Sveti Kliment Ohridski is a church whose construction started in 2002. Before that, it was a Turkish mosque built on the remains of the Eastern-Orthodox church. After 530 years the remains of Sveti Kliment were brought back to their initial tomb which was built by Sveti Kliment himself in 916. He was the first Slavic bishop elected in 893. The church is magnificent and nearby, there is archeological site- excavations of the original University, Baptizery, etc.,with beautiful floor mosaics. A few years ago the tourist were allowed to look at everything but now with excavations in full swing, the rope is making you stay outside and squint at the beauty of it all. Still, a place one should not miss.
