During the centuries the monastery was renewed several times and today it represents a beautiful building frequently visited by both travelers and locals. The Monastery of St. Naum owns a beautiful wood-carved iconostasis which originates from 1711. Many valuable icons are part of this iconostasis, thus you will see a group of small holiday icons as well as the icons of Mary with Christ, Jesus Christ and the Assembly of the Archangels. The icons represent some of the best religious painting achievements on the Balkan Peninsula.
