A gold mask, which was unearthed by archaeologists a couple of years ago at a site near Ohrid’s Fortress of Samuil, will leave FYROM for the first time to be displayed at an exhibition in the Netherlands together with about hundreds of valuable archaeological items from the FYROM cultural and historical heritage.
 
Several rare icons from Ohrid are to be also displayed at an exibit titled “Christianity in Macedonia“, which will be opened in the Dutch city of Utrecht as of Feb. 8.

The exhibit will include original works of art and archaeological items that are invaluable, thus they have been insured at Euro 139 million.

The exhibit is scheduled to run for three months and visitors will have a rare chance to see unique items, which are part of the FYROM history, culture and art.

Amongst other things, the exhibit is expected to encourage the Dutch to visit FYROM especially during the summer tourist season.
