SIGHTSEEING

The St. St. Peter and Pavel Church is a three-nave church with two aisles, a pseudo-basilica with a narthex and open-air gallery to the south. It was built in 1835. In 1926 the church was reconstructed – a bell tower was added to the main building. The iconostasis of the church, which has three entrances, is exceptionally valuable. The royal portals are decorated with a tracery, finely gold-plated and partially coloured carving, which was made by masters of the Debar school.

The Assumption of the Most Holy Virgin Mary Church was built in 1684. It has been demolished twice – once during the Ottoman invasions (reconstructed in XVIII-XIX century) and a second time during the Balkan war 1912-13 (restored in 1915-16). The church collapsed in 1980 but was restored five years later – in 1985. The Church is not active. Four regal icons and a stone icon with a donor’s inscription dating back to the first half of the XIX century were preserved from that church.
