Religious Site Historic Site
Walk among tombs, ruins, and religious buildings at Plaoshnik, a conglomeration of different archaeological sites on the shore above Lake Ohrid. Visit the area and explore the different nearby attractions, including Ottoman graves and the remains of mosaics from as far back as the 4th century. Afterwards, enter the famous Church of St. Clement and Panteleimon, constructed in the year 893 CE, and see the inner workings of what was once among the most important monasteries in the region. Be sure to keep an eye on the floor in front of you, as transparent glass sections reveal the even older foundation that lies beneath the structure. Plan to see Plaoshnik and other attractions that appeal to you using our Ohrid holiday planner.
