Reka region

Reka (Macedonian: Река) is a geographical region in Macedonia, which encompasses a quadrangle with Albania in the west, the town of Debar and the Mavrovo mountain, and Kičevo in the east. The region is home to a demographically mixed population of Mijaks (ethnic Macedonians), Albanians, and Torbeši (Muslim ethnic Macedonians).[1] There are Orthodox Christian Albanians especially in the sub-region of Upper Reka. The sub-regions (ethnographic/geographic regions) of Reka are Mala (small), Dolna (lower) and Golema (large) or Gorna (Upper Reka).[2] In the west of Reka is the region of Lumë, which extends in both Kosovo and Albania.[3]
