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.

  • generally with the religious monuments do not go well ... But if there is something extraordinary as picture begins and it bothers me. Large and relatively modern church, compelling attraction in a city with poor images, interesting perhaps has some archaeological site ...
