Stunning views across to Albabia. Great birdwatching - pygmy cormorants, hooded crows, jays. Lovely place.

“History and Nature”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

- Preparation: A local guide is useful. The city is rich in picturesque houses and monuments.
- Location: Nice. The city provides an excellent base for visiting Galicica National Park, the remarkable monastery of Sveti Naum and Struga town.
- Lake and mountains view: Amazing from Samuil's Fortress.
- A boat tour of the lake: It is really enjoyable.
- Duration of stay: Three days.
- Food: Delicious grilled trout from the lake and burek (cheese pie).
- Prices: Affordable.

- Recommendation 1: You have the opportunity to stay at some restored traditional houses.
- Recommendation 2: It is better to visit the area in June or September when it is less crowded and even cheaper.

- Would I come back there?: Yes.

“The best lake in the World”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

This is the best lake in the World. The water is clean and also you can see the bottom. I am a licensed scuba diver and this lake is always full with surprises. The last dive was this September at Gradiste beach. I found an old toolbox full with tools, old lighter, anchor, and the best HAND GRENADE from WW2. The temperature can be little cold like 22 degrees in September but this is not that important what this lake can offer you. Also there are lot of fish but you can see big enough if you diving at night.

“Amazing lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2013

Quite strange to describe this lake because almost everything in Ohrid and neighbourhood is related with this lake. Being there take a boat. Not big but small from local captain. There are many of them near main promenade. We have done this and it was one of the most funny days in our lifes. I will never forget this day- we have been smiling and getting fun for many hours. Low price and litre of rakija for free :)
