Summary/Abstract: The urbanisation of the settlements on the territory of Macedonia in the nineteenth century contributed to the development of citizenship. That citizenship became one of the pillars of the development of education, that is, literature, art, construction, etc. In the article we focus on the influence that the town environment had on the Macedonian woman in the XIX century through the bazaar, folk songs and singers, chalgians and troubadours, town clothes versus the village costumes, as well as the gradual suppression of the patriarchal community.
