WATER MUSEUM IN OHRID OPENS ON 8 DECEMBER



Culture.

Reconstruction works on a Neolithic pile-dwelling settlement near Gradiste are coming to an end and it is scheduled to open to public on 8th December, the Day of St. Kliment, Ohrid’s Patron. “This is one of the major projects funded by the Government of the Republic of Macedonia. This settlement is unique in the Balkans, and besides its archaeological values, it will be a tourist attraction. Besides a tour of the settlement, tourists will be offered an opportunity of diving and seeing Lake Ohrid underwater wildlife,” Director of the Directorate for Protection of Cultural Heritage Pasko Kuzman says.

The pile-dwelling settlement will have two accesses from land - one will be intended for tourists touring the settlement and artefacts, and another for divers who will teach visitors to dive and enable them to see the underwater beauties of the lake and the archaeological site assisted by experienced divers. Kuzman says besides being a uniquely reconstructed archaeological site, the settlement is also one of the rare projects that have pre-conceived commercial contents, and a unique water museum in a wider region.
