Trip Planner: Europe / Republic of North Macedonia / Skopje Region / Skopje / Church of St. Clement of Ohrid
The largest Orthodox temple in Macedonia, Church of St. Clement of Ohrid draws attention for its unusual and somewhat robust exterior design: a rotunda made exclusively of domes and arches. The church was built over the course of 18 years, finally finished in 1990. A huge chandelier hanging from the dome dominates the interior with more than 400 light bulbs. See the painting of Jesus surrounded by seated prophets in the dome. The large windows are lined with acrylic crystal to keep out bright sunlight. Notice the round fountain in front of the church, a gift from the Islamic community. Make Church of St. Clement of Ohrid a part of your Skopje vacation plans using our Skopje sightseeing planner.

Church of St. Clement of Ohrid reviews
Definitely one of the most unique churches I have seen in all of the Balkan countries. The multiple circular domes and the green colors gives it all its character. more »
it is the biggest church in Skopje. looks great, it is nice architecture, but it is not old church like we have in Skopje and around Skopje. more »
Stunning church. Unlike any other. Very peaceful and welcoming. We lit a candle and enjoyed the interior which is full of icons and frescoes.
Peaceful place in the heart of the city where you light up Candle up for the living and your prayers and below for the desisted. This is the main orthodox church in Macedonia and in the capital. Every morning around 830 there is a small liturgy where you can join in.
