Although not the easiest destination to get to if you are looking for somewhere special to visit then this is it. With hundreds of years of history you can walk the lovely town and explore so many different little lanes and churches. The lake itself is at it's deepest 300 metres of fresh water,amazing to see and take a boat ride on a sunny day.

Excellent casual eating and make sure you have the Skopshka salad ,delicious and every restaurant makes it !

Make sure you visit St Petka church high up on the mountain and take in the views of this ancient city.Built in 1776 this is amazing.
The people are great and everything is really inexpensive.

This place is a gem tucked away in the Balkans. It is very beautiful and the people of Ohrid were quite friendly. I recommend that everyone visits Lake Ohrid.

Attractive lake with clear water and beautiful views. Walk the footpath up the hill above Ohrid for magnificent views across the lake.

As one of the five oldest in the world, you might think that it's not much. But the lake offers so much! There are so many places to see, and so many beaches that need to be visited. Each of them is unique, and offers a different view of the lake.
