Parts of Jesus’s Cross

There are said to be parts of the cross on which Jesus was crucified in the foundations of three monasteries in Macedonia – St.Bogodorica Prechista in Kichevo and St.Jovan Bigorski and St.Georgij Pobedonosec in Debar. Across the country there are nearly 1952 churches and monasteries, while the city of Ohrid was once notable for having 365 churches, one for each day of the year. It has been accordingly nicknamed the Jerusalem of the Balkans.
