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). 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). In the west of Reka is the region of Lumë, which extends in both Kosovo and Albania.
