St. Clement's church at Plaoshnik built by St.Clement in 893 A.D. on the foundation of the early Christian basilica, and dedicated to St.Panteleimon was the first Slavic University, the center of Slavic literacy and cultural activity. St. Clement's church St. Pantheleimon is located at Plaoshnik in the part of Ohrid town known as Imaret just southwards from the Samuel Fortress.

This restored Macedonian Orthodox Church with its origins in the 5th century was recently reconstructed, precisely in the style of a Byzantine church. The tomb of St. Clement is located on the southern side of the church.
