St. Nicholas Hospital – Sv. Nikola Bolnichki – Св. Никола Болнички in Ohrid (Охрид)

This hospital church, Sv Nikola Bolnichki, is located in the old part of the town Ohrid close to the lake and just opposite of St. Mary’s Hospital (Sv. Bogorodica Bolnička) The church was built in 1313.  In the first picture in the gallery below, St. Mary’s is on the left and St. Nicholas is on the right.

This is a vaulted single nave church with a semicircular arch featuring coastal architecture that is completely made from stone. In the church’s courtyard are remains of city walls that led from Samuel’s Fortress to the lake.  Also in the courtyard you can see where local fishermen have stored their boats.
