They think that you are a naive stranger from a big city and that they can rip you off over literally anything! How cheap, stupid, and narrow-minded these orangutans are is way above my head. Thank you God for your providence!
This is the most gorgeous lake I've ever seen. Best would be if you could start from Pogradec(Albania) and head your way towards Ohrid town. Do take your time to stop on several stops to take great photos. If anyone told me this perfect blue...More
One among 365 breathtaking churches of Ohrid. There is one for every day in a year, they say. I believe the. It's not only its beauty that's worth a visit, but a road to get there is an even more amazing experience. Worth every sweating...More

Lake Ohrid is a wonderful place to visit in Macedonia. Unfortunately the weather at the time of our visit was not hot enough to swim as the lake was very cold.
Next time I travel to Macedonia, I will be sure to stay in Orhid...More

I'm glad this place is still not fully packed with tourists from all around the world, because it would lose most of what makes it special. There are a lot of restaurants and places to stay just around great part of the lake. The chill...More

Several boats are available. They can be taken as you arrive there; they were soliciting our business. I don't know whether they take reservations. I am not sure whether they are as easily available during the busier summer.
Hi, I will spend a week in Split from Sept 4-11, 2015 then I will rent a car and would like to drive to Lake Ohrid in Macedonia. Can this drive be done in one day? What is the quickest route?

The quickest route is along the coast through Montenegro and Albania. However, I think you will not find a rental agency that will rent you a car to get there without a huge fee, particularly if you intend to drop-off in Macedonia. You can do it in one day, a long long day, something like 10-ish hours.
Is it safe to travel as a solo female in Albania? (3 Replies)
I am planning a trip to the region in October and I'm trying to decide if Lake Ohrid is worth the trip through Albania. I've read mixed reviews online, but most of the information I have found is 2-4 years old. Any tips would be helpful. Thanks!

Hello, It is safe to travel but in Albania just be mindful of people staring at you, that is the only thing that would happen. People on the whole are generally lovely and if you need help they will try their best to assist you. Whatever info you have read is irrelevant YOU MUST go to Lake Ohrid. It is one of the most spectacular places in the region and you will not regret it. You can easily get to Ohrid from Berat with direct bus connections.
Elbasan/Tirana to Berat? (19 Replies)
Hi there. I'll be traveling in the Balkans next month; unfortunately, I'm having difficulties planning my trip from Lake Ohrid (Macedonia) to Berat (Albania). My current understanding is that there are are two possible routes: Lake Ohrid (Macedonia) - (a) Elbasan / (b) Tirana - Berat Going via Tirana is easier but it takes longer. I've read somewhere that there is no bus departing from Elbasan to Berat; furgon is the option. Is that true? I also worry about not being able to find...More

Wow! I didn't know about this website. I'll be coming from Ohrid. Looks like I'll have to go to Tirana first and then do a day trip in berat the next day. Thank you very much for your useful info!
