Having the opportunity to see such beautiful medieval orthodox upclose it was quite moving. Just a couple of pieces, but greatly valued. Sadly you can't take pictures inside but I stole some snapshots.

I did not notice this Gallery when I visited the church located next to it. It has 2 floors of exhibits with the icons on the Ground Floor. The staff smiled when they noticed me not walking on the red carpet, but outside the rope and closer to the icons.

Most of the icons came from the church next door, the Mother of God Perivlepta plus other local churches.

The displays at the Lower Level are not as colorful as those of the icon. They are also not original per my guide inside this Gallery.

The Icon Museum is adjacent to the Church of the Holy Mother of God Peribleptos. Entry is separate and costs MKD 100. I would recommend a short visit here even if you are not particularly interested in medieval art, as it is a very fine collection. Icons are arranged in chronological order and very well displayed in two rooms.

Less than 30 high-quality icons starting from 11th century. Very well preserved/restored. Nice atmosphere while not too friendly staff. Major saints are Clement of Ohrid and Saint Naum, you can see how the details of their outlook vary in time.

Wonderful icons and other objects from the 11-18th c. Go early so as to avoid the hordes of tourists.

We spent a little time listening to a talk about the origin of the icons and a demo of how they're made. By about half way thru, I was ready to leave. If you love religious icons, go. Otherwise, spend your time elsewhere.

Nice to visit, If you are orthodox, you will like it. I do not recommend for the people, who are atheist.
