Dihovo – St. Demetrius

Saint Demetrius – Sveti Dimitrij – Dihovo – Свети Димитриј Дихово

Just seven kilometers west of Bitola in the picturesque village of Dihovo on the foothills of Mount Baba is this single nave church dedicated to Saint Demetrius.  The bell tower attached to the church and its style is unique for Macedonia.

We were hoping to gain entry to the church but each time we happened by the church, it was not open and we could not find anyone with a key. A trail through the Pelister National Forest to Pelister’s Peak and to the two mountain lakes, called Pelister’s Eyes, begins not too far from this church after you leave the village.
