Skopje, 2 July 2012 (MIA) - Culture Minister Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska Monday will pay a working visit to Dojran.
During the visit, Kanceska-Milevska will open souvenir shop as part of Ministry of Culture project for opening 20 unified tourism-cultural points.
She will also visit "St. Prorok Ilija" monastery.
A gift shop was opened Monday in Gevgelija, which will be managed by the Museum of Gevgelija. The shop is one of the 20 facilities opened by the Ministry of Culture across Macedonia.
The gift shop, where tourists will be able to purchase replicas of artifacts of the rich cultural heritage of Macedonia, was opened by Minister of Culture Elizabeta Kanceska-Milevska.
"Dojran deserves such a facility, which is of great importance for all those who visit the town to learn about our cultural heritage and to bring with them a valuable souvenir or to get a tourist info brochure," Kanceska-Milevska stated.
The minister accompanied by Dojran mayor Gligor Cabulev also visited the church "St. Prophet Elijah". Built in 1848 by Macedonian leading constructors, it was destroyed in 1916 during a bombing of Dojran in the First World War.
Archaeological diggings, conservation and restoration activities are under way in order the church to be fully restored by 2016 on the centenary of its destruction. ba/17:14
