This statue is a towering monument overlooking a small patch of greenery and next to a large television screen. It’s impressive and has religious and historical connections to The Monastery of Saint Naum.

The statue is nice, it looks friendly, I would like to have a miniature. It is located in the central square, can be used as a meeting point. Very close to a monitor showing stuff which I haven't understood yet.

This may simply be just a statue, but for anyone religious (term used loosely), it is an important piece of history not only for the people of Ohrid, but all of Macedonia and now also all those in the world who use the Cyrillic alphabet....More

Just a monument in the harbour. To say the true, it is nice, but noting special. The most beautiful of the monument is its location with its surroundings. So just take a break in the square, take an ice cream or a beer and enjoy.
