We hired a driver to bring us out to the Monastery and we are so glad we did. Not only was he a local who was able to give us a bit of history there and along the way, but we were also able to take in the beautiful scenery as we drove there from city center. I appreciated this... More

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

And naturally, we visited this splendid complex of the Eastern Orthodox churches that make the Monastery of Saint Naum. It is located to the south from Ohrid Town or in the southeast part of the Ohrid Lake. We may say it is a little secluded from the rest part of the long shore of lake, with its very renown touristic... More

We visited the weekend Saint Naoum Monastery. It is situated only 29 klm fron Ohrid town. The surroundings are great, with lakes, bridges, beach, peacocks, plants, great gardens. There are a lot of touristic shops and a very nice skara tavern to eat and drink beer. In the monastery there is the tomb of Saint Naoum and they say if... More

If you are in the Ohrid region, you have to see St Naum Monastery. The monastery itself is very, very beautiful, plus, the view it offers is simply breathtaking.

Ignore the long row of cabins lining the route to the actual monastery - they all sell the same stuff. The harbour had several boats moored so we expected a crowd in the monastery. To our surprise there was hardly anyone there. The gardens are nicely kept with exotic peacocks strutting around. The church itself is tiny but has a... More
