Bombarded Church in Old Dojran to be Opened for Visitors

One of the biggest and oldest religious temples in the country, the church St. Prophet Ilija in Old Dojran, will be opened again for the public in 2016, when the town will mark the 100-year anniversary since its destruction in World War I, Dnevnik daily reads.


The municipal authorities inform that the inside of the church’s walls is being repaired at the moment, which is a task sponsored by the Ministry of Culture with MKD 300,000.

They also need to complete the necessary conservation and construction work before the church is put back to use, including painting the walls, placing windows and doors, as well as construction of a new iconostasis.



Previously, the conservation process of the east facade has been completed, as well as the rooftop surfaces. The parts of the facade that were damaged during the World War I bombardment will be restored in accordance with the original masonry.

Steigende Passagierzahlen - Mazedonien will neue Airline

Die Luftfahrt in Mazedonien wächst rasant. Davon profitieren vor allem ausländische Billigflieger. Deshalb will die Regierung eine neue Nationalairline.

In den vergangenen vier Jahren ist das Passagieraufkommen am Flughafen Skopje um 40 Prozent gestiegen. Im vergangenen Jahr verfehlte der Alexander-der-Große-Airport mit 920.000 Passagieren die Millionengrenze nur knapp. In diesem Jahr dürfte die Marke aber geknackt werden, wie das Nachrichtenportal Macedonia Online schreibt. Allein in den ersten fünf Monaten starteten und landeten 18 Prozent mehr Menschen als noch im Vorjahr. Der Frachtbereich verzeichnet sogar ein Plus von 22 Prozent.

«Jedes Jahr haben wir in etwa ein Wachstum von zehn Prozent», erklärte Alp Er Tunga Ersoy, Vizechef von TAV Macedonia, dem türkischen Betreiber der Flughäfen in Skopje und Ohrid. «Und das obwohl das Wachstum auf dem europäischen Markt bei nur fünf Prozent liegt.» Insbesondere Billigflieger landen immer häufiger in Mazedonien. Grund dafür dürften wohl auch massive Subventionen des Staates sein.
