This fine art gallery is located on the most beautiful street in old town near the paper factory st. Nokoli and the museum. I highly recommend it, some truly interesting works.

Basically one room with icons, mainly from the church next door. The collection points out the importance of Ohrid as a cultural and spiritual centre since medieval times.

One of the finest collections of Byzantine icons in the world and very well set out. It contains an unusually large number of double sided icons. A small number of late icons (18th-19th century) make an interesting contrast to the ancient icons of exceptional quality....More

It's not a large collection of sacred icons, but it's pretty inclusive of the Ohrid area and includes many fine ancient icons from the many centuries of Orthodox Christianity in this sacred area.

Very exciting gallery for people of art, people who respect the history of christian religion. I was really impressed of the lecture about methods of painting icons.

I was speechless when I entered the Gallery. I recommend a guided tour, since the written information for every icon is not sufficient. Worth every penny!

The biggest surprise was icon old for one thousand years. You can really enjoy it in silence and prayer.

I've never seen such old icons before, the oldest ones are from XI century. It's a pity that you can't take photos. This place will be extremely interesting for orthodox christians.
