Church of St. Clement of Ohrid, Skopje

4.0
#6 of 15 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.

  • This is the biggest church in capital city Skopje. Very close to the strong center of the city. So, if you like to visiting churches , you should visit this place.  more »
  • An architecturally pleasing edifice in the center of Skopje. It blends in well with the surrounding environs despite being on a very busy street intersection.  more »
  • arriving and leaving the city of Skopje this temple was starting and final photographic point of one-day visit to the city. Architectural with ... moved me more than any other building in the city and even from the massive statues and icily museums beyond ... Maybe because it fits more in the country's true identity?
