‘Ohrid - Two very different styles’


The photo shows a part of the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos. This church is located quite close to the Roman amphitheatre.
In the WS another photo shows a better view of the church but I chose this picture as my main photo because here you also see a street lamp in the shape of a house in the traditional building style of Ohrid.
I liked the combination of the two different styles.

All the street lamps in the old town have this shape.
Some may find it banal, but I found it charming.

One of the oldest churches in Ohrid is the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos.
It was built in 1295 and based on the Byzantine domed churches.
The frescoes in its interior also date from the 13th century.
Due to improper roof conservation the church has become damp inside. Rising damp and salts leeching out of the walls have severely affected the frescoes.
