st. climent, Ohrid: 13 reviews and 35 photos


This is the newest church in Ohrid, completed in 2002, but retains traditional architectural styles and is located on the historical site of the old church. This was the site of the old monastary of St Kliment which was turned into a mosque by the Turks and later destroyed. When the new church was consecrated in 2002 the relics of St Kliment were returned to this site from Sv Bogorodica Perivlepta Church where they had rested for over 500 years. Add this colorful history the beautiful views and setting of the church and the area, this is well worth visiting. Also it is next the the 4th century Basilica and is on the path going from St Jovan to Tsar Samoil's Fortress. Entry is 100 denar.
