This is well restored site just around from the slightly-more-famous St. John's at Kaneo. It has a scenic setting by the lake and is interesting as it has a newer appearance inside and out than many historic sites. Also, nearby is a very well done archaeological site for an ancient Christian basilica; the mosaic tile floors are amazingly well preserved.

As Orthodox churches go, it's well ... an Orthodox church. New and not terribly interesting, but worth a brief stop if you're visiting the ancient ruins nearby.

The "new" Saint Clement is to be found on the Plaosnik Hill. It was newly built according to ancient plans and incorporates fragments of the former construction. It is not without charm, but in roder to see it one has to pass through the touristic entrance to the (formerly free visitable) hill, and that does imply a detour if you... More

The setting is stunning and the history fascinating. A Roman site, developed as a church by St Kliment (the local hero), demolished by muslims and rebuilt as a mosque and now rebuilt as a beautiful church. Now the site is being developed as the renewed University, with the structure bridging the archaeological remains. Will it work? Time will tell. We... More

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.

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
