Ohrid town is very colourful with flowering trees decorating the lakeside. A very nice place to sit in the park and view the activities around the lake. Lake Ohrid is the oldest lake in Europe and the water is so clean and clear.

If you like lakes then it is a beautiful place to visit. Not so great for swimming but definitely boating and walking! Ohrid is a great place to sip on a drink and watch the world go by!

My husband and I stayed here for 6 days and loved every minute. The scenery is beautiful and the old town, restaurants, boat trips, day trips and sightseeing meant that we had plenty to do for that time.

Good amount of sites to fill your day. Beautiful lake. Not overly touristy. Has a Mediterranean feel.

The lake is absolutely gorgeous. Banks are well arranged and looking as a tourist attraction. Never mind whether you walk through the main promenade or choose obe of the many pubs and waterfronts it is picturesque.

this place really is a hidden gem. The scenery, lake and historical sites are breathtaking, the atmosphere serene , it's commercial in that there are plenty of shops/bars,restaurants etc but doesn't feel commercialised. Lake Ohrid was all i expected but much, much more besides
