I discovered the Ohrid lake & the area around through a Macedonian friend and I must say that I felt in love with this region between this lake and the Prespa lake. Everything seems untouched, people here are yet living in the future but also in the past. I will certainly go back!

The lake is very beautiful and attractive in the summer. Around the lake you can find a lot of good restaurants, pubs, bars and hotels, nice boardwalk with a lot of shops, restaurants and Ice cream parlors. The ambiance is great with a lot of places to go travel.

There is a charismatic presence of this lake overlooked in the westby the steep frowning mountains of Albania and by broad forested slopes to the east. It demands respect. Measuring almost 20 km long and 10 wide, it plunges to a depth just short of 1000 ft. Its older then 3 million years making it one of the oldest in... More

The Lake Ohrid was a well preserved naturally beautiful place with many historical magnets. The clean and fresh air refresh your body.

We were highly impressed with Ohrid. It's one of the most beautiful locations we have visited. The lake is beautiful, the ancient monetary is lovely and offers insight into area culture, the college-under-construction will add a positive dimension to the village, and there are a few good restaurants. There are many special places that will please a photographer. The mountains... More

it was great to take a boat ride, and enjoyed the nature around. Combine it with some sightseeing around, and try some local food, and fish soup.

Really beautiful, it feels like Italy or somewhere like that (only cheaper!) It's too cold in early April to do any water activities, hence the 4 stars, but I'd say in summer it's incredible.

It's absolutely stunning. But we got here in early April which we thought was spring but it was clearly still winter. We were frozen, no one was around and it just held no allure for us unfortunately. Also wasn't impressed with any restaurants. We were disappointed.

Undiscovered yet. One of the deepest and oldest lakes in Europe. A lot of photo opportunities from the boat looking into shore and the shoreline looking out.
