It is a glorious lake , quiet , clear pristine water. There are a number of boat operators providing trips. It is really a good place near the lake during summer.

I don't know why, but ohrid is one of my favourite townin europe. I really want to go there again for a peaceful and comfortable holiday. The town is inexpensive and you can find lots of hotels by the lake. some beaches are not so clean that you touch moss, which is not a desirable experience for me. but my... More

Natural, clean and beautiful lake with old town makes Ohrid lake very unique and a reason to take a turn and visit this beauty. Beaches along the coast on the way to st.Naum monastery are special for numerous reason. Infrastructure isn't keeping pace with potential but nevertheless it would be a shame to miss it.

Take a boat ride, swim at secluded coves, walk around it or just spend your afternoon like the locals gazing at this beautiful lake.

Lake Ohrid is a beautiful lake with many attractions along it's shores. It is worth spending a few days exploring the many sites of interest, such as Ours itself, Struga, and the monastery of St Naum.

Was concerned that visiting Ohrid in snowy January might be a bit hit and miss but I have to say it was a super time to visit. The lake looks amazing with the snowy mountains around it and the lack of tourists made it feel intimate and made me feel like I was one of the locals. Loads of restaurants... More

Very clean lake with the beautiful surroundings where You can visit amazingplaces. Worth to mention, that you can book a trip by boat around the lake, or just to special places (it was amazingexperience). The boater will tell You interesting stories and probably will give You to taste local grappa. Also, it is worth to know, that the part of... More

Beautiful and very special lake, makes you feel like you are at sea instead of a lake. Macedonia has been new to us, but did not dissapoint
