Magaza (Gallery)

Magaza gallery Bitola

Magaza cultural center in Bitola is gallery exhibition space in which many temporary exhibitions or various events are held throughout the year.

During Turkish time, the “Magaza” (Storehouse) represented true haven for traders who brought their wares in Bitola.

Through these gates passed, were stored, exhibited and sold a variety of goods intended not only for the local but also for the major European markets.

This object is one of the many “Magazas” that existed in Bitola in the middle of the nineteenth century. Here were stored, negotiated and consulted the prices of products.

This object several years ago was reconstructed by the Ministry of Culture of Republic of Macedonia and was adapted as Art gallery, in which are placed numerous exhibitions of various kinds and character, are held poetry readings, chamber concerts and other cultural events.
