Things to do in Macedonia
Skopje - experience the Church of St. Clement
The Church of St Clement of Ohrid, is one of the most unusual cathedral churches in Europe, with it's domes and intriguing internal design and decoration. Completed in 1990 many of the basic “rules” of internal design are broken with large windows and paintings of the apostles seated instead of standing. Most unusual is interior lighting which is provided by 400 bulbs, set on a Polileum, under the central dome.
Skopje - walk along the Kale fortress walls
There has been a fortress of some kind at Skopje for over 1,400 years. Some of the ancient walls are still partially standing, thanks to renovations carried out in the 18th and 19th centuries. A walk along the walls, gives you a great view of the city, and a little piece of history. Extensive excavations are happening all around and near the fortress, from which more details of the ancient city and its inhabitants are found all the time.
