The building in which today is housed the Rectorate of the University St. Kliment Ohridski 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 the visit of Bitola in 1911 and represents one of the most beautiful examples of eclectic- renaissance facilities in Bitola.
