ST. NAUM MONASTERY

Ljubaništa.

Boasting some of the most extraordinary frescos and icon paintings in North Macedonia and dating from 905AD, the beautiful monastery complex of St. Naum lies some 30km south of Ohrid close to the Albanian border. Complete with a fine island restaurant, gift shops, boat tours and peacocks running wild in the gardens, the original monastery was founded by St. Naum (c.830-910), a disciple of Sts. Cyril and Methodius and one of the seven Apostles of the First Bulgarian Empire.
