Trip Planner: Europe / Republic of North Macedonia / Southwestern Region / Ohrid / Monastery Saint Naum
Perched on the rocky shoreline of Lake Ohrid right next to the Albanian border, Monastery Saint Naum stands as one of the oldest complexes of its kind in the region. Originally constructed in the 10th century, the monastery has served several purposes during its history. Visit the complex and admire its wealth of religious artwork within, including several notable 18th-century wooden icons. You'll find a wide array of both Slavic and Greek frescoes adorning the walls as well. Be sure to stop by the grave of Saint Naum himself; it's rumored that you can still hear his heartbeat through the stone. PutMonastery Saint Naum into our Ohrid trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

Don't order the lemonade in the restaurant, they brought it to me full of flies (pic included), which wasn't the best start to a meal I've had... the food was good, but I couldn't get away from the thought of the lack of hygiene, I was slightly confused as to if they didn't notice or didn't care, either is pretty awful... however our waiter was a lovely lovely man, and the place is obviously gorgeous.
Great magical place! You can meet even peacocks in the area. This is the first monastery I’ve visited where I saw peacocks Statue of St Naum is new from the real “alive” tree with roots inside. You should visit all churches in area. It’s amazing to walk around through rivers, forest with dragonflies and singing of birds.
