Ohrid

Church of Sts Clement & Pantelejmon

  Kuzman Kapidan     11 Mar 2019
A Byzantine beauty whose precise origins are shrouded in mystery and that’s thought to have been built on the site where the Glagolitic script, the forerunner to today’s Cyrillic script, was created and that some people say was designed by St. Clement of Ohrid (840-916) himself. Briefly converted into a mosque by the Ottomans during the 15th century, unlike many similar churches the magic surrounding this place isn’t so much about its architectural splendour or what treats lie waiting inside but has much more to do with its associations with several renowned figures, a fact that makes it one of the holiest sites in the entire region.
