It is a wonderful setting, but the market has arrived big time. But I guess that is the fate of all wonderful places when news gets out. Worth a visit, the restaurants on the lake are superb.

The monastery is just over the border with Albania on the shore of Lake Ohrid. The grounds are beautifully kept with peacocks strolling around. Saint Naum is a popular Macedonian saint. Visit the small church and avoid all the souvenir shops that all sell the same stuff. You can do a boat trip around the lake from here, but we... More
