Kalishta Monastery near Struga, Macedonia

Kalishta is a monastery complex placed on the coast of Ohrid Lake in a natural rocky environment.
The monastery which is directly under the authority of the Archbishop of a Macedonian Orthodox Church, consists of four churches: two dedicated to the Nativity of  Holy Mother of God (one old, in a cave and one new), a Church dedicated to Sts. Peter and Paul, the apostoles, and one dedicated to St. Athanasius the Great (in a cave).
