Monuments - North Macedonia
Sveti Naum Monastery is a beautiful and imposing sight, which is located on a cliff near the Albanian border (29km south of Ohrid). St Naum was a contemporary of St Kliment and their monastery was established as an educational center. The iconostasis of the church dates to 1711 and its Byzantine-style frescoes were created in the 19th century. Moreover, visitors can swim around Lake Ohrid, admire the view from the monastery walls or walk in the garden which surrounds the core of the complex and has fountains, roses and peacocks. Boat trips to the Springs of St Naum are also worthwhile.
