city in northern Macedonia. It lies east-northeast of Skopje, on the rail and road link between Niš, Serbia, and Skopje. Agriculture and metal and tobacco processing contribute to the local economy. In 1912 the Serbians heavily defeated a Turkish army on the Kumanovo plain. About 8 miles (13 km) to the east of the city is the Staro Nagoričane Monastery, built by the Serbian king Milutin in 1318. It contains valuable frescoes. Also nearby is the 16th-century Matejić Monastery, an example of the “five cupola” style, and a spa resort with hot mineral waters. Pop. (2002) mun., 103,205.
