“Ohrid Lake is an amazing place”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

I visited Ohrid in late October a this year. Had a brilliant time, with lovely bright days. You won't be sunbathing but all the historical sites & activities are open without the queues and crowds.

“Lovely Place”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Ohrid Lake is one of the best place in Macedonia, especially in Summer time. Normally in winter, very calm and cute place, only locals living and some tourists, mostly from different cities in the country. But when the summer begins, oh my god! Totally crazy, everybody here for fun, a lot of clubs, beaches, fully crowded!
You must see here if you have time..

“Charming place”
Reviewed November 2, 2013 via mobile

The weather is perfect (Nov 2), the summer crowds are gone, its beautiful, peaceful, lots of place for a stroll, old buildings, very old churches, nice cobblestone streets, many little shops. I'm here solo but I think it would be a nice place for a honeymoon or for romantic getaway. You can also take a small or large boat trip on the lake.

“The most beautiful lake on the Balkans”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Ohrid Lake is an amazing place to visit. Besides all the touristic attractions of a beach, Lake Ohrid has to offer much more. Around lake Ohrid, you can visit hundreds of churches dating from medieval or older times. There is a monuments trail which takes you thru all churches and monuments surrounding the lake. Take a small boat first to Sv. Jovan Kaneo and then start walking up the trail. I strongly recommend this place for couples, families and even business excursions.

“A Lake stay”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Love the serenity of strolling the lake promenade and the eateries in the area. Local Macedonian food is good and you must try the local trout with a bottle of Stobi wine as this a very enjoyable experience !
