Kurbinovo St.Georgi (George) Monastery (1191.), Prespa, Macedonia

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

In the area of Lake Prespa, the most interesting Christian Orthodox temple is the Church of St. Georgi (George) in the village of Kurbinovo (uphill, few kilometers from the lake). Frescoes in this church were painted in 1191. That was the time when Byzantine Empire ruled teritory of present Republic of Macedonia, the time after the reign of Tzar Samuil, the first Slavo-Macedonian Emperor, and the founder of the first medieval Slavo-Macedonian state.This is a very simple church by its shape and dimensions, yet very important from spiritual and cultural point of view.

Thanks a lot for your kind visit and very nice comment. This is the church of St. George from XII-century ... small single-nave basilica, which is famous with its fresco paintings

greetings from SERBIA
