Sveti Kliment Ohridski, Ohrid

(4.3/5 based on 130+ reviews on the web)
Overlooking Lake Ohrid from its hilltop vantage point, represents one of Macedonia's most important monasteries and one of the first centers of Slavic language. Originally built in the 9th century, the church has undergone numerous renovations and reconstructions, including a long period where it functioned as a mosque. Visit the complex, set within a group of archaeological sites, and explore the interior, keeping your eyes open for the transparent floor panels that reveal original foundations underneath. As your wander within, keep in mind that you are following in the footsteps of Saint Clement himself, who died here in 916, as well as those of Cyril and Methodius, the founders of the Slavic Cyrillic alphabet.

  • Beautiful old Orthodox monastery next to Lake Ohrid at end of Ohrid's old town with many attractions
    View original
  • The silhouette of this church is very impressive, with its curves, domes and bell-tower giving it an exoticly Eastern or Orthodox look. The vivid blue of Lake Ohrid behind it makes the scene even more...  more »
  • Although it seems old is a completely rebuilt Church and the interior is almost completely white. Is very nice but you lack the charm of the centuries. The environment is very interesting and the history is of walls to outside.
