  Statue of Saints Cyrill and Methodius
by agmoose02
 
 

This statue in the center of Ohrid, just off the lake features saints Cyrill and Methodius. These men were originally charged with spreading christianity to the Slavs and to help in accomplishing this created the gaglolitic alphabet (this is the alphabet utilized in the writings of St Naum and St Kliment) , which later evolved into the present day cyrillic alphabet. Not only were they the teachers of important missionaries such as St Naum and St Kliment, but they were also instrumental in the developement of orthodox slavic culture.

Directions: Main square facing the lake
