Prizren building 49:

This says 'pravoslavna [right faith]', from 'Pravoslavna Arhiepiskopija' and indicates that it was the door of the Orthodox Archbishopric.

[Corrected on the 14th of January 2007]

I had noted that, 'if this does say "pravoslabo..." ("slabo" meaning "poorly"), I think it might be the Cathedral Church of Saint George's infirmary.'

Anonymous commented that, 'that is not "pravoslabo..." but "pravoslavna" meaning "right faith" (orthodox),not "poor" like you were read...'; Vasilevs agreed that, 'I think,too,that the full name on these door is "pravoslavna arhiepiskopija" (orthodox archbishopy)'. This is really helpful, as I hadn't been able to tell during my visit and the only photographs I'd been able to compare this too left it unclear.
