About Kozuf

Kozuf ski resort is situated deep in the Kozuf mountain in the southern part of the Republic of Macedonia. Kozuf is slowly becoming the most visited attraction in the Gevgelija region.

Kozuf's most western parts reach the river Blashnica, and the north-western side stretches in a line, from the Mrezhichko village via the village Konopishte (Kavadarci area), through the course of Boshava riverto the town of Demir Kapija.
