This must be one of the most beautiful places I've been in lately. I got to Ohrid at night and only saw in e lake a vast extension of blackness reflecting the pale light of the stars. However, when I returned to its shores next morning, with the sun shinning bright I was dazzled by the landscape: the lake is... More

Its small but very beautiful town. I enjoyed walking and visiting all famous places there. In every corner you can find beautiful little church. You cant miss to visit St Naum, its amazing and peaceful place.

Lake Ohrid, straddling the border between Macedonia and Albania, is Macedonian's favourite holiday resort. The deep, crystal-clear waters of the lake are ideal for swimming and boating. In summer there are ferries to Sveti (Saint) Naum, or you can hire a water taxi for shorter trips. The towns lining the shore are ancient and picturesque. The largest town, Ohrid, has... More

Charming and beautiful area. Very much a tourist town, but still an authentic feel to it. Good for a long weekend, but not that much to do beyond that. Definitely worth a trip if you're in Macedonia.

We spend 7 days in Macedonia and I'm glad we chose Ohrid for a New Year destination. Beautiful town, amazing lake, astonishing architecture and lots of things to do. We ate fresh fish and drank very tasty wine. Every restaurant fulfilled our expectations, Macedonia has a great cousine. We visited lots of incredible churches, museums and the national park 'Galichica'.... More

Excellent location of this church captures tourist's eyes followed by its architecture. St.John Kaneo church 13th c. – most known for its scenic location, standing on a cliff over Lake Ohrid. Notable about the cute architecture is Armenian influence in the zig-zag line of the roof of the dome. 100 denars (There are only few frescoes left inside, but the... More

We decided to spend the second day of Christmas in FYROM. After a short visit in Bitola we drove to the Ohrid lake. The road was in bad situation and although the distance was 70 km, it took us more than an hour to reach the place. When we arrived the view was fantastic. The lake is wonderful and despite... More
