The first Macedonian Orthodox church in Croatia, the church of St. Zlata Meglenska, was dedicated in Zagreb, and at the consecration ceremony, Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic, on behalf of the Croatian Government, received the highest recognition of the Macedonian Orthodox Church – Ohrid Archdiocese – the Order of St. Clement of Ohrid, in a sign of gratitude and sincere friendship.
The awards were presented to them by the head of the Macedonian Orthodox Church, Archbishop Stefan of Ohrid and Macedonia, and the ceremony in Zagreb was attended by Metropolitan Pimen of Europe and Mr. Joseph.
The first Macedonian Orthodox Church in Croatia was registered in December 1993. In 1995, the Zagreb Archdiocese gave the temporary use of the Church of St. Roc in Zagreb, and the construction of the Church of St. Zlata Meglenska, dedicated to the 18th-18th century saint and martyr, began nine years ago.
In his words of gratitude, Prime Minister Plenkovic expressed his joy at the presence of “a great event, of a truly historical character for the Macedonian minority in Croatia”.
