10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE CONSERCATION OF THE CHURCH OF ST. JOHN THE BAPTIST IN AERODROM WHOSE KTETOR IS VANCHO CHIFLIGANEC

Ten years ago, on June 14, 2014, with a large church and public gathering, the orthodox church “Saint John the Baptist” was consecrated and solemnly opened in the Municipality of Aerodrom, near the Bliznak bridge, on the Vardar River in Skopje, whose ktetor and donor is Prof. Vancho Cifliganec,PhD, the head of Adora Business Group. Over the past decade, this spiritual corner has grown into a place where believers have made countless prayers, a large number of weddings have taken place under the arches of the temple, many baptisms have taken place in the baptistery, as well as traditional, beautiful Orthodox celebrations.

The church was consecrated by the head of the MOC-OA, His Beatitude, Mr. Stefan, in communion with the bishops and clergy, in the presence of famous public figures and a large number of believers. The Archbishop of Ohrid and Macedonia, as a sign of gratitude for the construction of the temple, to the founder Vancho Cifliganec awarded the Order of St. Kliment Ohridski of the First Order, the highest recognition of the Macedonian Orthodox Church. The founder Chifliganec presented him in turn, with a gilded medal and symbolically handed him the key to the church “St. John the Baptist”, putting it under patronage of the MOC-OA, a gift to Macedonia, the Orthodox believers and the Macedonian people.

The temple is a five-domed church with specific, ancient architecture and rich interior fresco painting. In the church complex there is an 18.5-meter-high bell tower, a horticulturally arranged park with a fountain and benches, and in 2018, the accompanying building, the baptistery, was consecrated. A special detail is the natural, millennia-old stone of 15 tons, brought from the Buchim mine, with written wise messages from the founder Chifliganec, among which are: “Like a stone that weighs in its place, so a man weighs with his actions” and “Only deeds are the reality, as a testimony of our existence”.

In the Skopje Aerodrom Municipality, Adora engineering has built 20 high-quality buildings with 1,500 apartments, 80 business premises and one shopping center, with a total area of 110,000 m², which is a significant part of the total buildings built in the 22-year existence of this real estate development brand, which is also operating in other business areas, such as finance and energy. The construction of the “Saint John the Baptist” church is part of Adora’s socially responsible mission, prof. Dr. Vancho Cifliganec and the foundation of the same name, in which more than 5 million euros, a lot of love and humanity have been invested so far.
