The Church of the Ascension of Jesus (Macedonian: Црква „Св. Спас“) is a Macedonian Orthodox Church in Skopje, North Macedonia. It is situated east of Kale Fortress.
The church was built in the mid-16th century and is three-nave, with the middle vessel arched and flat pages covered with gains in domes. In the west is the gallery for women. On the south wall, above the present level of the floor during the repair of the church year 1963-64 was discovered a flat painting dating from the 16th-17th century. During the 19th century the church was given the final look. In 1824 the iconostasis was completed and in 1867 it was part of the throne icons. The iconostasis and icons were made by cooperatives and traders from Skopje.

The church was built in the later half of the 18th century (so it is not so old), but has interesting stories to tell. It is quite worth to pay around 2 Euro to see the inside of it and hear a story about the altar, how it was made, who were the three guys in the corner of altar and why the church is dug into the ground.
