The lake is very unique and the water is very clean. People say that the water is cold but I didn't find that to be the case, I thought it was just nice and refreshing. Loved the 5 days my wife and I spent there and we will definitely be back in the future.

I don't know what I was expecting but this exceeded it. It's a beautiful lake and the town is lovely too. We just spent a night in Ohrid but it would be nice to spend a little longer. The water is really clean and the scenery is beautiful. Well worth visiting.

Very relaxing and quaint town. Great for a weekend trip or longer. Make sure you have enough time to take a day trip to Monastery of Saint Naum.

Large lake surrounded by high mountains with historical town Ohrid on the north end. Clear water, which looks like mediterrian, but no salt in the water. Good for swiming or kayaking. Still some remote beaches where you can be alone.

The lake is beautiful and nice to swim in or even get a pedal'o. There are many towns around the lake worth visiting such as Lagadin, Struga etc. You can also travel to the Albanian part if you wanted to!

Beautiful lake and nature around it! Extremely clean water, it is also nice to take a short boat trip to enjoy the sights. We stayed at a place next to the lake, so we were able to enjoy some beach time and swimming as well. Great experience!

For those of you who have never heard of Lake Ohrid before (like myself) this lake enormous and beautiful, Ohrid itself it basically centered around it and once you see it for yourself you will see why. The lake is so big you will mistake it for an ocean but it is a freshwater lake and during summer it makes... More
