Monuments of Saints Cyril and Methodius, Ohrid

3.0
#15 of 22 in Things to do in Ohrid
The modern Monuments of Saints Cyril and Methodius stand in a small garden at the beginning of a walkway that stretches along the lake. Dedicated to the two 9th-century Greek brothers and Christian missionaries who brought literacy to the Slavic people, the monument depicts one sitting and the other standing, both leaning over an open book. The brothers developed the Glagolitic alphabet, the first used to write down the Old Church Slavonic language. Because of their major influence on pagan Slav migrants in Macedonia and elsewhere in the Balkans, they were nicknamed "Apostles to the Slavs."  Put Monuments of Saints Cyril and Methodius into our Ohrid itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Ohrid.

    It is a statue stands in the square in the Centre of town on the shore of the Ohrid Lake. This is a picture of people standing behind the seated statue of St. Cyril and St. Methodius, which I don't know either, but an open book. In the same square is the statue of St. Naum.
