  • It's not a large collection of sacred icons, but it's pretty inclusive of the Ohrid area and includes many fine ancient icons from the many centuries of Orthodox Christianity in this sacred area.  more »

  • The magnificent collection of religious icons on show in this gallery date from the middle of the 11th to the end of the 19th Century. All of them are vibrant and powerful, none of the photographs of them do them justice as it's difficult to capture the combination of painted elements and fine metal work - they are far and away the most amazing art in Ohrid.
  • I love this place because I work there as an Art Historian on the position of Advisor Curator for more than 16 years, but that is not the most important reason. The beauty, spirituality, value and significance of this icon collection is very well known an appreciated worldwide. So far they have been displayed on many international exhibitions of Byzantine art in most prestigious museums of the world, such as the Louvre, National Museums in Tokyo and Kyoto, Metropolitan, Musei Vatican, Royal Academy of arts and many more. So, I recommend and invite everybody who comes in OHRID to visit this exceptional place and admire the beauty of these artworks that fit perfectly in the setting of this old spiritual and artistic place.

Where to stay in Ohrid

Combining natural beauty and historical sights, Ohrid is one of Macedonia’s best known and most visited destinations. In spite of its modest size, the scenic shore of Lake Ohrid offers an array of accommodations. Hotels range from luxurious to budget-friendly. Much more numerous than hotels are the guesthouses, where you can find lodging in modern villas and traditional homes, in town or in the peaceful natural surroundings just outside. Rental apartments and several hostels oriented toward younger visitors round out the offerings.
