    City Square with Clock Tower
    2 more images

    This spacious pedestrian area, called Metodi Satarov Sarlo, is next to the old Turkish part of Prilep, where also the Clock Tower can be found.

    The pictures were taken on a national holiday, when it was extremely quiet on this otherwise crowded square.

    Monastery of St Michael the Archangel
    2 more images

    The monastery can be found relatively close to the Towers of Marko, in a part of Prilep called Varos.

    It has a big 15th-century iron doorway. Underneath the main inn is a deep well, that can be entered through a small doorway. Take your flashlight!

    The second oldest Cyrillic inscription in Macedonia can be found here, carved at eye-level into the far right pillar as you stand in the exonarthex.

    The monastery only houses nuns.

    The church of St Atanas, without a roof now, is not far from the monastery of St Michael the Archangel.

    While you are in downtown Prilep take a taxi and tell the driver to drive to the St. Arhangel Mihail monastery. The taxi costs approximately $2. You can look at the church there, and you will have nice view of the city of Prilep.It is about a 20 minute walk back to downtown.
