Trip Planner: Europe / Republic of North Macedonia / Southwestern Region / Ohrid / Saint Climent of Ohrid
Overlooking Lake Ohrid from its hilltop vantage point, represents one of Macedonia's most important monasteries and one of the first centers of Slavic language. Originally built in the 9th century, the church has undergone numerous renovations and reconstructions, including a long period where it functioned as a mosque. Visit the complex, set within a group of archaeological sites, and explore the interior, keeping your eyes open for the transparent floor panels that reveal original foundations underneath. As your wander within, keep in mind that you are following in the footsteps of Saint Clement himself, who died here in 916, as well as those of Cyril and Methodius, the founders of the Slavic Cyrillic alphabet.

Saint Climent of Ohrid Reviews
Saint Climent of Ohrid is another unique church in Ohrid . While we were there people were busy working to make it all perfect to prevent detoreation . Saint Climent of Ohrid is awesome ! more »
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. more »
Small church surrounded by a wonderful scenery. The only flaw is the buildings around, some under construction, others simply not suitable for the place. All in all it is a pleasant visit along the road to/from the huge fortress.
Very interesting, calm and nice place. Wonderful view over the city.
