The building – seat of the University as a cultural heritage object
The building in which today is housed the Rector of the University St. Kliment Ohridski in Bitola, also known as the former building of the old municipality of Bitola, is a monument of culture of the Republic of Macedonia and one of the bright examples of Bitola architecture.
This facility was specially built for the Sultan Reshad V as his residence during his visit of Bitola in 1911 and represents one of the most beautiful examples of eclectic- renaissance facilities in Bitola.
North of the building is a small backing object – a private bath, which was within harem rooms to the main building, and this small private bath represents an integral part of the residence.
