Beautiful place, beautiful of the lake. You can walk around a village that stands on Timber frames. This is how the people lived thousand of years ago. They also have a object that they found in the sea. Nice to see.

The place is very impressive. You can walk around houses located over the water, that replicate people's live of thousands of years ago. The beauty of the surronding lake complements the picture. An absolute must see in Ohrid!

We only got to explore the place during a boat trip for half an hour, but we feel like we got the gist of it during that stay. It is a charming construction, the rebuilt waterside village, but apart from the little museum and the...More
