You have to visit and then drop down for meal at the lakeside restaurants. The Church is beautiful with great views over Ohrid towards Albania.

It has an excellent view on the Ohrid lake. It is a place where you'd like to build a house and live there forever.

The church has been situated on a hill above the lake. The from there is beautiful. As well, the church itself is interesting and you can see old wall-paintings.

This is really ancient place. Very old building. Close from city center. You have to see it when in Ohrid.

Definitely the most beautiful place in Ohrid. I had planned to briefly pass through, but I ended up staying for around an hour. Would definitely recommend.

One of the must have's on the walking tour around the old city. Not really worth it to go inside though

If you want to see the most amazing view of the lake and the city, Kaneo is the place to be. With the magnificent beach just under the monastery, it is a complete feeling of relaxation.

So BEAUTIFUL! St. Jovan Kaneo has an amazing background of lake Ohrid and just looks magnificent. The church is roughly 800 years old and made of traditional stone, It's one of those places that makes you feel like your in heaven. It's a great photo opportunity and doesn't cost you anything! I loved it, definitely recommend it to everyone!

Surrounded by lake and snow capped mountains. Views are lovely. We walked to the church but took a boat ride back to town. It was nice as our boat took us further to view the church from the lake.
