Lake Ohrid (Macedonian: Охридско Езеро), straddles the mountainous border between southwestern Macedonia and eastern Albania. It is one of Europe’s deepest and oldest lakes, preserving a unique aquatic ecosystem that is of worldwide importance, with more than 200 endemic species. The importance of the lake was further emphasized when it was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1979 and when, in 2010, NASA decided to name one of Titan’s lakes after Lake Ohrid. The towns situated at the lakeside are Pogradec in Albania, along with Ohrid and Struga in Macedonia.

Geography

Lake Ohrid is the deepest lake of the Balkans, with a maximum depth of 288 m (940 ft) and a mean depth of 155 m (508 ft). It covers an area of 358 km² (138 sq mi), containing an estimated 55.4 km³ of water. It is 30.4 km long by 14.8 km wide at its maximum extent with a shoreline length of 87.53 km, shared between Macedonia (56.02 km) and Albania (31.51 km). The Ohrid Lake is divided between Republic of Macedonia and Albania. Of the total surface area, 248 km2 belongs to Republic of Macedonia and 110 km2 belongs to Albania.

Origin

The Ohrid and Prespa Lakes belong to a group of Dessaret basins that originated from a geotectonic depression during the Pliocene epoch up to five million years ago on the western side of the Dinaric Alps. Worldwide, there are only a few lakes with similarly remote origins with Lake Baikal and Lake Tanganyika being the most famous. Most other, short-lived lakes have a life span of less than 100,000 years before they are eventually filled up with sediments. It is believed that in the case of Lake Ohrid this process was delayed by its great depth and small sediment input from its filtered spring inflows. Moreover the Ohrid-Korca graben to the south of the lake is still tectonically active and might compensate sedimentation by subduction. In contrast to Lake Ohrid, Lake Prespa is likely to have turned dry several times in its history, as a result of its karstic underground. In 2008, Macedonian media reported that international experts will be researching the lake in order to determine its age.

Hydrology

The lake drains an area of around 2600 km² and is fed primarily by underground springs on the eastern shore (about 50% of total inflow), with roughly 25% shares from rivers and direct precipitation. Over 20% of the lake’s water comes from nearby Lake Prespa, about 10 km (6.2 mi) to the southeast and at 150 m higher altitude than Lake Ohrid. The water leaves Lake Prespa trickling through underground watercourses in the karstic landscape, where it is joined by mountain range precipitation and eventually emerges in numerous springs along the eastern shore and below the water surface of Lake Ohrid. The water leaves Lake Ohrid by evaporation (~40%) and through its only outlet, the Black Drin River, which flows in a northerly direction into Albania and thus to the Adriatic Sea. The relatively dry, Mediterranean climate and the small drainage basin of 2600 km² (catchment/lake surface ratio of ~7) of Lake Ohrid results in a long hydraulic residence time scale of ~70 yr.

Physical and Geochemical Lake Properties

The water at the surface of Lake Ohrid moves predominantly in a counter-clockwise direction along the shore, as a result of wind forcing and earth rotation, similar to the Ekman-phenomenon known from oceans. In terms of vertical water exchange, convective mixing during winter cooling is the dominant process. However in an average winter only the top 150–200 meters of the lake are mixed, whereas the water below is stably stratified by salinity. The stability due to this salinity gradient allows complete convective mixing events only roughly once every 7 years.

Both in terms of nutrient concentration (4.5 μg L−1 of phosphorus), as well as biological parameters Lake Ohrid qualifies as oligotrophic. Thanks to this oligotrophy and the filtered spring inflows, the water is exceptionally clear with transparencies to a depth of as much as 22 meters (66 feet). Despite the lack in annual deep water exchange from complete overturn or plunging rivers, dissolved oxygen never drops below ~6 mg L−1.

Fauna

While Lake Ohrid is special as such, by far the most spectacular quality is its impressive endemism. Similar to Lake Baikal or Lake Tanganyika, Lake Ohrid harbors endemic species covering the whole food-chain, from phytoplankton and sestile algae (20 species; e.g., Cyclotella fottii), over plant species (2 species; e.g., Chara ohridana), zooplankton (5 species; e.g., Cyclops ochridanus), cyprinid fish (8 species; e.g., Pachychilon pictus), to predatory fish (two trout species; the Ohrid trout complex Salmo letnica, and “Belvica” Acantholingua ohridana) and finally its diverse endemic bottom fauna (176 species; e.g. Ochridagammarus solidus), with particularly large endemism among crustaceans, molluscs, sponges andplanarians. Whereas the endemic species list cited above is based on morphological and ecological characteristics, some recent applications of molecular genetic techniques underline the difference of the fauna from common European taxa, as well as the old age of the lake.

Quite remarkably, exotic species do not seem to be a major issue in Lake Ohrid, although they have been recorded in small populations for several decades or exist in nearby rivers or lakes. The reason lies very probably in the ideal adaptation of the endemic species to the specific conditions in the lake, such as low nutrient availability, good living conditions in greater depth thanks to high water transparency and oxygen content, as well as subaquatic spring inflows supplying cool and oxygen-rich water. In total, seven introduced fish species are known from the lake.

Despite the exceptionally high level of endemism in Lake Ohrid (for example, a third of the 21 native fish species and as much as 80% of its molluscan fauna is endemic), a significant number of non-endemic species is found in Lake Ohrid. This includes species, which are mobile (e.g., via water birds) or migratory, such as the European eel.

The lakeshore reed beds and wetlands provide critical habitat for hundreds of thousands of wintering water birds, including rare and threatened species such as the Dalmatian Pelican,Ferruginous Duck, Swan, Spotted Eagle, and Eastern Imperial Eagle.

Socio-Economy

There are three cities on the lake’s shores: Ohrid and Struga on the Macedonian side; Pogradec in Albania. There are also several fishing villages, although tourism is now a more significant part of their income. The catchment area of the lake has a population of around 170,000 people, with 131,000 people living directly at the lake shore (43,000 in Albania and 88,000 in Macedonia). The population in the catchment has increased greatly by 100,000 people in the last half century, putting the lake’s fragile ecosystem under pressure. The historic monuments, as well as the pristine lake environment make the area around Lake Ohrid a prime site for tourism. In the 1980s more than 200’000 national and international tourists went on a literal pilgrimage to the Macedonian lake side every year. During the Yugoslav crisis and particularly after the interethnic conflicts within Macedonia in 2001 international tourism collapsed but has been slowly recovering during the past years. Even though many of the above visitors are staying for a weekend only, tourism makes an important share of local economy (~1 visitor/inhabitant).

Human influence

Shore habitats are under particular pressure from human activities. Particular threats are the building of tourist facilities directly at the shore, destroying of reed belts to gain agricultural land and intense pollution close to the mouth of tributaries. Although the effects of these human impacts have not been evaluated in detail they are of great concern, as the shallow water sites are particularly rich in endemic bottom fauna and form important spawning grounds for several endemic fish species. Moreover reed belts have great importance for water birds.

Commercial fish yield, i.e. the two endemic trout species, has dropped significantly over the past decades, both in Macedonia and in Albania. The most probable reason is overfishing and possibly destruction of spawning grounds. Although there are regulations regarding fishing practice (e.g., minimal mesh size) and only a limited number of licensed fishermen, these rules are always not obeyed, as a result of the high market value of the endemic trout. As a reaction to the situation, fishing has been banned for the past two years, to help the fish population recover and to allow scientists collect further data. While most of the endemic fish species are non-migratory, the European eelspawns in the distant Sargasso Sea while its offspring return to the lake. Unfortunately, like in many European lakes, it is very unlikely today that eels can reach Lake Ohrid naturally and return to the Sargasso Sea, as a result of several hydropower dams on the Black Drin and the Drin River, both in Macedonia and Albania. As a result, eel found in Lake Ohrid are stocked populations.

Given the population growth over the past 50 years, a particular concern is the potential eutrophication of currently oligotrophic Lake Ohrid from increased pollution. Indeed, sediment cores show a ~3.5 fold increase in phosphorus concentration over the past century. On the one hand, shifts from endemic to common European species, which are better adapted to higher nutrient conditions, have already been observed close to polluted inflows. On the other hand, higher nutrient levels have reduced the water transparency, as well as the oxygen availability in the deep water and at the lake bottom, two properties which are requisite for the endemic flora and fauna. Still, the lake is in a comparably good state at the moment. However it may take more than a decade to see the effects of today’s pollution level in the lake, because of its long water residence time. Moreover it was shown that the negative effects from eutrophication would be significantly amplified by global warming. Although there is time to react, computer simulations indicate that at least a 50% reduction in phosphorus input must be reached to keep the deep water oxygenated for the next 50 years at predicted atmospheric warming. This aim could be reached by controlling household wastewater, which is by far the biggest phosphorus source at the moment. First steps in that direction have been taken by extending and improving the existing sewage system in Macedonia in the framework of a GEF (Global Environment Facility) program. The most important next task would be a solution for three remaining, severely polluted tributaries, one in Macedonia and two in Albania.

Namesakes

Lake Ohrid, is also the namesake of Ohrid Lacus a hydrocarbon lake on the Saturnian moon Titan. That lake is composed of liquid methane and ethane,[16] is located 71.8°N 221.9°W on Titan’s globe.

The Robevi House

 

It is a famous and historic building in Ohrid, Macedonia. It was built in its current state in 1863–1864 by Todor Petkov from a village Gari near Debar. Today the house is a protected cultural monument under the “Institute for protection of cultural monuments in Ohrid”.

The building of the first Robevi house was finished on the 15th of April 1827, as witnessed by the inscription in Greek on the marbled flagstone and the it is a traditional Ottoman Turkish house architecture. This famous Ohrid merchant family lived in the house for 35 years between 1861–1862 when a famous criminal from Ohrid Ustref Beg burnt it to the ground.

Two years later, between 1863–1864 the house was rebuilt. It was divided in two parts: left and right. Konstantin Robev lived in the left part of the house and his brother Atanas Robev in the right part. The main builder was Todor Petkov who built the house from scratch. The family lived in the newly built house until 1900 when they moved to Bitola and used the house as a summer residence.

From 1913 till 1919 in the time of the Balkan wars and the First World War, the house hosted Serbian soldiers. Some damages were found in the house after they left, part of the carvings were taken to Niš in Serbia. The house has been protected as a cultural-historic museum of the Macedonia since the Second World War ended. The last reconstruction of this marvelous building was made in the 1990s. Currently it serves as exposition space for the archaeological treasures of Macedonia on the first floor, the second is a memorial floor dedicated to the Robevi family and the third or the upper floor functions as a residence.

The house is a protected cultural monument consisting of 3 floors. Epigraphical monuments from Ohrid are placed on the ground part of the house including precious objects as the “Milokas” (found on the Via Egnatia) road, the two torsos of the goddess Isis etc. The archaeological objects from the ancient times and the medieval period are exhibited on the second and the third floor.

The upper part of the house serves as exhibition space for objects made by the Ohrid carving school, creations of famous artists from Ohrid and the county. In the eastern part of the house some objects from the Robevi family are exhibited.

The “torso of the goddess Isis” exhibited in the Robevi house is printed on the 10 denar bank note. The torso of Isis belongs to 2nd century BC and is one of the most important objects found on the territory of Macedonia

The Ancient theater of Ohrid

 

from the Hellenistic period is located in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. It was built in 200 BC and is the only Hellenistic – type theater in the country. As the other three in Scupi, Stobi and Heraklea Lynkestis are from Roman times. It is unclear how many people the original theater used to seat, as only the lower section still exists. The open theater has a perfect location. The two hills that surround it keep it protected from winds that could interfere with acoustics during performances.

During Roman times, the theater was also used for gladiator fights. However, since the theater was also a site of executions of Christians by the Romans, it rapidly turned to a highly disliked site by the locals. In fact, as a result of this dislike, the theater was abandoned and buried by the locals after the demise of the Roman Empire. Fortunately, this allowed for most of the structure to be well preserved, only to be uncovered accidentally in the 1980s. Namely, during construction work around some of the houses in the area, large stone blocks with carvings of the Greek god Dyonisius and the muses were showing up. That led archaeologists to believe that a Greek theater (Dyonisius and the muses were related to the performance arts) must have been located nearby.

Since the late 1980s, the theater is again a site of public performances, such as plays, concerts, operas, ballet performances. Recently, high-profile cultural performances such as those by the Bolshoi and José Carrerastake place each summer as part of the Ohrid Summer Festival.

Samuil’s Fortress

 

It is a fortress in the old town of Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. It was the capital of Macedonian Empire during the rule of Samuil in the middle-ages. Today, this historical monument is a major tourist attraction and was renovated in 2003.

According to recent excavations by Macedonian archaeologists, Samuil’s Fortress was alleged that this fortress was built on the place of an earlier fortification, dated to 4th century B.C., which was probably built by king Phillip II of Macedon.

Saint Clement and Panteleimon

 

The monastery is believed to have been built when Saint Clement arrived in Ohrid, at the request of Boris I of Bulgaria and restored an old church. Sources say that Saint Clement was not satisfied with the size of the church and therefore built a new one over it and assigned Saint Panteleimon as its patron saint.

Saint Clement used his newly created monastery as a liturgical building and a place for teaching his disciples his variation of the Glagolitic alphabet, known as the Cyrillic script. Clement personally built a crypt inside the monastery in which he was buried after his death in 916, his tomb still exists today.

In the 15th century, Ottoman Turks converted the monastery into a mosque but during the beginning of the 16th century allowed ruined churches and monasteries to be restored, therefore, so was Saint Clement’s monastery. The monastery was again ruined during the end of the 16th century or the beginning of the 17th century and yet another mosque, called Imaret Mosque, was erected by the Ottomans, this mosque still exists to this day.

Many archaeologists believe that Clement himself designed and constructed the monastery. Clement, along with Naum of Preslav would use the monastery as a basis for teaching the Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets to Christianised Slavs thus making it a university.

The monastery stands on a hill which is now known as Plaošnik overlooking Lake Ohrid. Clement built his monastery on a restored church and a Roman basilica of five parts (the remains of the basilicas can still be seen outside the monastery). Judging by the architectural style and design of the monastery, researchers say that Saint Clement intended for his building to be a literary school for disciples, thus it is believed to be the first and oldest discontinued university in Europe.

The exterior of the monastery contains a large number of finely detailed mosaics not far from a stone Baptismal font used to baptise his disciples.

Apart from the monastery’s many reconstructions during the Ottoman empire, it has recently undergone extensive reconstruction and excavation. Reconstruction started on December 8, 2000 and the physical church was fully reconstructed by August 10, 2002. Most of Saint Clement’s relics were returned to the church. A partially ruined bell tower was restored on the right side of the monastery and the floors of the interior of the church have been reconstructed with marble. Reconstruction was carried out by hand using materials used to build the original church in order to preserve the original spirituality of the monastery. Machines were only used to polish the interior during the reconstruction of the monastery. The first excavations of the monastery were carried out in 1943 by Prof. Dimche Koco. Excavations inside the monastery have revealed underground tunnels and crypts. Further excavations have been planned to uncover more remains under the monastery, including more ruins of the Roman basilicas that stood there (the pillars outside the monastery support the idea of more remains).

On October 10, 2007, a collection of approximately 2,383 Venetian coins was discovered by archaeologists while excavating the monastery. A prominent archaeologist of the Republic of Macedonian, Pasko Kuzman, stated that the coins are of special significance because they indicate that Ohrid and Venice were commercially linked.

The Church of St. Sophia

 

(Macedonian: Црква Света Софија, Crkva Sveta Sofija) is located in the city of Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. The church is one of the most important monuments of Macedonia, housing architecture and art from the Middle Ages.

The church was built during the First Bulgarian Empire, after the official conversion to Christianity. Some sources date the building of the church during the rule of Knyaz Boris I (852 – 889).

Originally a synod church of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church Later of the Archbishopric of Ohrid, it was subsequently converted into a mosque during the rule of the Ottoman Empire. The interior of the church has been preserved with frescoes from the 11th, 12th and 13th century. That represent some of the most significant achievements in Byzantine painting of the time. The main part of the church was built in the 11th century, while external additions were built by Archbishop Gregory II in the 14th century.

In November 2009, the Macedonian Orthodox Church introduced a new Coat of Arms with church of St. Sophia as a charge on the shield.

A detail from the church is depicted on the reverse of the Macedonian 1000 denars banknote, issued in 1996 and 2003.

The Monastery of Saint Naum

 

(Macedonian: Манастир „Свети Наум“) is an Eastern Orthodox monastery in the Republic of Macedonia, named after the medieval Saint Naum who founded it. It is situated along Lake Ohrid, 29 kilometres (18 mi) south of the city of Ohrid.

The monastery was established in the Bulgarian Empire in the year 905 by St Naum of Ohrid himself. St Naum is also buried in the church.

Since the 16th century a Greek school had functioned in the monastery. The area where the monastery of St Naum (Albanian: Shën Naum) lies belonged to Albania for a short period from 1912 until June 28, 1925, when Zog of Albania ceded it to Yugoslavia as a result of negotiations between Albania and Yugoslavia and as a gesture of goodwill.

The Lake Ohrid area, including St Naum, is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Macedonia.

Saint John the Theologian, Kaneo

 

(Macedonian: Свети Јован Канео, Latinic: Sveti Jovan Kaneo) The church was named after the old fishing village Kaneo. Saint John at Kaneo is a Macedonian Orthodox church. Church Kaneo is situated on the cliff over Kaneo Beach, overlooking Lake Ohrid in the city of Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. The church Kaneo is attributed to John the Theologian. The construction date of the church remains unknown but documents detailing the church property, suggests that it was built before the year 1447. Archaeologists believe that the church Kaneo was constructed some time before the rise of the Ottoman Empire, very likely in the 13th century. Restoration work in 1964 led to the discovery of frescoes in its dome. In addition, it is also believed that the church of the Holy Mother Of God Perivleptos was built around the same few years as Kaneo.

The church Kaneo was built into the shape of a cruciform with a rectangular base. The architect of the church is unknown, but it is believed that he was influenced by the architecture of Armenian churches. Reconstruction work was carried out on the church in the 14th century, shortly before the arrival of Ottoman Turks in Macedonia. A wooden iconostasis was constructed within the church and by the 20th century numerous saints along with the Virgin Mary have been portrayed on the apse. A fresco of Christ Pantocrator can be seen on the dome of the church. A fresco of Saint Clement of Ohrid (whose monastery, Saint Panteleimon, is located close to the church), accompanied by Saint Erasmus of Ohrid can also be seen on a wall of the church.

Museum on Water

 

An exceptional archaeological complex, which is one of a kind in the region. On the southern coast of Gradiste Peninsula, in the Bay of Bones, a pile-dwelling settlement has been erected. This pile settlement in the past was spreading at a total surface of 8.500 m2. Pile settlement – Bay of Bones is an authentic reconstruction of a part of the pile-dwelling settlement, dating back between 1200 and 700 BC.

A Roman military fortification (Gradiste) has been reconstructed on the hill above the Bay of Bones, simultaneously with constructing the pile-dwelling settlement and the Water Museum. The walls of the fortification that once had protected the Roman Empire from its enemies, are once again lifted up on the hill near Gradiste.

The Roman fortress is connected with the settlement in order tourists and visitors to be given an extraordinary opportunity to experience time travel, from prehistoric to ancient times and vice versa.

MACEDONIA’S MOST PRECIOUS JEWELS

Macedonia, deep in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, is simply a small country with extraordinary beauty. This ancient and biblical land is probably one of the last visited and least known countries in Europe. That in a way makes it even more mysterious and attractive. Finally, this beautiful land is now ready to be discovered. And without any doubt, Macedonia’s most precious jewels, shining one next to the other, are the City of Ohrid and the Lake Ohrid.

The town of Ohrid,  descendent of ancient Lichnidos has been in existence for more than 2500 years. Since the ancient times, here in the area of the town of Ohrid civilization, achievements have been changing with its ups and downs. The town of Ohrid, has survived all this and has been preserved with this name until today. The legend says that the founder of the ancient town in this area was the Phoenician Cadmo, who founded the dynasty together with the ancient Enchelians.

If the existence of Lichnidos had become settled in the myth, then undoubtedly one can say that during the whole ancient period, this town had been a strong source of this civilization. The testimony of that time is:

The Classical Theatre, which is considered to be built in the 4 th century B.C. and after more than two millenniums has been uncovered, reconstructed and used;

The Fortress which was named after Samuel – the very first Macedonian – Slave emperor from the 10th century proves that the town of Ohrid even in the ancient time was a fortified one.

Some Roman historians wrote about this as well. The Prince’s tombs from the 7th to the 3rd century B.C. from the Trebenishte region where the burial masks were discovered.

PRE HISTORICAL AND CLASSICAL MONUMENTS OF CULTURE

Neolithic and eneolithic period

 

ohrid gradiste history periodIn the history of the Ohrid, Macedonia, region there are several Neolithic settlements: Dolno Trnovo in Ohrid and Zlastrana in the village of Gorno Sredorece (Debarca). As well as the Kutlina site in the village of Velmej (Debarca) that dates back to the Eneolithic period. There are also several sites from the Bronze Age: Lakoceresko Gradiste, Koselsko Gradiste and Tumba near the village of Svinista. And also the recently discovered lake – dwelling settlement “Ploca Micov Grad” located near Gradiste peninsula, on the eastern shore of Lake Ohrid.

Excavations carried out in the three Neolithic settlements have shown the presence of the remains of buildings, graves and ceramics. On the surface of the sites Lakocersko Gradiste and Koselsko Gradiste fragments of ceramic pots as well as stone and bone tools were found.

Most probably the Neolithic sites now known in the Ohrid region date back from IV – III millenium BC.

The Iron Age period

 

ohrid mascExcavations are carried out near the village of Gorenci, around 9 km from Ohrid (Suva Cesma, Tri Celusti and Vrtulka). They have shown the presence of certain material, indicating that the site dated back from the late period of the Iron Age II. Going back chronologically through the history of Iron Age period in Macedonia, new cultural developments can be traced back to the VI and V century BC. This period is marked as the Iron Age III period. Or the period of formation of the Macedonian archaic style manifested by the “principal’s crypts”. These tombs were discovered in the necropolis “Trebenista” near village Gorenci. Another necropolis from the same period was discovered near the village Recica, northern of Ohrid.

In the archaeological excavations that started in 1918 and were carried out with interruptions until 1972 a total of 56 burial structures were discovered. The majority of them contained wealthy funeral artifacts.

During the VI century BC formation and presence of certain ethnic groups in the Balkans was already evident. In the Ohrid region, the Enhelians were mentioned. The most significant findings are the golden funeral masks contained in the rich “principal” crypts in Gorenci. The masks were made out of golden tin and they are subjects of a series of observations in the scientific world. According to some scientists, the characteristics of their style, i.e. the incrusted ornamental patterns, are characteristic for the Greek art from VI century BC. Others claim that these patterns can be related only to the Macedonian art.

Today the precious findings of the necropolis “Trebenista” beautify the exhibition stands of the museums in Sofia – Bulgaria and Belgrade – FR Yugoslavia.

Classical period

 

ohrid theaterFrom the time of Philip II of Macedonia entering in the region of Lychnidos, the cultural influences of the Greek-Macedonian world were more present. This notable culture left its mark in this territory and various artifacts have been found: from marble molds, through ceramic and bronze pots, to small pieces of jewelry made of gold, semiprecious gems and glass paste.

Recent archeological examinations have shown that the line starting from St. Erasmus through Gabavci, Paterica and Kozluk to Koselska Reka was an urban entity. This entity in archaeology is known as “Hermeleia”. The acropolis is located high in the hill of Gabavsko. Its southeast footage is the lower town, and the sacred and secular buildings are located on the eastern and western sides.

Two necropolises from ancient times were discovered near Ohrid. One of them is located in Trebenisko Kale. And the other was discovered on the site Crvenica near Prentov Most. On the ruins of the former a stronghold was found built in several different period s, as well as ceramic pots and 17 grave units. On the site near Crvenica, 143 tombs dating back to the Hellenic period and the early Middle Ages were found.

One Macedonian crypt was found in the area of Varosh, the old part of Ohrid City. Also on the locality Deboj, the central necropolis of Lychnidos and the medieval Ohrid.

There is another building that is usual for this period – the Roman theatre. It is located in Varos (the old part of Ohrid). It was built in accordance with the Greek and Roman type of theaters. The first findings of this monumental structure date from the beginning of the 20th century, with two relief plates depicting Dionysus with the Muses. Without this structure a town center in the classical period would have been inconceivable. The first archaeological probes were carried out during 1959 – 1960 period, when nine rows of seats in the theater were discovered. Some of the stone seats contain inscriptions of the names of the families that had subscriptions.

Early Christian period

 

ohrid basillicaA polyconched church from this period was discovered in the Lychnidos region. It is located north from the Monastery of St. Clement’s compound. Its monumentality, architecture and splendid mosaics distinct it from all discovered Early Christian period basilicas in the region of Ohrid. It is unknown to whom it was devoted.

This polyconched structure was reconstructed several times in the history. It was built in a form of double shell typical for the early Christian architecture. A similar church was excavated in the yard of Hadrian’s Library in Athens, Greece. Such structures were characteristic for the early Justinian period. It is possible that the shrine was the cathedral of the Lychnidos bishops.

The basilica “Studencista” is located outside the boundaries of the classical and medieval town. On the eastern slopes of Mount Petrinska. Analysis indicate that the shrine dates from the end of V and the beginning of VI century AD.

Similar structures were found in the old part of the town. There are even some indications that the church of St. Sofia was erected on the foundations of an early Christian church, because some traces of an older architecture were found. The discovery of an early Christian basilica, located in the immediate vicinity of the medieval church devoted to St. Erasmus, was also important. St. Erasmus was the first preacher of the Christian belief in this region. Apart from these, basilicas were discovered southeast from the Classical theater and eastwards from the Church of St. Bogorodica Perivlepta (St. Clement).

Today Ohrid is a modern city with more than 50 000 inhabitants, with great historical heritage, beautifull Ohrid Lake and good tourist capacities.

VisitOhrid will submit more articles about the history of the city in the future, because the history of this city is endless…
