Photographer's Note

Sveti Naum (Macedonian: Свети Наум; English: St Naum) is a town in the Republic of Macedonia, named after the medieval Saint Naum. It is situated along Lake Ohrid, 29 km south of the city of Ohrid near the Albanian border. The town gets its name from the saint who founded the famous monastery situated in the town. The monastery was established in the year 905 by St Naum of Ohrid himself. St Naum is also buried in the church.

Due to the beautiful setting, the monastery is among the most popular destinations in the Republic of Macedonia. There is a hotel, and several restaurants operating in warmer days, from early spring until late autumn.
