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.
