Monastery St. Petka


On the slopes of the hill Olmec is the monastery St. Petka. In the middle part of the exterior of the five-sided apse, the following inscription is written: "Saint Petka. Built on the request of Czar Sultan Abdul Hamid. With the help of the folk in the time of the prior Naum Ilinchev. In the year 1890 May 22." The monastic church is single-nave basilica with two domes. The iconostasis is from the 1969, and in the interior there are icons from the 19th century. It is fresco-painted recently, by the fresco-painter Dragan Risteski. Under the today's church there are leftovers of mortar from a cave-church. The church was enlarged in 1922, during the time of the priest Alekso Shokaroski. A poetic night is held in the monastic church, in August, in the honor of one of the greatest Macedonian poets Zivko Chingo, who was born in the village Velogoshti.
