St Bogorodica Bolnicki (Holy Mother Bolnicki) is located very close to St Nikola Bolnicki in Ohrid. Both churches were built in the 14th century and were originally hospital churches (bolcnica means hospital).

The churches can be found on both sides of a small lane leading from the Lower Gate of the town wall to the lake. See the pictures for the entrances of the churches, they can easily be missed.

The churches were separated into the women's hospital of the Virgin Mary and the men's hospital of St Nikola, the latter one being about 70 years older.

St Nikola consists of an older church inside a newer church.

Both churches originally backed on the town wall, parts of which can still be found in the church grounds.

If one of the churches is closed, ask for the key in the other church.
