The setting above the lake is quite beautiful. Interestingly you have access to the terrace and surrounds for free however the church itself is 100md - with such a great view we did not bother to go inside.

The walk to Hovan Kaneo is wonderful. On the way you alk along the waterline of the lake, which is a beautiful sight. The church itself looks great and makes for brilliant pictures, with the lake Ohrid in the backdrop. Recommended.

It is my favorite place in all of Ohrid. It's isolated from the downtown of the city and it's very peaceful and quiet - especially in the morning hours. Wonderful view of the lake as well.
