BASILICA AND TOMB FOUND NEAR ZRZE



National.

A basilica of the fifth and a martyr tomb of IVth century are the new discoveries of excavation activities in the vicinity of 'Holy Transfiguration' Monastery near Zrze.

The discoveries confirm that Christianity was present in this area from the IVth century onward, archaeologist Branko Risteski told reporters.

These discoveries are very significant for us and they justify the financial means we have been investing in researching. This is grand historic treasure for our country, said Prime Minister Nikola Gruevski, who visited the site along with Culture Minister Elizeabeta Kanceska Mileska and Director of the Office for Protection of Cultural Heritage Pasko Kuzman.
