Church of Saint Dimitrija, Skopje
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Known among Orthodox Christians for its "self-cleaning frescoes," Church of Saint Dimitrija was erected in the 18th century on the site of an older 13th-century church. Legend has it that an Ottoman pasha adapted the church for his personal harem at one point in its history. Most of the icons and wall paintings turned darker over the years because of the residue of burning candles. However, in 2012 on a Sunday before Easter the colors of the frescoes and icons, especially gold and red, started getting brighter for no obvious reason. The alleged miracle attracted hundreds of believers. Today the church serves as a pleasant resting place where you can still admire the interior frescoes.
