Beautiful place!

A must when you are around. Beatiful lake, nice city. Don't miss a tour over the lake when you are there. Transportation to Skopje via bus is cheap & easy.

A great lake, and Ohrid is the perfect place to explore it. It is full of history, great churches, good bars with beaches, lovely rural architecture and friendly people. 100% recommended

Don't miss to take a walk around to the many small medieval churches in and around Ohrid town! It is a walk a little up and down in the hilly town, but definitely worth it even on a hot day!

There is really something special about this old and mysterious lake. Surrounded by beautiful scenery this place is truly magical. Here you will find a blend of tradition and contemporary and something for people of all ages. Lots of historical things to see, fun shopping, lots of live music, passionate people and a place simply buzzing with amazing energy.

My biggest mistake was that this summer I was the first time in Ohrid, although this was part of my former homeland. I think I knew a lot about Ohrid, but I was surprised in many ways, especially by the fact that there everything works as in the famous resorts: clean, neat, a lot of wonderful flowers, extremely friendly and...

Spent there with my family three days. Really, we were suprised with transparency of the water - there is possible to see 22 meters in the deep. We swam every day. The lake is very rich with fishes and birds. Also there are living some endemic animals because lake exists more of three milion years.

What a beautiful lake with a pittoresque town - old Ohrid. Very touristic in Summer, but certainly worth a visit.
