This modern church has a very traditional dome ceiling with beautiful fresco paintings. The mix of styles is more like a mashup but the result is quite interesting.

When we visited there was a traditional celebration for Saint Clement Ohridski - a Bulgarian saint - with crowds flocking to kiss the icons on display.

Priest would shower worshipers with holy water for a small consideration ... otherwise no cost for visit.

I first saw this church 12 years ago and was very impressed. Now when I return I have the same feeling that I am staring at a space ship. Although it has icons like an ortodox church, I do not feel it like one. It has nothing in common with orthodox, catholic nor muslim way of building churches. And the bell tower is also built in a strange modern style.
When I entered the church the audio sound system was swithched on and a lady was reading some sort of modern christian poem/letter explaining to God how much guilty she was.....no comment
I recommend the visit of this place. I cannot say how you will feel about it. I do not really feel it like a church. Rather a modern interpretation of Star wars in macedonian style.

This is a very beautiful church inside and outside. Unusual design outside. Holy water fountain close to the entrance.
