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.

The magnificent collection of religious icons on show in this gallery date from the middle of the 11th to the end of the 19th Century. All of them are vibrant and powerful and look like they were created yesterday, none of the photographs of them...More

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.

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.

The gallery (which has a 100 denar entrance fee) houses a small, but lovely collection of icons, most from Ohrid, but others from around the country. Tastefully displayed and, at least during my visit, not at all crowded. No pictures allowed.
