reshad-v-monastir-1911-01

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 the 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 – private bath, which was within harem rooms to the main building, and this small private bath represents integral part of the residence.
