Trebište, Trebishte, or Trebišta (Macedonian: Требиште, Albanian: Trebisht) (the pronunciation used by the local population is Trebišča) is a village in the Republic of Macedonia in Mavrovo and Rostuša Municipality, situated in the Dolna Reka district, on the eastern slopes of Dešat, above the gorge of Radika.


In 1426 Albanian nobleman Gjon Kastrioti and his three sons (one of them was Skanderbeg) donated the right to the proceeds from taxes collected from the villages Rostuša and Trebište and from the church of Saint Mary, which was in one of them, to the Hilandar.[1] In an Ottoman defter from 1467, the village of Trabšta is mentioned together with Rostuša as part of the Reka vilayet. According to this document, the village then had 15 Christian Orthodox families. In 1519, 55 Christian Orthodox families were recorded in the village, while in 1583, the village had 41 Christian Orthodox families and 5 Muslim families.[2]

In the 19th century, Trebište was a mixed Macedonian (Christian)-Pomak (Muslim) village in the district of Dolna Reka, then part of the Ottoman Empire.[citation needed]


Trebište has traditionally been inhabited by Orthodox Macedonians and a Muslim Macedonian (Torbeš) population.[3]

According to the 2002 census, the village had a total of 765 inhabitants.[4] Ethnic groups in the village include:[4]
