In the vicinity of the gallery is the church of St. Clement’s Church of the Holy Mother of God Most Glorious which dates from the 13th century and possesses some of the most beautiful and valuable frescoes from the 13th century not only in our country but in the Balkans as well.

Then we walk to Plaoshnik, the place where we visit the newly built St. Clement’s Monastery Church which is dedicated to St. Clement, the patron of Ohrid, and St. Panteleimon and which stands beside the original site of St. Clement’s University, the first university of the Macedonian Slavs started in the 9th century AD. Inside the church you can also see the tomb with St. Clement’s relics. Beside the church you can see the foundations of the 5th-century basilica with beautifully preserved mosaic floors and some swastikas also discovered on the floors. From here we head towards the Church of St. Jovan at Kaneo, which was built at the end of the 13th century, and is one of the most frequently visited churches in Ohrid because of its beautiful location on the cliffs directly above the lake. After this we go back to the town on foot. Another option is to return to the town by boat and at the same time to make a tour of the lake providing you with a great view of the town.
