    We are little used in Europe from the West to see this type of icons. Very beautiful works. Not to be missed in this city.

    If you are a Christian and even Orthodox, will definitely be impressed. Spacious and bright, the Museum is an ideal space to be able to enjoy the real beauty of Church our images. Very good presentation!

    When the Gallery ' for sure I should write this comment for is the place itself, I said ' wife and Theologian olusumuz entering, due to the big idea and the time the money that we feel then you perish was itself a place. * input if I remember correctly they are very simple drawing and 200 dinars. prior to good icon if you have new gormuslugu (models bi Italy example) this is the kind of waste I would like to point out for you. the best excursions:)

  • 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.
