Plaoshnik, Ohrid

4.1
#6 of 12 in Historic Sites in Ohrid
Walk among tombs, ruins, and religious buildings at Plaoshnik, a conglomeration of different archaeological sites on the shore above Lake Ohrid. Visit the area and explore the different nearby attractions, including Ottoman graves and the remains of mosaics from as far back as the 4th century. Afterwards, enter the famous Church of St. Clement and Panteleimon, constructed in the year 893 CE, and see the inner workings of what was once among the most important monasteries in the region. Be sure to keep an eye on the floor in front of you, as transparent glass sections reveal the even older foundation that lies beneath the structure.

  • Entrance fee is 100 dinars, the place is an archeological site with very little to see and close to nothing as explanation. You end up looking at a bunch of rocks that have no meaning. The view of the lake is spectacular but the ensemble itself is poorly maintained
  • Amazing place and views. Definitely worth the visiting. My daughter got christened here.
