A tour that will take you to one of the most interesting destinations of Balkans <br>Ohrid town, This town is North Macedonia's most seductive destination. It sits on the edge of serene Lake Ohrid, with an atmospheric old quarter that cascades down steep streets, dotted with beautiful churches and topped by the bones of a medieval castle. Famous for its lake and architecture. <br>At the same time you will visit Lin, a small peninsula softly joins the shores of Lake Ohrid. It was once called “Lake of Light” perhaps because the light of both the sun and the moon wholly illuminate its surface year-round. Indeed, this lake’s reflections are legendary! Hundreds of locals reside in this small but beautiful peninsula. As you descend the road to get there, you will notice the beautiful red roofs of its characteristic small homes. <br><br>Guided Tour <br>Albania and Macedonia <br>Ohrid Lake and Town <br>St Naum Monastery <br>Lin village Pogradec Albania <br>Customized tour ( you can customize this tour )

Although heavily popularized in recent years, the Bay of the Bones Museum probably needs no advertisement. It hides an amazing story of thousands of years long settlement, which has been found deep in the Ohrid Lake. Numerous artefacts have been dug in the last two decades, while the nearly-resembeling recreation of the authentic-looking village of the times when it used to be lively and prosperous. The Museum does not offer many background inofrmation, but the archeological heritage amassed through years is very much worth seeing! All in all, if you're visiting Ohrid, make sure not to miss this amazing place, especially if you're a fan of early human history and archeology!

The museum is small but you will learn something new. The Roman castle offers a great view of the lake and the surrounding area. The entrance ticket is 100 mkd for adults and only 30 mkd for children.

This place is in vicinity of the famous camping and summer site Gradishte, on the Ohrid lake riviera. This is monument of at least 5000 years of continuous culture in Ohrid region!

This is a recreation based on artifacts found beneath the site. Entry cost is 100 denar. There are several pelts of fox, bear, sheep and goat. The history is interesting, but the site itself is quite mundane. If it were not for the docent to explain everything I would not have known what was so special.

It’s worth a visit. Especially for the crystal clear water. And the colour of the water was magical. Because it’s a replica, it’s not really breathtaking. But if you’re visiting St Naum it’s just on the way a nice pitstop.
