We enjoyed this small renovated church immensely because of its frescoes from the 12 century onward. One of them,behind the altar, is constructed from mosaic made from lapiz lazule. The caretaker has written a book about it which we purchased (in English) and she gave us a tour, her English is not good, but we could figure it out. She was intent on pointing out that the Macedonians consider this area to be the start of the Renaissance before Italy because of the more realistic paintings and the draping of the clothing. Also, look for Christ with wings, I had never seen such a portrayal before. Next door is a small icon museum with labels in English, very nicely done.

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.
