This is where we stayed, namely in Radozda village. The lake is beautiful day and night. During the day, you can see the fishermen leaving the village in their boats, seagulls trying for an easy meal, swans elegantly moving (swimming) on the lake, the clear water opens itself for you to see baby fishes...throw some bread and you'll see bigger...

Just returned and was not disappointed :) Great scenery, beautiful lake and very good value restaurants for the money. Don't miss the opportunity to head to the source of the lake at St Naum

Ohrid City is full of action including shopping, casinos, restaurants and more shopping... Lake Ohrid is magnificent and a must see.. The water is freezing cold and apparently cold all year round.. We recommend taking one of the boats for a trip to St Naum across the other side of the lake.. The view was unreal throughout the boat trip..... More

Beautiful lake. Quiet. Great views. Take a day trip to St. Naum. Boat Christina takes time to bring you to St. Naum. Price is only 600 den. or 10€ for a round trip. Taxi boats can bring you to restaurants or Struga.

The lake itself is gorgeous and there's some great walks around it. The shore can be quite dirty in places though. It seems like a lot needs to be done to make sure it stays clean. In saying that, watching the sun go down at night was beautiful, and if you are travelling through Macedonia it is a must see.

I would recommend wearing jelly shoes on the shore as it is surrounded by rocks and pebbles, however when i went swimming off the boat it was beautiful and deep enough to not wear shoes. The water is clean and there isn't too much tourism. The only downfall is the amount of people offering you water taxi rides but that... More

Lake Ohrid is a wonderful place to stay and relax. Beautiful surrounding mountains, nice village of Ohrid, in former time called the City of Light. We found the people very friendly and helpful. InJune it is still quiet. July and August is high season. It is perfect as a starting place for trip throughout Macedonia. Lots of places to enjoy... More

The Ohrid lake is well-known by its clear water, nice weather, beautiful old town and some monasteries around the lake. It is a very nice supplement for the sea holidays. So, many tourists love to come here as in nearby hotels and restaurants they can get very tasty food and friendly service for very a decent price.
