  • It's a small collection of icons of great value and some very old. It is located opposite the Church of ST Clement, which you can't miss, and you can take advantage of to visit both. Perhaps I am not the person most appropriate to say about this gallery because after visiting the icons of the Cathedral of Sofia (INCREDIBLE) I believe that my ability to wonder about the icons was a bit atrophied. Anyway go and enjoy.

  • Different periods in terms of useful to see the icons. The little church on the back wall are pictures tells the story of the Virgin Mary.

  • Very exciting gallery for people of art, people who respect the history of christian religion. I was really impressed of the lecture about methods of painting icons.

  • 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.
