When our guide offered us a trip about the Monastery and its surroundings, I thought to myself a church, like side, souvenir shops, cafes etc. But, the biggest issue (and the treasure) is too see the biggest water source that feed the Lake Ohrid. That...More

The flowers and butterflies when you walk through the peaceful meadows to the springs were wonderful and the little churches on the way were lovely. We even saw a Balkan lizard orchid!

Had been to the monastery once already and wasn't in a hurry to return, but my (new-ish) husband wanted to see it. Ok, so we went. The monastery itself makes for nice photos and you can get a few stunning views from the hill of...More

You can get to the monastery by car or by boat (from Ohrid) ; we got our guide to drive us up, then took the boat back - probably the best of both worlds. The site is extremely busy with tourists and has been exploited...More

There is nothing there to see. Waste of time. The hotel restaurant on site is to avoid. The boatride out was the better part.

One of the most famous monasteries at Lake Ohrid, the Church has some lovely old frescoes. Very popular with tourists, the monastery caters for them well. Plenty of facilities available. Commercialised but tastefully so and welcoming.

We walked over the Albanian border to Saint Naum, about a 40 minute walk including border controls & 30 minutes back via a shortcut. Perfect way of visiting for us & cheaper than getting a Green Card etc. On our walk there we visited another...More

This is a location you must visit if you are in the vicinity of Lake Ohrid. There's a cheap parking lot, a few restaurants and many souvenir shops. I was surprised to see how small the monastery is, but it's a beautiful building and the...More

I visited in July, and there were stalls near the lake and center where you could take a boat to St Naum for 10-20 euros (return). We booked a driver through the apartment we were staying at. I would recommend speaking to... More

We don't know but we know a man who would, he is a tour guide and Prof of Tourism in Ohrid if you want we can contact him and ask him to contact you. If any body could arrange it we are sure he could. Good Luck anyway.
