全veti Naum Monastery


Just about everyone staying in Ohrid takes a trip to the monastery of Sveti Naum.
Sveti Naum is located on the southeastern shore of the lake almost 30 kilometres from Ohrid town and near the border with Albania. The area where the monastery is, belonged to Albania for a short period from 1912 until June 28, 1925.

You can easily get there, both by bus and by boat.
Several peacocks live on the grounds of the monastery built on a rock above the lake.

The actual early 10th-century Church of the Holy Archangels built by Sveti Naum is in fact buried beneath the present 16th-century church, which stands in the middle of the monastery courtyards.
The church has been destroyed during Ottoman rule and its remains were rediscovered only in 1955 when excavations were carried out.
The present church was enlarged in the 17th and 18th centuries.

This time I don't have a personal preference for my main photo.
I hesitated between this one and the pictures in WS3 and WS4.
