may

encounter slopes, dolines, uvalas, and karst fields (surface karst features) and caves and sinkholes (ground karst features).

The water permeability of the limestone layer has turned Galichica into one of the driest mountains in Macedonia. Only a few continuously-flowing water springs can be found in its mountainous parts, but those have a very low yield. Compared to the mountainous part, the Lake Ohrid shoreline is rich in water springs. The springs near the St. Naum monastery

complex are the most characteristic ones. They represent a typical karst hydrological feature in the form of a spring.

 

Apart from their geological and hydrological features, the springs are characterized by a wealth of plant and animal life that inflate its ambient value. Due to the exceptional natural beauty and the distinctive flora and fauna of the forest areas on the Galichica Mountain, a great portion of the mountain, covering and area of 22.750 hectares, was proclaimed a National Park in 1958. The Galichica National Park, which is located in the outermost southwest parts of the Republic of Macedonia, is characteristic for its positioning

between the two lakes – Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa – as well as for its articulated orography and the interesting geomorphological features (deep ravines, different types of karst and glacial landforms).

 

Baba mountain

 

A mountain massif located in the southwest of the Republic of Macedonia, with Pelister as its highest peak (2.601 m). By virtue of the multi-staged tectonic activities, the mountain rises in a typical horst between the Pelagonia Valley to the east and the Prespa Valley to the west. To the north, via the mountain pass Gjavato (1.167 m) and Capari field, it is morphologically separated from the Bigla Mountain (1.656 m), while to the south it continues in Greece, all the way up to the mountain pass Vigla (1.505 m), along the Florina – Kastoria road. It stretches along the meridian to a total length of 35 km. The border between Macedonia and Greece passes through its southern parts. Within the territory of our country it covers an area of 436 km2. The dominant geomorphologic form of the high mountain area is the main ridge of the mountain, which also serves as a water divide between the Adriatic and the Aegean basins. Apart from Pelister, there are several other mountain peaks rising above 2.000 m from the ridge. Those are the following: Stiv (2.468 m), Visoka Cuka (2.182 m), Vrteska (2.010 m), Ilinden (2.542 m), Golemo Stapalo and (2.415 m).

 

The Pleistocene glaciation resulted in the occurrence of fossil cirques which accommodated the big and the small glacial lakes, or the so-called “Pelister’s Eyes”. Of plant life, the greatest area of the mountain is covered by molica forests, of which 1.174 hectares are under purely molica forests, while the rest is covered by combined molica-fir, molica-beech, molica-beech-fir, beech and oak-beech forests. As regards the elements of the flora, the most important is the presence of the five needle molica pine (Pinus peuce) –

a unique species dating back to the Tertiary age, that grows only on few mountains in the Balkan Peninsula, and reaches the ecological optimum of its development on Baba mountain, spreading across the altitude range from 1.000 to 2.200 m and above.

In 1948, due to the exceptional natural beauty and the historic and scientific significance of the forests and the forest ecosystems of the Baba Mountain, a portion of the mountain covering an area of 12.500 hectares was proclaimed a national park.

Voor de natuurliefhebber is een bezoek aan het Galičica National Park haast onvermijdelijk want de stad Ohrid is er vrijwel tegenaan ‘geplakt’.

 

Het karstgebergte Galičica (± 227 km2) is een van de drie nationale parken van Macedonië.

De ligging is werkelijk spectaculair: westelijk het vriendelijke Meer van Ohrid, oostelijk het ruigere Grote Prespameer, noordelijk het historische Ohrid en in het zuiden het nog steeds mysterieuze Albanië.

De verschillende ecosystemen in Galičica zijn verantwoordelijk voor de aanwezigheid van meer dan duizend plantensoorten, waaronder talrijke endemen.

Deze uitbundige flora zorgt op zijn beurt weer voor een rijk insectenleven met maar liefst 166 dagvlindersoorten.

Verder leven er ook talloze andere dieren waarvan het nationale symbool de Balkanlynx de bijzonderste is.

Een uitgebreid bewegwijzerd netwerk van wandel-en mountainbikepaden maakt het de natuurgenieter en sportieveling aantrekkelijk om het gebied te doorkruisen.

 

Galicica National Park represents a "hotspot" of biological diversity in Europe and beyond. Its rich biological diversity is of national, European and global value.The number of species of global, European and national importance is indeed considerable. In the Park there are 4 species of invertebrates and 13 of vertebrate animals, which are considered to be globally threatened. The international significance of the biological diversity in this park has been confirmed by numerous nominations, such as : " Emerald site", "Important Plant Area", "Primary Butterfly Area", "UNESCO World Heritage site", etc.

 

Other natural values of this Park are Stara Galicica, with its two remarkable cirques, and the Golem Grad Island and its charecteridtic geomorphology.

 

The Park also includes a vast cultural heritage, including several cultural monuments such as the Saint Naum Monastery and the churches Assumption of the Virgin Mary, Sain Stephen-Pancir, The Church of the Holy Mother of God at Zaum, that is the cave church Saint Virgin Mary at Pestani, as well as the cultural heritage on the Island of Golem Grad.

Mountain Baba and its highest peak Relister are located in the southern Macedonia. It is a mountain range highly raised between the Pelagonija Valley to the east and Lake Prespa to the west.

 

The National Park Pellister ( declared in 1948) is located in southern Macedonia and takes up an area of 12.500 hectares.

 

Particulary important is the presence of the five-needle pine tree Pinus peuce ( molika), which can be found growing only on a few mountains in the Balkan Peninsula.

 

The two glacial lakes-the Big an the Small Lake, also known as " Pelister's Eyes", are special hydrographic features. The Big Lake lies at an altitude of 2.218 metres above sea level. It is one of the highest glacial lakes in Macedonia.

Its sides cut steeply toward the lakes and are furrowed with dry ravines, which give the mountain an inaccessible look. It lowest points are at the level of Lake Ohrid (695 m.) and the level of Lake Prespa (850 m), with its highest peak being Magaro (2.255 m), and there is another peak at an altitude of 2.275 m situated on the very border with Albania.
