Church of St. Clement of Ohrid, Skopje

4.3
#5 of 10 in Historic Sites in Skopje
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 part of your Skopje vacation plans using our Skopje sightseeing planner.
