The Church of St. George (Macedonian: Црква „Св. Великомаченик Георгиј“, Crkva "Sv. Velikomačenik Georgij"; Serbian: Црква Светог Ђорђа or Crkva Svetog Đorđa) is a Macedonian Orthodox church in the village of Staro Nagoričane, near Kumanovo in the Republic of Macedonia. It is noteworthy both for its architecture and its frescoes. It is considered a key example of Christian heritage in this area.
The church was first constructed in 1071, and reconstructed between 1313 and 1318 by the Serbian king Stefan Milutin. During this reconstruction period, the church's walls were painted with frescoes by Michael Astrapas and Eutychios, among which are depictions of Stefan Milutin and his queen, Simonida. The Bulgarian emperor, Michael Shishman, was buried in the wall of this church after he died at battle of Velbazhd, against Serbian king Stefan Urosh III Dechanski in 1330.
