Probishtip The name of the town originates from the name of the feudal master Ivanko Probishtipovik who has had a property in this region in the middle ages.
Since it is a region rich in mines, its settlement can be traced very far back in history. The old Illyrian tribe Peoni used to live here. The Romans have built their mining settlements, and afterwards, together with the Macedonians, the Vlachs and the mining tribes Sasi settled here.
The history of Probishtip and its vicinity comprises the building and the existence of the Lesnovo monastery, which is today one of the most important and most valuable monuments of culture in Macedonia.
