Makedonski Brod in antiquity

In the location of the present-day town, there was a bridge that connected the towns of Prilep and Kicevo, which gave the name of the town. According to a tomb inscription found in the village of Krapa, it was determined that the area was populated by the Romans. Later, with the arrival of Slavs to the Balkan peninsula, the Slavic tribe Berziti (Brsjaci) settled here.
