i am protesting in name of Ohrid the Slavic Jerusalem, and i'll skip all my stories about, so i wouldnt legalize all that decadence that is flushed there, in enough quantity that only holy thing that pretends to survive is the fortress, tho even there one can find how materialism is bursting from some side!

our most visited tourist attraction has become more like fashion-week after-party place, steeling all that spirituality and calmness that this city has been accumulating through the last 30 centuries, tho this consumerist mood cant kill the old spirit of Ohrid coz there is stil active prayer ropes like in the times of Saint Clement and Naum [1] which vibes are stopping even billionaires that have had plans to make Balkan Monte Carlo here specially coz they've rushing to plant their hindu-mixer right next to our most famous monastery in Ohrid [2]

nothing is accidently, but all Ohrid colors can open the heart, altho all that junk-food and fast-life will close it instantly in same time, its like deja-vu of some early passages to paradise when many hermits were occupying all those cave churches above the lake [3]

when Bitola girls promote Ohrid pearls
Light shines Antiquity

During the extensive work on systematic archaeological excavations and restoration of the Samoil Fortress in Ohrid, beside the North Wall, we discovered a number of graves and tombs with different structures that belonged to people in antique Lichnidos, todayGÇÖs Ohrid. The chronological span of those funerals was 5th B.C. to 5th A.D.
http://www.pothos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1819


The Lake of Ohrid, the ancient Lacus Lychnitis, whose blue and exceedingly transparent waters in remote antiquity gave to the lake its ancient name; it was still called so occasionally in the Middle Ages. It was located along the Via Egnatia, which connected the Adriatic port Dyrrachion (present-day Durrës) with Byzantium. According to recent excavations by Macedonian archaeologists it was a town way back at the time of king Phillip II of Macedon, they allege that Samuil's Fortress was built on the place of an earlier fortification, dated to 4th century B.C. Archaeological excavations (e.g., the Polyconch Basilica from 5th century) prove early adaptation of Christianity in the area. Bishops from Lychnidos participated in multiple ecumenical councils.

The name Ohrid first appeared in 879. Between 990 and 1015, Ohrid was the capital and stronghold of the Samoil's Empire. From 990 to 1018 Ohrid was also the seat of the Ohrid Patriarchate. After the Byzantine conquest of the city in 1018, the Ohrid Patriarchate was downgraded to an Archbishopric and placed under the authority of the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople.

The higher clergy after 1018 was almost invariably greek, including during the period of Ottoman domination, until the abolition of the archbishopric in 1767. At the beginning of the 16th century the archbishopric reached its peak subordinating the Sofia, Vidin, Vlach and Moldavian eparchies, part of the former Pech Patriarchate (including Pech itself), and even the Orthodox districts of Italy (Apulia, Calabria and Sicily), Venice and Dalmatia.
As an episcopal city, Ohrid was an important cultural center. Almost all surviving churches were built by the Byzantines and by the Macedonians, the rest of them date back to the short time of Serbian rule during the late Middle Ages.

Ohrid is credited as being the likely birthplace of the Cyrillic alphabet, which was most probably created by St. Clement of Ohrid that further reformed the Glagolic alphabet created in turn by the brothers Saints Cyril and Methodius.

Bohemond and his Norman army took the city in 1083. In the 13th and 14th century the city changed hands between the Despotate of Epirus, the Samoil's, the Byzantine and the Serbian Empires. At the end of the 14th century it was conquered by the Ottomans and remained under them until 1912. The Christian population declined during the first centuries of Ottoman rule. In 1664 there were only 142 Christian houses. The situation improved in the 18th century when Ohrid emerged as an important trade center on a major trade route. At the end of this century it had around 5 thousands inhabitants. Towards the end of the 18th century and in the early part of the 19th century, Ohrid region, like other parts of European Turkey, was a hotbed of unrest. Semi-independent feudal lords such as Mahmud Pasha Bushatliya and Djeladin Beg controlled Ohrid and openly defied the central government by not submitting taxes and by using tax money to bolster their own private armies. By the end of 19th century Ohrid had 2409 houses with 11.900 inhabitants out of which 45% were Muslim while the rest was mainly Orthodox Christian. Before 1912, Ohrid (Ohri) was a township center bounded to Monastir sanjak in Monastir province (present-day Bitola).

Ecclesiastical history

Its first known bishop was Zosimus (c. 344). In the sixth century it was destroyed by an earthquake (Procopius, Historia Arcana, xv), but was rebuilt by Emperor Justinian (527-565). The new city was made the capital of the prefecture, or department, of Illyricum, and for the sake of political convenience it was made also the ecclesiastical capital of the Illyrian or southern Danubian parts of the empire (southern Hungary, Bosnia, Serbia, Transylvania, Moldavia, Wallachia). Justinian was unable to obtain immediately for this step a satisfactory approbation from Pope Agapetus or Pope Silverius. The Emperor's act, besides being a usurpation of ecclesiastical authority, was a detriment to the ancient rights of Thessalonica as representative of the Apostolic See in the Illyrian regions. Nevertheless, the new diocese claimed, and obtained in fact, the privilege of autocephalia, or ecclesiastical independence, and through its long and chequered history retained, or struggled to retain, this character. Pope Vigilius, under pressure from Emperor Justinian, recognized the exercise of patriarchal rights by the Metropolitan of Justiniana Prima within the broad limits of its civil territory, but Gregory the Great treated him as no less subject than other Illyrian bishops to the Apostolic See (Duchesne, op. cit., 233-237).

The inroads of the Avars and Slavs in the seventh century brought about the ruin of this ancient centre of religion and civilization, and for two centuries its metropolitan character was in abeyance.
after it was made the capital of Macedonia during the rule of Samuil and profited by the tenth-century conquests of its warlike rulers so that it became the Metropolitan of several Byzantine dioceses in the newly conquered territories in the wider region of Macedonia , Thessaly, and Thrace. Bulgaria fell unavoidably within the range of the Photian schism, and so, from the end of the ninth century, the diocese of Ohrid was lost to Western and papal influences.

The overthrow of the Samoil's empire in 1018 by Byzantine Emperor Basil II recovered Ohrid . It became a seat of the Archbishopric of Ohrid. In 1053 the Metropolitan Leo of Ohrid signed with Michael Caerularius the latter's circular letter to John of Trani (Apulia in Italy) against the Latin Church. Theophylactus of Ohrid (1078) was one of the most famous of the medieval Byzantine exegetes; in his correspondence (Ep., 27) he maintains the traditional independence of the Diocese of Ohrid. The Bishop of Constantinople, he says, has no right of ordination in Macedonia, whose bishop is independent. In reality Ohrid was during this period seldom in communion with either Constantinople or Rome. Towards the latter see, however, its sentiments were less than friendly, for in the fourteenth century we find the metropolitan Anthimus of Ohrid writing against the procession of the Holy Spirit from the Father and the Son. Yet Latin missionaries appear in Ohrid in the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries, mostly Franciscan monks, to whom the preservation of the Roman obedience in these regions is largely owing. In the thirteenth century, the noted judge Demetrios was archbishop of Ohrid.
Pursuant to Archbishop Arsenius II's petition, the Ecumenical Patriarch Samuel I had the see finally abolished as an autocephalous unit in January 1767 by an order of the Ottoman Sultan Mustapha III. At the height of its authority, Ohrid could count as subject to its authority ten metropolitan and six episcopal dioceses.

There is a legend supported by observations by Ottoman traveller from 15th century, Evlia Celebia that there were 365 chapels within the town boundaries, one for every day of the year. Today this number is significantly smaller. However during the medieval times, Ohrid was called Slavic Jerusalem.

Situated on the shores of Lake Ohrid, the town of Ohrid is one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. Built mainly between the 7th and 19th centuries, it has the oldest Slav monastery (St Pantelejmon) and more than 800 Byzantine-style icons dating from the 11th to the end of the 14th century. After those of the Tretiakov Gallery in Moscow, this is considered to be the most important collection of icons in the world

http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/99



http://www.build.mk/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=617 [1]

The oldest decorative plastic known of today made of wood is the sculpture St. Clement of Ohrid at the church St. Clement of Ohrid towards the end of the 13th century, the doors in the alter-screens of the monastery Andras (Holy Virgin and Archbishop Gavril), the hanging lamps of the church St. Nikolas, Varos, near Prilep, the sanctuary doors of the church St. Nikolas Bolnicki in Ohrid. The oldest wooden iconostasis is in the church Mali St. Vraci in Ohrid. [1]

The oldest preserved wood iconostasis in Macedonia can be found in the church of St. Mali Sveti Vraci in Ohrid known as Church Sts. Kuzman and Damjan. It is not known when it was built but here you can see a beautiful iconostasis dating back to 1352. Two columns from this iconostas carved in wood can be seen today in the house of the Robevci family in Ohrid. Above the iconostas there is a cross depicting the crucifixion of Jesus Christ which was probably created in the 17th century. [2]

The magnificent wood carved door from St.Nicholas of the Hospitals from the 14th century housed in the Archaeological-Historical Museum in Sophia, comprised of 16 panels is a rare artifact, and has been an object of scholarly polemical analysis for many decades. [3]

It is normal to suppose that decorative sculpture was complementary to fresco-painting and an integral part of the architectural arrangements and the architectural conception. The oldest specimens of decorative sculpture in Macedonia are the wood carvings on the altar screen in the church of St. Sophia in Ohrid. After the Ottoman conquest, the influence of Middle Eastern elements in the Macedonian wood carving became much stronger. The shallow and flat arabesque style of carving dominating until the 17th century began to be replaced by more intricate styles of carving. In the monasteries of Slepche, Treskavec, Zrze, Varosh (near Prilep) and in the Monastery of the Most Holy Virgin of Kichevo, a number of works by Macedonian wood-carvers have been preserved. They reveal the characteristics of the Slepche-Prilep wood-carver's school: shallow and flat carving and rich geometrically interwoven floral and animal motifs.

Wood carving in Macedonia in the 13th century continued its development with new vigor and was enriched by new elements. The members of the Miyak wood-carver's school introduced the human figure in their artistic works and integrated it within the ornamental whole in an amazing way. The art of wood carving was not confined to churches and monasteries only: wood-carvers' tayfi (groups) began to decorate mosques, as well as sarays (mansions) and houses of wealthy merchants. In 1814, Petre Filipovski's "tayfas" from the village of Gari made the Great Iconostasis, kept in the National Library in Belgrade until World War II when it was destroyed by bombing. Petre Filipovski "Garka", his brother Marko, and Makarie Frchkovski from Galichnik worked on the iconostasis in the Church of the Holy Savior in Skopje from 1824 to 1829-an iconostasis ten meters long and six meters high . Some of the characters in the Biblical scenes are depicted dressed in Galichnik folk costumes. Art historians are unanimous that the value of this masterpiece lies in the softness of its lines, its arrangement of the forms, its stylization and its baroque playfulness. In the period over 1830 to 1840, the famous master wood-carvers Petre Filipovski and Makarie Frchkovski carved the iconostasis in the Monastery of St. John Bigorski. They left behind self-portraits among the scenes of this iconostasis and again on the iconostasis in the Church of the Holy Savior. The iconostasis in St. John Bigorski is a grandiose example of Macedonian wood carving, divided into six horizontal squares abounding in floral and animal ornaments.

this Poem was inspired by the Ohrid Lake but from Struga perspective although written in Moscow [1]

and about the top post resignation from the nowadays decadence I'll add that even the old core of the city cant escape this mood, simply in times of spiritual blindness what else is left around to enjoy except consumerism 

maybe only way to dwell there through the time, and reach some peacefulness, is to disconnect yourself from all the technology while singing some etno vibe 

Ohrid is a town-museum and a cultural treasury of Macedonia. It has often been referred to as “Balkan Jerusalem”. Situated on the shore of the lake, it abounds in natural and spiritual beauties.

The antique name of the town is Lychnidos. It became known for the work of St. Clement and Naum, the disciples of the first Slavic educators and enlighteners St. Cyril and Methodius, they were the founders of the famous “Ohrid Literary School” which was a highly developed ecclesiastic, educational and literary centre, and among the first in Europe.

The town of Ohrid with its lake, its natural beauties, and its historical and cultural heritage is a true pearl of the Republic of Macedonia and enjoys the protection of UNESCO. The unique flora and fauna of the lake make it one of the largest biological reser­vats in Europe and pose a rare curiosity for explorers, who have named the lake "a fresh-water sea". It covers an area of358 km and the greatest depth measured in it is 228.7 m. Its crystal clear water provides an extraordinary translucency of 21.5 m. Some of the species which live in the lake are relics of the ancient plant and animal life which used to thrive throughout Euro-Asia, but today can be found only in the Tiberius Lake in the Near East and the Lake Baikal in Siberia. The fish life in the lake, with its 17 distinct species, is truly amazing. The best known are the two kinds of endemic Ohrid trout, Letnica and Belvica (Salmothymus ohridanus), also the Eel which can reach up to 1.5 m in length. These fish are a real challenge to anglers and a treat for gastronomes, especially for those who know how to pre­pare the trout in the famous "Ohrid way".

early in 70s the old fisherman settlements have become hedonistic hot spots, among whom Lagadin with its longest 300m beach on the Ohrid lake was the elite one (for our standards, tho beach is just a beach) , yet watch closely the video this shore is stil rural enough so it could welcome any guest even those with calmed hearts, but who can tell whats ahead [1]

  
 
Lagadin is an small tourist village with peaceful life and clean beaches. 
Ikar Hut is a new interactive concept where the guests them selves can participate in creative workshops, gardening, or diverse outdoor adventures and activities.
 You'll never be bored with us. If you are willing to meet the lake deeper in its crystal clear waters, or hike up to the top of the mountains around, you are more then welcome to join us [1] if u stil wonder how, just ask for the mayоr [2]

hedonism is just another dope walk in this world full of empty promises, yes u can flash-it for a while til u burnout, after go find ur peace, funny even the name of our elite beach here point this i.e. LAGA which in macedonian means LIE plus with little g on din there u have it g-din an macedonian title for Mr. - all in all an 'Lord of the Lie' even the song on the last returnable clip suggest this through our local anti-dope hymn [1][2][3] hm is there any place there which is free of dope&bass today

on other hand now even Struga, altho as always more conservative than Ohrid coz the large muslim community around, is pushing to become fashionable epicenter [1] tho since 90's our local miss bikini is held there, when btw we are striping down all the spiritual calmness from the centuries in one bite, that after we tend to share it with rest of the world [2] i know its pretty tempting to be sinfully lusty in holy place like Ohrid from time to time having few bites from the cake [3] at least it would be artistic if there were more candles beneath the gravel castles or balancing stones

good reason why migrants avoid and tourists adore us

Turns out, Macedonia's the cheapest game in town with a price index of 47, while Bulgaria follows close behind with 48 and Albania closes out the top three with 50. In fact, a whopping seven of the 10 cheapest European countries are located on the Balkan peninsula [1]

Cheap food, rooms, transport, medicine, just name it ... all in all Afordable Life around Expensive Nature

from all of this offered as cheap, maybe most practical way for spending time here is combining hedonism with medicine, almost local way for all-inclusive holiday,   attractive option mostly for the middle class tourists who cant afford free shiny teeth in their own country, and altho dental tourism is booming here, ill suggest > try some spa anti-rheumatics for fist full of denars ~ today still 60 for 1 euro ...

here we call the spas like in whole slavic realm an Banya's [1] and soon maybe there will be more and more with fancy signs [2] yet we have let off the most famous one that we could afford it somehow [3] stil we are close to our relatives and neighbors by interior creativity [4] but far from their advertising [5] til recently rhythm less attractive for most of our locals except our tourists > to box themselves in healing hot vibe, which was recently stimulated instantly when G-Boy from government started to subsidy Retiery-Spa-Weekends > so now also u could feel at least younger except relaxed while u'l be resting ur bones in one of our hot spring centers ~ which are just one step behind to become renowned one, hm they lack only romantic lighting and organic mood to come close to the top [1] sure more and more terracotta chairs and plenty of ceramoplastics for which this place was famous as in antiquity so as in ottoman times when hot spring pools or later hamams sprout like mushrooms, now museum relics like the Chifte and Daut Pashin hammam in Skopye - or Deboy hammam in Bitola,  i.e. the roman baths in Stoby [2] or Tiveriopol [3] one of the oldest termo-balneums in balkans


Hot Springs Healing Time  ...



... lacking only hostel spa creativity around

There are, in total, 64 known thermo-mineral sources, each with its own special characteristics and varying water temperatures. Although not many in number, the thermal springs in Macedonia are distinctive by their healing value, due its diverse Socio economic geography; there are 489 geological composition and continual tectonic processes over the past, they abound with the elements: sulfur, phosphorus, iodine, bromine, etc., a characteristic which makes them among the most famous in Europe. Also temperature of the thermal waters differs, depending on the location and geothermal field in question. Highest is the temperature of the water in Bansko Spa (73ºC), then in Banja – Kocani (55ºC), Kezovica Spa (54ºC), Katlanovo Spa (40.5ºC), Debar Spa (38.6ºC), Negorci Spa (38ºC), Kumanovo Spa (31ºC), etc
The use of thermal waters for medical purposes in the Republic of Macedonia has been known since ancient times. The traces of the material culture suggest that these healing springs were especially cherished during the Roman Empire. Romans used to build luxury baths for public and private uses. After the decline during the medieval times, their revival came during the long Turkish occupation, again with the establishment of numerous public and private baths [1]
Number of beds in macedonian spas: 1. Katlanovo Spa 470, 2. Debar Spa 282, 3. Negorci Spa 260, 4. Bansko Spa 160, 5. Kumanovo Spa 72, 6. Kocani Spa (Banja) 130, 7. Kezovica Spa 105, 8. Kosovrasti Spa 100 ~ Total 1.579 [3]

this ruin above is probably another antique bath-house, rated as roman tho i think that is from Samuels time simply lacks extra brick&tile in the walls as is case with all the other excavations there, maybe in early antiquity this was part of some spa complex and in later antiquity it was used as water reservoir (as is recognized now by the archaeologists) hm probably cisterns back then were built even with statues inside (so the gathered water could be blessed instantly) anyway this structure is located on our island called Big Town [1] @ our beautiful PrLa piece which our neighbors left for us after the last balkan wars, now officially the one and only watery crown in republic of Macedonia, tho there are many in geographical Macedonia, but sure the best and purest one from all ~ with enough untouched prehistoric mood enriched by extra biodiversity, more known by its snakes, bats and birds than its mushrooms, plants and trees like the wild Foya now regularly bleached by pelican poo making them an wooden pearls in this crown ... tho this 'one&only' perception rule, counts for all of our nature, and not just coz Macedonia is part of the Mediterranean basin biodiversity hotspot, but coz scientists say its the third richest biodiversity hotspot in the world ... hm i'm mesmerized by this statement and if its true then this island [2] should be among the top ten around

 

another good puzzle along this man-made Spa talk is the natural diagonal at this place, pointing toward the shores of the Prespa Lake mostly stuffed with healing mud and sand, plus extra amount of algae above and flora below, its like fairy place and unlike Ohrid stil unburdened from extra amounts of concrete, but unluckily buzzed by tons of pesticides, hope our government will find courage to stop this mad fiasco of all those prespa apple orchards which nowadays are treated from 15 to 20 times annually, yep healing mud with layer of creamy agro-chemicals, but having plenty birds and fish on and in the lake is kind of comfort like natural compass which points that this water and its shores are stil useful, now also companied by the most urbanized beaches in the country [3]

~

and despite the fact that Prespa had the best healing-mud potential here, as always all the buzz on this matter was reserved for the Doyran Lake ~ our smallest natural lake, place surrounded by unique stories and facts like the one that here is the only cathedral Church dedicated to Saint Iliya [1] our national patron [2] but also place famous by its predominant mediterranean clime ~ reason why here we produce most of our exotic and tropical fruits like Kaki, Lemons, Olives, Kiwi, Pomegranate etc. [3]  

http://gbtimes.com/travel/balkan-pearl-lake-dojran

The Mud - the Doiran mud is mending. Its specifically beneficial in healing of the muscles and bones.This is very usual site on Dojran shores. People cover themselves with mud and bake on the sun. They believe in its healing powers.The Algae - It's good for healing sinusitis. The algae that is being produced in the lake can take care of any sinusitis inflammation you have.making it the third largest lake partially in the Republic of Macedonia after Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa.The lake was on the southern line of the Macedonian front during World War I, and its southern shore became the site of the various Battles of Doiran between allied troops and Bulgarian troops.
