TIMES REVIVE AT THE BAY OF BONES



Culture.

Ohrid is to be enriched with another cultural and historical landmark as well as with a tourist attraction - Museum on Water - an exceptional archaeological complex, which is one of a kind in the region.

On the southern coast of Gradiste Peninsula in the Bay of Bones, a pile-dwelling settlement has been erected, which in the past was spreading at a total surface of 8.500 m2. It is an authentic reconstruction of a part of the pile-dwelling settlement, dating back between 1200 and 700 BC.

A Roman military fortification (Gradiste) has been reconstructed on the hill above the Bay of Bones simultaneously with constructing the pile-dwelling settlement and the Water Museum. The walls of the fortification that once had protected the Roman Empire from its enemies, are once again lifted up on the hill near Gradiste.

The Roman fortress is connected with the settlement in order tourists and visitors to be given an extraordinary opportunity to experience time travel, from prehistoric to ancient times and vice versa.



The reconstruction of these two facilities was carried out under a project financed by the Government i.e. the Culture Ministry. Even on the onset of the construction works, the site was visited by Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski who said the Museum on Water would represent not only a new tourist attraction, but also a testimony for an ancient civilisation.

It was a civilisation that was ahead of its time compared to other countries and continents, proving that Macedonia is an ancient country that has many things to offer before the world, said Gruevski.

The Museum on Water is set to be formally opened on Monday (Dec. 8) on the Day of St. Clement of Ohrid. The ceremony, which will be opened by PM Nikola Gruevski, is expected to be attended by numerous public figures.

A NEW PROPOSAL ABOUT THE NAME OF THE FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF BANOVINA VARDASKA:

Seeing the love of this new State and it's fabulous adorable and sofisticated cultured CITIZENS and FRIENDS (first of all!),

about the MACEDONIAN CULTURE OF GREECE,

and the desire to feel Greeks, we MACEDONIANS offer to the Slavobulgarian friends the HALF of our NAME -CEDONIA (the bigger half!)

(we just keep a sillabe MA- as this ma- is the very essence of our greek beings...)

and you UNIT the first part of your ex official name VAR-DASKA , so that you have a Beautiful, Historical, Original and Glamorous name, all YOURS:

VARCEDONIA!



A wonderful compromise with a BIG gift from your MACEDONIAN friends of GREECE.

We Macedonians are famous for our GENEROSITY! So the major part of the NAME is a special OFFER for you, beloved SLAVĪŸBULGARIAN FRIENDS!
