“Beautiful flowers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

Beautiful nature. On the side of the road beautiful flowers. Even more beautiful than a garden center. Nice views on the lake Ohrid

“Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2014

This was also worth seeing, and dining around the area. Very peaceful place. The locals were very busy getting it ready for the real summer travelers.

“Not worth a visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

We drove through the Park on our way to the St Naum Monastery. The views of the lake were nice but the National Park did not elicit any interest.

“Awesome hiking in pristine scenery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

For the seasoned hill walker, Galicica National Park offers mile upon mile of marked trails in stunning, unspoilt countryside. From the easy climb to Magaro peak at the southern end of the park to the excellent 26km walk along the spine of the range, from the Saddle back into Ohrid, there is always plenty to see. Love the place and, from our base in Ohrid, we can be in the mountains and away from the crowds of urban life in a matter of minutes.

For info on the walking can be seen here: http://wulfrunian.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/macedonia-galicica-traverse-23813.html

“Breathtaking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

There a lot of things that you can see in the park and all of them are awesome. You can take the roud going to the top of the mountain and see both the lakes - Prespa and Ohrid lake. The mountan is porous and the water from the Prespa lake goes through it and flows into the Ohrid lake. You can actually see this in the lake as a dark line flowing through. The springs at the bottom of the mountain can be reached only by a boat (without a motor, according to the park rules) and if possible, don't miss the chance to see the swans in their natural habitat. :)
