My family really enjoyed this and took lots of pictures. We enjoyed a boat ride to get here. When we think of Ohrid or Macedonia we remember this

The church itself is tiny, but really you go for the view - both of the lake and of the outside of the church. Take a water taxi back to town if you've walked enough. You'll also get great photos from the boat. There is a nominal charge to enter the church

So beautiful and tiny. The views are awesome, very nice and paceful. A bit hard to find it, but if you ask to anyone you could find it soon.

We came twice - once during the day and at sunset. This church makes for beautiful pictures by Lake Ohrid. We didn't go inside but climbed the steps for an aerial view of the church and took some great photos.

This place probably is most photographed in Ohrid. Nice place to see the view of this church with the lake back. Good only in good day/

To see the church lit up in the evening is wonderful but the view during the day is the picture post card of Ohrid. Once you have been walk down to the beach for some great restaurants and bars.
