We had a guide telling us about the monastery that is there and the history od the church, but I was so impressed by the beauty that I was only taking pictures telling myself I'm going to read about it later on the internet.

The building has its own unique architecture but when i was there, there were few conservation works. If you're lucky they wont charge you entrance fee. I got in the for free. To get there, you have to do a little climb from the oldtown.

Set amongst Roman ruins this is an interesting place. There is no information to help you, although official guides are available, working on tips, to provide you with a tour. Unfortunately there was a lot of building work going on while we were there, which was a shame and spoilt it a little.

Renovated building , using little of the original stonework it appears. Now surrounded by a building site for a private development. Disappointing inside as nothing original. The archeology around is interesting and the best aspect is the lovely view. Shame this outstanding site is being negatively altered.

For 100 den you can see the church, the grounds and the ruins of an early christian basilica. The grounds are being renovated and there are some ugly fences around. Anyway, the interior of the church is worth the visit. It is well-kept and has soothing, conducive to contemplation atmosphere.

This chur h is lovely in a great setting and worth a visit. They are building a university around it but don't be out off by the building work. When you're there you won't notice.

The site comes with an excellent view of Lake Ohrid. The price to visit the ground and the church is affordable too.

This church has a great location by the lake and looks good so it is on all the postcards, yet it is a new construction and as beautiful as it is, is not as interesting historically as other churches in Ohrid such as St.Bogorodica Perivlepta or St Sophia.
