Nice little church which may be good goal if you want to stroll though Ohrid, perhaps while you're underway to the St. Jovan Kaneo, which is more spectacular. Beautiful views and... read more

Plaoshnik really is a great place to visit. Couple of years is builded on the basic of the very old churches, here is the oldest part of the town with so many archeological artefacts. And have a wonderful panoramic view on the lake

Lovely place - full of history and outstanding view over the Ohrid lake. Indeed, it was extremely interesting to see this ancient building from St. Kliment's and St Naum's times and this kind of university that brought, together with Preslav school, the enlightenment in the Slavic World. I would appreciate if more info could be exposed for visitors about the... More

Plaoshnik is a church that has been rebuilt albeit very well.In front of the church is some Roman pillars which are more interesting.

I wouldn't make a special trip just to see this church, as I thought Saint Sophia was more beautiful and Jovan Kaneo had much better views. BUT its located between the fortress and Jovan Kaneo, both of which were must-visits for me, so it wasn't an inconvenience to visit. Its an uphill trek to get here though. There is lots... More

It may be old but what you mainly see is 21st century restoration However it is still impressive with 5th mosaics, views of original foundations & religious relics

It is a really nice and well renovated monastery, with amazing mosaics around. Hire the guide at the entrance, She will tell you everything about the mosaic, history of the area. Card is not accepted.
