Asamati (Macedonian: Асамати; Albanian: Asamat, Osomat) is a village in the Resen Municipality of the Republic of Macedonia, on the northeastern shore of Lake Prespa. Asamati is located just over 12 kilometres (7.5 mi) from the municipal centre of Resen[1] and has 175 residents.[2]

History[edit]

Asamati is home to several archaeological sites, dating from various historical eras, most of which were discovered by accident. Many of the findings from the sites, such as pithos and roof tiles, are housed at the Saraj in Resen.[3]

In the 19th century, the population of the village, listed then as "Adamite", consisted of 16 households with 30 Muslim inhabitants and 16 Bulgarians.[4] In 1905, Asamati had 150 inhabitants, of which 102 were Muslim Albanians and the remainder were Bulgarian Exarchists.[5]

During World War I, the village had 115 residents.[6]

Demographics[edit]

The population of Asamati is ethnically mixed, consisting of Orthodox Macedonians living alongside Muslim Sunni and Bektashi Albanians, of whom the latter are known locally as Kolonjarë.[7] It is the only village in the municipality with no majority ethnic group.[8]
