In the battle the Turkish army was defeated and was forced to withdraw.

Mosque Tatar Sinan Beg. Located near the center of Kumanovo, this mosque is a onedome, “Sultan” mosque and is known as Eski (former) Mosque. It was originally built in 1532 in the Turkish Orta-Bunar neighborhoods of Kumanovo. It is constructed from precision-crafted yellowish stone blocks. The unusually high circular drum of the dome and the small drum in the center of the dome are circular inside and outside, as well as a rare transitional solution inside the prayer space from a frieze of Turkish triangles of the dome.

Situated in the north-east of Macedonia Cocev Kamen is a hilltop cave site of volcanic origin near the town of Kratovo. Objects (bone fossils) discovered near the cave suggest human presence since the Paleolithic. Authors agree that the site served as a gathering point for sacrificial rituals from the Neolithic, during the Bronze age, throughout antiquity until the Middle Ages as clarified by an abundance of pottery shards, stone (flint) tools and bone fragments unearthed from the surrounding areas. Several caves and rock shelters are decorated with red figurative art work. Comparison with similar sites in Bulgaria and Italy suggests that the paintings are indeed prehistoric.
