Worth the trip down the hill. Beautifully restored church and courtyard. It has been restored inside and you can see the skill of the craftsmanship in the painted walls and ceiling along with the brickwork. Walking around the grounds you get a feel for how the site was originally.

The university are involved and there is ongoing restoration work.

This church looks nice from the outside. The inside was not especially impressive, and there was no information about the history. Someone also decided to vacuum the church whilst we and many other visitors were there, which was a little disruptive!

Churs was demolished. Turn into a mosche and then demolish and build church again in 2002. Its amazing and inside you can see original foundation deep down from top. Worth a visit!

Much was destroyed by the Ottomans (made it a mosque) but still of interest. Interior is OK, given the damage. Nice views. Not much signage.

The most sacred in the region, this ancient Byzantine church sits on a hill overlooking the lake. Absolutely beautiful! Stand on the main tower of the fortress and you'll have an amazing view of the church, lake, and mountains.

After the rebuilding the old St. Clemente's 10th century church and university buildings following some old plans end sketches, the building became great. It doesn't matter if this is not exactly thow the old building was... That was NOT the intention from the beginning... The idea was to mark this place as very secrete and holly site for macedonian orthodox christians!

Ohrid has its fair share of stunning religious sites, and while this probably won't be top of anyone's list, it's still worth seeing and takes great photos from the right angles.

This church is well worth visit, it is absolutly beautiful inside, the frescos are so colourful. There was a nice man inside that gave us lots of information on the church to which was very nice of him. You cant take photos but it is so worth seeing. I highly recommend it and its only around £1 to go in.

This is a large cathedral undergoing a large renovation. There are paintings inside and a story of the renovation. One of the best Ohrid churches.
