  about Saint Naum monastery

Saint Naum monastery is located only 2 kilometers near the border with Albania, on rocks and 28 km from Ohrid.
It was built by the monarch St. Naum of Ohrid, the student of St. Cyril and Methodius and cofounder of the Ohrid literature school.
The Byzantine church of the monastery is dedicated to the Holy Archangels Gabriel and Michael (there St. Naum was buried). The monastery has been renovated and enlarged during the 16th and 17th centuries. The wood-carved iconostasis and the icons date 18 century. In particular the icons are considered among the best in the Balkans.
Go inside and put your ear on his tomb, you can hear the sound of the water of lake Ohrid, beside you are 30 meters higher than the lake level.
Today there is hotel complex Saint Naum on the location. A curiosity: the Saint Naum monastery hosts a flock of peacocks.
