Hammond, NGL (NGL Hammond), (1972), ''A History of Macedonia, Volume I: Historical geography and prehistory'', Oxford:At the Clarendon Press, Oxford University Press, pg. 59 It was founded by Philip II of Macedon in the middle of the 4th century BC, after he had conquered the surrounding region of Lynkestis and incorporated it into his kingdom of Macedon. The city was named in honor of the mythological Greek hero Heracles. The epithet ''Lynkestis'' means "the Land of the Lynx" in Greek (Greek language). Leaving the Athens–Thessaloniki mainline at Platy, it runs alongside the Aliakmon River, through Alexandria and then passes through to Veria, Naoussa, and Skydra, before climbing to Edessa and then, along the northern shore of Lake Vegoritida, reaching Amyntaio. At Amyntaio the line branches into two lines, one towards Kozani, serving Ptolemaida and power stations of the State Electricity commpany DEH (Kozani-Amyntaio railway line); and one towards the city of Florina. At Neos Kafkasos, there is a junction leading north across the border to the city of Bitola in the Republic of Macedonia. This short international connection is now disused, with all international traffic being routed via Idomeni and Gevgelija. thumb left 250px Dame Gruev together with other rebel leaders (Image:Gruev Razvigorov Chuchkov Babata.jpg) Dame Gruev was born in 1871 in the village of Smilevo, Ottoman Macedonia (Ottoman Vardar Macedonia) (present-day district of Bitola, Demir Hisar Municipality, Republic of Macedonia). He received his elementary education in Smilevo and continued his education in the Bulgarian Men's High School of Thessaloniki. After a student revolt Gruev, with a group of his comrades, were excluded from the school. In the early 1888, the group, consisting of 19 people, including other future IMRO-revolutionaries was attracted by the Serbian propaganda. As result they went to study in a Serbian Gymnazium in Belgrade at expense of the St. Sava Association. Later Gruev continued his education in the Great School in Belgrade. There he, and his comrades were put under a strong pressure to serbianize (Serbianization) them and they rebelled again. As a consequence, all they were excluded from the Great School and emigrated am block to Bulgaria. Here Gruev began to study history at the Sofia University and afterwards enrolled in the Young Macedonian Literary Society. He found also the circle "Druzhba", whose aim was to implement "Article 23" from the Treaty of Berlin (1878) on authonomy of Macedonia. In 1891 Gruev was expelled from the University as he was suspected in the assassination of the Minister Hristo Belchev, but subsequently this allegations turned groundless. left thumb 250px Bulgarian School in Krushevo (Image:Krushevo school.JPG) (1910) Until the Balkan Wars 1912 1913, the Bulgarian Exarchate disposed of a total of 23 bishoprics in Bulgaria, most of the Torlaks-populated area (in 1878 partly ceded by the Ottoman Empire to Serbia) and Macedonia: Vidin, Vratsa, Nish (Niš) (till 1878), Lovech, Veliko Tarnovo, Rousse, Silistra, Varna, Preslav, Sliven, Stara Zagora, Pirot (till 1878), Plovdiv, Sofia, Samokov, Kyustendil, Skopje, Debar, Bitola, Ohrid, Veles (Veles (city)), Strumitsa and Nevrokop; also it was represented by acting chairmen in charge in eight other bishoprics in Macedonia (Macedonia (region)) and the Adrianople Vilayet (Lerin Florina , Voden Edessa (Edessa, Greece) , Kostur Kastoria , Solun Thessaloniki , Kukush Kilkis , Syar Serres , Odrin Adrianople and Xanthi). * Wikipedia:Bitola Commons:Category:Bitola
