Church of St. Clement of Ohrid, Skopje

4.3
#6 of 11 in Historic Sites in Skopje
Church Tourist Spot
The largest Orthodox temple in Macedonia, Church of St. Clement of Ohrid draws attention for its unusual and somewhat robust exterior design: a rotunda made exclusively of domes and arches. The church was built over the course of 18 years, finally finished in 1990. A huge chandelier hanging from the dome dominates the interior with more than 400 light bulbs. See the painting of Jesus surrounded by seated prophets in the dome. The large windows are lined with acrylic crystal to keep out bright sunlight. Notice the round fountain in front of the church, a gift from the Islamic community. Make Church of St. Clement of Ohrid a centerpiece of your Skopje vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Skopje vacation route planner.

  • Visible even from the top of Mount Vodno, this church is recognisable by its series of arches. Outside there is a fountain; inside there are golden icons and a huge chandelier.  more »
  • Unfortunately we did not enter, but only passed besides while waiting at traffic lights. Is situated beside the main boulevard and I think near main square. It looked gorgeous!  more »
  • Macedonian people seem to take religion quite seriously and there are loads of churches there. This one is the biggest, and is moderately interesting.  more »

Where to stay in Skopje

The capital of Macedonia and a city of numerous sights, Skopje offers a good selection of places to stay despite its relatively modest size. Even though most hotels cluster in the center of town, you can easily find accommodation in other neighborhoods too. The selection ranges from several high-end hotels and fully-furnished apartments to many economical but charming places to stay. The city wide selection of hostels, many of which are very close to the city center, appeal to younger travelers.
