The Saraj, Resen

The Saraj in Resen 

The Saraj in Resen is the most representative building of the old city architecture in the region of Prespa. It is built in the beginning of the 20th century by the Ottoman bey Ahmed Niyazi Bey, most probably inspired by the postcard of Versailles he received. With its architectural and aesthetic values, this beautiful palace is listed among the most impressive neoclassical buildings from the early twentieth century. Today, the Museum is the seat of the House of culture “Dragi Tozija”, the gallery dedicated to the renowned painter Keraca Visulcheva, a library of 31.000 books and the remarkable ceramic colony which is a member of the International Academy of Ceramics of UNESCO.
