Indeed I came to Ohrid in 1945 for the frescoes? Our Renaissance is completely unknown to the west, which for a long time did not understand the Slavic contribution to contemporary painting?

I have visited the churches in Ohrid: there are around thirty of them. They provide unique proof that between Byzantine ecclesiastical art, Ravenna and Sicily, on the one hand, and the Italian Renaissance, on the other, there was no void. Ohrid is a notable bridge in European art?
