The impressive early Christian mosaics at the Episcopal Basilica, dating from the 4th and 5th centuries. Peacocks are a common motif in early Christian religious art. There is a catwalk constructed with an overlooking terrace, but all entry doors to the mosaics are blocked with mesh wire to protect them. Taken late afternoon. The park closes at 4 pm and entry is 120 denar (2 euro). The last bus back to Kavadarci is at 4:15 pm. It stops beside the main highway overpass and a ticket is 80 denar. The taxi I caught to get to Stobi was 550 denar.

The downwards point of view shows these beautiful mosaics to great effect. Much aided by the excellent light management. The detail is superb.

Cool! I like these motifs from early Christian period. It so cute idea and these peacocks remind me some Arabian, Persian or Ottoman topics from the past.
Very nice composition as a result of so clever point of view.

Looking downwards. It pays off some times. Fabulous mosaics, that. Great that you could get as high above the ground; was there a dome above with a balcony? Exelent light and clarity.

very attractive mosaic, great focus on the detail.
The central part seems quite recently made though doesn't it?
There is so much to see and do on the Balkan Peninsula and it is so completely new to me, Macedonia being probably the most foreign for me.
I like very much your reportage,
