“Breathtaking!!!”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

I was in Macedonia on a study trip to the SEEU for a couple of weeks. The college had arranged for a trip to Lake Ohrid on the penultimate day of the trip. And oh boy, I wish I was not coming back the next day. This place is full of wonders. I just fell in love with the changing colors of the placid lake hiding amidst the mountains. And the way to Ohrid from Tetovo (where I stayed) amongst the hills is so beautiful.
A little distance from the main lake is the old city of Ohrid which is another beautiful place to just walk around. The cities are dotted with tourist shops and the roads go up and down around the city and takes you up to the castle too.
Its an experience not to be missed.

“Magical waters”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

The freshest water you could wish to swim in, some of the most hospitable people on this puny planet of ours, surrounded by mountains and forests, great food and even greater booze. Lake Ohrid, a 'right great place like' as Alexander The Great was once heard screaming from the back of a dragon?

“A glory, even in midwinter”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Lake Ohrid, and the town of Ohrid, on its southern shore, surrounded by mountains, the Old Town climbing up the slopes towards the Castle, is a precious jewel of a town. The Romans didn't call it City of Light for no reason. The town itself, and the lakeside, are immaculately tended. I can't wait to come back in the summer.

But nothing here that would be on my 'cant be missed' list. Unless you're coming specifically for the lake of course.
