COLUMBIA, OXFORD AND CAMBRIDGE WITH PAVILLIONS AT PLAOSNIK



Culture.

The University of St. Kliment, which should be restored at Plaosnik in Ohrid, will get its pavillions of world renowned universities such as Columbia, Oxford and Cambridge by the end of 2009, Director of the Directorate for Protection of Cultural Heritage Pasko Kuzman said.

"The idea is that these large university centres get a kind of their branches, pavillions, rooms where their professors, scholars, and why not students, will stay, work and make research. We will be especially interested in those we can attract in terms of exloring our history, culture and tradition. It means that we want to make such pleasant areas within the restored university where these people can feel good, and on the other hand, we will increase the importance of their respective universities, Kuzman said, adding that they have already had talks with Columbia University on this topic and they have agreed.

Archaeological excavations at Plaosnik, that were expected to find remains of monastery dormitories or of the university complex, started last spring. After all excavations are completed, construction of the complex, a certain reminiscence of the 9th and 10th century university where about 3500 students of Kliment and Naum became literate, will start. The basic function, according to Kuzman's initial idea, is to set cultural, scientific centres, galleries of icons in the newly restored university, and a library with a large literary stock and a collection of preserved old manuscripts would be established.


MD: Good initiative, the government will invest about 6 million euros in this project.
