Macedonia region[edit]

A large proportion of Aromanians can be found in the Macedonia (region); Albania; Greece; Macedonia and Bulgaria (region of Pirin Macedonia).

The City of Moscopole (Aromanian: Moscopole, Albanian: Voskopojë, Voskopoja) was home to the largest Aromanian population in the world. It was the cultural and commercial center of the Aromanians with a population of over 60,000 people. The city was razed to the ground by Ali Pasha in 1788 causing an exodus of Aromanian people across the Balkans. Many of these ended up in what would become the Republic of Macedonia, Albania and Greece. The largest concentration of these were in the Pelister region of Macedonia, the city of Kruševo and around the Prespa Lakes. The Moscopolitans of the Moscopoleanji as they are known in Aromanian form one of the largest populations of Aromanians today. They speak the Moscopolean dialect of Aromanian and the descendants of the Moscopolean's in Krusevo (Aromanian: Crushuva, Macedonian: Крушево) are today a fully recognised minority group under the constitutional law of the Republic of Macedonia.
