4.3/5 based on 70 reviews on the web
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.

  • the Church of St. Clement of Ohrid is the main and largest Macedonian Orthodox Cathedral. Long was built about 20 years. But it was worth it. Insanely spacious inside.

  • The newly built Cathedral Church, dedicated to Saint Clement of Ohrid is the largest Orthodox Church in Macedonia, takes little time to visit but it's interesting overall.

  • From my point of view absolutely the nicest church building in Skopje. The whole Church is beautifully decorated with images of Saints, including the ceiling in the dome. A place that definitely in Skopje, I recommend not forgetting.
