Photographer's Note

Located in Ohrid's old town,Plaosnik is an utterly unique phenomenon;it was recently reconstructed,with loving attention to detail,precisely in the style of a Byzantine church, right down to the red bricks and mortar.
An early Christian sacral building dating from the 5th century was discovered here, built over the remains of an older antique building whose cistern was found in the atrium of the newly built temple.
Today,Plaosnik is one of the most exhilating Byzantine-style churches in Macedonia.Its flor is covered with mosaics of twenty wave-shaped tassel interpesed with the figures of flowers,birds and animals.The very fact of its reconstruction is evidence of the strong affection Macedonians still feel for their Byzantine heritage.
