St. Kliment of Plaoshnik is worth the short walk up to see the view which is spectacular. The church (admission fee) has been heavily reworked and renovated over the centuries and it sits on a site that is currently being archaeologically examined.

On the top of the hill, right over St.Kaneo and under King`s Samuil castle, you will find Plaosnik, the place where the first university was established. Today there is a church and a lot of mosaics and historical artifacts and for the lovers of nature there is a great view of Ohrid and the lake. Actually one of the places where you can see the lake in its real form.

Along with the great view of the Lake, this Monastery offers an enormous archaeological site all around it. The remnants of many ancient Macedonian settlements are layered on top of each other all over the area, and are being excavated and put on display daily. The church itself was built in 2001 on top of the Foundation of an ancient church that once sat there. Inside is the grave of St. Clement, who had a church school here in the 9th century. Even his church was built on top of a church that was here from the time of St. Paul the Apostle (1st Century A.D.) Short walk from the Samuel Fortress, and downtown Ohrid.

Rebuilt in 2001 over top of the foundations of an ancient monastery, this church has one of the most beautiful views of the Ohrid Lake. Many archaeological remains surround the church, where generations of settlers have lived. Many of the ruins are on display and can be seen for free. Highly recommended
