  • Before the reconstruction it was a museum of Orthodox icons. After reconstruction with support from EU funds, it became a museum of Christian art. They came last year but it was still closed. Buying entrance tickets wished the employee a pleasant appetite as he ate appetizing and fragrant figs. Thanking the cashier offered all three remaining fruits in the bag to us, saying that he tore them today. It wasn't just the reception that struck us. The exhibition is also made with great love. And there's something to see. Early icons date back to the 14th century! There is an amazing collection of old books and coins! And, of course, the figs were the freshest)
