The people of Brajchino still produce a variety of food for themselves or to sell at the market place. The village is also known for its architecture. Some examples of Brajčino architecture include the Bey's House and Petre Kostov's House. Lazaropole Lazaropole is situated on a plateau at Mount Bistra and is a mountain heaven in Macedonia. The mild mountain climate due to the thermal influences of the Mediterranean which extend along the river of Radika is a reason for Lazaropole to have over 2000 sunny hours per year. The abundant forests as a natural filter purify the air to the level of crystal clarity. As a result, Lazaropole is officially registered as a location with the freshest air on the Balkan Peninsula.
