Pehčevo (Macedonian: Пехчево [ˈpɛxtʃɛvɔ] ( )) is a small town situated in the eastern part of the Republic of Macedonia. It is the seat of the homonymous Pehčevo Municipality. According to the last census in 2002, the town had 3,193 residents.[1]

History[edit]

In the late 19th and early 20th century, Pehčevo was part of the Kosovo Vilayet of the Ottoman Empire. In 1913, as a result of the Balkan Wars, the town became a part of the Kingdom of Serbia, which in 1918 joined the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes (in 1929 renamed Kingdom of Yugoslavia). From 1929 to 1941, Pehčevo was part of the Vardar Banovina of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

From 1941 to 1944, during the Axis occupation of Yugoslavia, Pehčevo, as most of Vardar Macedonia, was annexed by the Kingdom of Bulgaria.
