Maria "Mika" Muhova (Bulgarian: Мария Мухова; 17 May 1909 – 24 March 2016), also known as Maria Muhovska, was a Bulgarian centenarian who was the oldest person in Bulgaria from the death of Gyulbie Yumer in February 2016.


Maria was born on 17 May 1909. She had a twin sister, Stoyanka Grebcheva, who died few month before she turned 100. Her younger sister, Magdalena Domuschieva (19 September 1912 – 3 August 2016), died a month before her 104th birthday. Maria's father died at 107. Maria married seven years younger Stoyan and had at least one child with him, daughter Tsvetanka.

In March 2016, Maria and her sister Magdalena shared that the cause of their longevity was in two things - genes and turmeric tea. In January 2016, she became the oldest living person in Bulgaria following the death of 109-years-old Gyulbie Yumer.

Muhova died in Oborishte, Bulgaria on 24 March 2016 at the age of 106 years, 312 days.
