Sveti Kliment Ohridski, Ohrid

4.6
#4 of 10 in Historic Sites in Ohrid
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.

  • This temple complex can be entered in the route daily tours Ohridu. Descending from the fortress, we come to the monastery of St. Kliment. The entire complex is worth seeing. Not everything is available, because the ongoing archaeological excavations but what you can is a must see. Entrance is just 2 euros. Sightseeing route is not tiring.

  • With amazing views, you can visit the old church before drinking wine. Our portions were closed at the time went, but still, we climbed a glorious Church.
