Church of St. Clement of Ohrid, Skopje

(4.4/5 based on 80 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. 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.

  • This Orthodox Church is located just outside the Centre of town is a bit hidden from the square and the city centre but not very charming work outside, very special, inside is still being completed, some icons and a few faithful inside.

  • The Orthodox Church with arches design, very nice. Sits on a busy Avenue and close to the Local market. Excellent frescos and with peaceful spaces inside the courtyard of the Church. Not to be missed.

  • I do not know anything of the religion Orthodox but their churches I have liked much. Is full of pictures with the Saints. In St. Clement not stop entering and leaving people. What caught my attention is that it santiaguan many times and very fast in front of the images. Some were leaving money just on top of the image. To the entry to the left there is a place where is put candles. These candles are very fine.
