It's Orthodox Christian Easter in two days, so I will show you one of the biggest churches in Skopje - Saint Clement of Ohrid.

Quote:
The construction of the Orthodox Cathedral church, designed by Slavko Brezovski, began in 1972 and was consecrated on 12 August 1990, on the 1150th anniversary of the birth of the church patron, St. Clement of Ohrid. This rotunda type church, with 36m x 36m dimension, composed only of domes and arches, is one of the most interesting architectural examples in recent Macedonian history. The main church is dedicated to St. Clement of Ohrid, and the church below to the Holy Mother. One of the chapels is dedicated to Emperor Constantine and Empress Helena, and the other to St. Mina, the martyr.

Wow, St Clement church is very unique. The iconostasis is resplendent too.

Yesterday was the International Workers' Day and this day is a holiday in my country, so people don't go to work and they celebrate it mostly by barbecue somewhere in the nature or some of them go to protest for better rights for the working class.

With two of my friends I went to the lake Kozjak, some 20 km from Skopje. It's actually an accumulation on the river Treska. The Kozjak Hydro Power Plant was open for use in 2004, so this is one of the newest artificial lakes in my country. The nature around the lake is amazing and I recommend this place for everyone that will visit Skopje.

...and some 30 minutes later we came to a rock that give us very nice view (you can see the dam too)



on the way back, already in Skopje, on the Boris Trajkovski blvd.

So, two days ago the Pope visited Skopje for the first time. At the time I was at work so I didn't made any photos, but I will post few from the official government profile on flickr. About 15.000 people attended to the event and the city was under enormous security measures.

BTW, thanks for all the comments and the likes on the previous page.
