Bosilovo (Macedonian: Босилово) is a municipality located in southeastern North Macedonia, just east of Strumica. The municipality is home to 16 villages with over 14,000 residents. Bosilovo is home to a relatively high concentration of Catholics and Methodists, somewhat unique in North Macedonia where most Christians are Orthodox. The municipality also has a small Muslim minority, a remnant of the Turkish population that has largely left the area.

The ruined mosque of Radovo
  • 1 Monospitovo Swamp (Моноспитовско Блато) (village of Monospitovo). This large marsh is a remnant of a lake that arose around 20 million years ago. It is in the Stara Reka River valley, 10 km (6 mi) northeast of Strumica. As North Macedonia's only swamp, it is home to unique flora and fauna. It is down a dirt road in the village of Monospitovo. There is a wooden boardwalk running above some of the swamp. There are plans to make the area more recreation-friendly. (Q12908719) on Wikidata
