Saint Kliment Ohridski Orthodox Cathedral - Skopje, Macedonia

The construction of the Macedonian Orthodox cathedral church, designed by Slavko Brezovski, began in 1972 and was consecrated on 12 August 1990, on the 1,150th anniversary of the birth of the church patron, St. Clement of Ohrid. This rotunda type church, with 36mx36m dimension, composed only of domes and arches, is one of the most interesting architectural examples in recent history. The church was dedicated to St. Clement of Ohrid, and the church below to the holy Mother . One of the chapels was dedicated to Emperor Constantine and Empress Elena, and the other to St. Mina, the martyr. The icons in the iconostasis were painted by Gjorgji Danevski and Spase Spirovski and the frescoes were painted by academic painter Jovan Petrov and his collaborators.
