Publications on Macedonian Cultural Heritage Launched

Ministry of Culture and Cultural Heritage Protection Office launched Wednesday ten English language publications on archaeological sites and cultural monuments, which are part of the latest project “The most important values in the sphere of cultural and natural heritage in the Republic of Macedonia.” The latest edition will include a total of 130 publications that are expected to be launched by the end of 2018.

Seven of the first ten editions are dedicated to ancient archaeological sites: Styberra, Heraclea Lyncestis, Skupi, Skopje Fortress, Tetovo Fortress – Baltpepe, Tsar’s Tower, Staro Bonce, while three editions are related to medieval sacred buildings – St. Panteleimon Church in Nerezi, Zrze Monastery and Painted Mosque in Tetovo.

Culture Minister Elizabeta Kanceska-­Milevska said that 130 publications in English language are planned to be divided in four sections representing monuments from the medieval, late medieval and renaissance era, the prehistoric and ancient period, rich monastery treasures from the middle ages and the most impressive Macedonian eco-­landscapes.

Director of Cultural Heritage Protection Office Viktor Lilcic said that the public and visitors of museums are in need of access to specific information based on professional scientific studies.

 The academician Vera Bitrakova­-Grozdanova noted that the new project will signify an affirmation not only of the Macedonian cultural heritage but also of Macedonian researchers, because their long-­standing work is valued.

Ten publications will be presented at two fairs on archaeology, tourism and cultural heritage ­ in Paestum, Italy (from October 29  to November 1) and the International Heritage Show at the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris (from November 5 to November 8).
