The monastery is beautiful. Unfortunately, it is not original but rebuilt recently. In the monastery St. Kliment's school took place in 9th century when and where the priests were taught in Cyrilic.

The walk up & down there is lovely, either ways (we took two different paths). Once you've reached the church, you can of course enjoy it, as well as the wonderful views over the lake.

While in Ohrid, this is one destination that you must visit. It is truly a beautiful church. It photographs so well and has such a nice backdrop with the water. The inside of the church also has much to offer with its beautiful paintings. Make sure to check out the restoration area close by, as well.

The prettiest church in Ohrid City! The interior of the church is really magic. The archeological site has also interesting things to show.

Relatively near the Lake Ohrid bay, if You just start to climb uphill ,to the old city centre, before long, You will get to this pearl among the churches in Ohrid Town. By this mean, we also walked through the ancient,architectural complex of narrow,curved, tiny cobbled streets, and have seen the beautiful, old buildings along the road. The church itself... More

Macedonia has many beautiful churches and several of my favorites are in Ohrid! You can't go wrong visiting these. Try to avoid the groups. Restoration and archaeology occurring nearby.

I've been travelling and this is one of the better church in terms of the fresco still area there to be viewed, most of the other churches are more left to your imagination as to what could have been and while that's nice, nothing beats a near complete floor to ceiling church filled with frescos - make no mistake, it's...

Lots of churches in Ohrid, and this should be in your top three to target, along with St. Sophia and, more debatable, Plasonik (more for the remains of the early basilica than the modern reconstructed church) You enter with a somewhat steep walk to the city walls, and in through the gate. The cruciform building gives you a really nice... More
