Love the place! So peaceful and super clean water! It's amazing that water in a pond can be cleaner than the water we drink at home. Don't miss the boat trip! We took a few couple of bottles from there to drink.

There are various ways you can get to St. Naum from Ohrid, either by bus, boat or of course taxi. Boats depart from the port at 10:00 and 11:00 (€10/600 Denari, return), and it will take you an hour and a half to be there. On a sunny day, the boat ride itself is quite enjoyable. I went there in... More

We visited the monastery as a one day trip from Ohrid. The is a nice beach at the foot of the monastery, just they will not allow you to stay on the grass only on the sand. We had fantastic dinner at the restaurant Ostrovo with very tasty trout and eel.

I have a bit of mixed feelings about this attraction. On one hand, it is a revered place of spiritual enlightenment, on the other hand, you can see hints of a great mass of people rolling in and out during summer. Thus I have to say I'm very glad I've visited it off-season and saw the church of the monastery... More

Beautiful boat ride from Ohrid town. The springs were amazing and the restaurant on the clear water was so nice that it felt unreal. The actual monastery was bleak in comparison.

Either drive or take a boat ride here, it is a beautiful place to spend the day. There is a beach, beautiful restaurants and of course the St.Naum monastery with its magnificent views, history and religious significance. While there it is very nice to take a boat trip with the small boats - either with the guide talking or just... More
