Sveti Kliment Ohridski

This is the orthodox cathedral "Sveti Kliment Ohridski" (St Clement of Ohrid). It is the main church of Skopje. The cathedral is a modern 20th century building. I've heard thet interior is impressive, but I wasn't able to enter to see myself. There is also a big clock tower near it.

St Clement of Ohrid, Skopje

The orthodox cathedral "Sveti Kliment Ohridski" (St Clement of Ohrid) is the main church of Skopje.

The chathedral can be found at the corner of Partizanski and Ohridski, it is a modern 20th century building, which can quite easily be mistaken for a mosque.

A massive tribute to Orthodoxy

Skopje is pretty evenly divided between the Muslim north of the city and the Orthodox south, which is where you will find this massive church dedicated to Saint Kliment Ohridski. It was a bit difficult to find, owing to the fact that the massive post office building blocks the view of the river, but once you see the domes its easily to follow them to the church. There is a large tower (perhaps to balance out saat kula) and the entrance has a beautiful icon. Once inside the church you are confronted with spectacular paintings and icons, particularly on the walls opposite the altar. Pictures can be taken, although the interior is rather dark. Don't forget to take pictures of the ceiling as well!

Sveti Kliment Ohridski

This is the "seat" of the patriarch of the Macedonian Orthodox Church. It is a modern building that maintains the traditional orthodox church design. This is a picture of part of one side with the neighboring apartment buildings.

The icons over the door -- Sv. Kliment Ohridski

The deorations in the modern "cathedral" in Skopje aren't as wonderful as those at Sv. Spas or Sv Jovan Bigorski, but they are consistent with the modern building.
