Excursion – Bigorski Monastery

Bigorski  Bigorski monastery is a true Macedonian modern spiritual gem situated in the beautiful forest which lies on the mountain of Bistra. The monastery was founded by the monk Jovan 1000 years ago. He was inspired by a vision which he had when he saw the icon of St. John the Baptist floating and glowing over the majestic springs in the mountains. Nowadays the monastery grew into a true spiritual fortress that is reminiscent of the great monasteries on the Holy Mount of Athos with a fraternity of monks cultivating the essential Orthodox Christian values of life. Inside the temple of the monastery is present one marvelous iconostasis which is a unique masterpiece that cannot be found in all Orthodoxy.
