HistoryEdit

During the great migration movements in Macedonia at the end of the 17th and beginning of the 18th centuries, Macedonian Muslims left the Debar area for the central regions of Macedonia and established villages such as Elovo located in the Skopje area.[1]

DemographicsEdit

Elovo has traditionally been inhabited by a Macedonian Muslim (Torbeš) population.[1] The language of daily communication is Macedonian.[2] In Elovo there are small numbers of Albanians from the neighbouring village of Crn Vrv who reside there through marriage with locals and are assimilated in the village.[2]

According to the 2002 census, the village had a total of 265 inhabitants.[3] Ethnic groups in the village include:[3]
