Makrochori (Greek: Μακροχώρι, before 1928: Κωνομπλάτη - Konomplati[1]) is a village in the Kastoria regional unit in West Macedonia, Greece.

The name of the village in Bulgarian and Macedonian is Кономлади, Konomladi. A village in Petrich Municipality, Blagoevgrad Province, Bulgaria, is named Novo Konomladi (Bulgarian: Ново Кономлади, "New Konomladi"). This is because it was mostly populated by Bulgarian refugees from Makrochori who moved to Bulgaria after the Balkan Wars of 1912–1913.[2]

A notable native is the Internal Macedonian-Adrianople Revolutionary Organization (IMARO) revolutionary Mitre the Vlach (1873–1907).[3]
