Trail around the spring in nature. It's peaceful and beautiful here being in nature. With a little luck, you can see some wildlife. Great place for photographs. I know they have a day tour from Ohrid, but it's rather expensive. I made friends with a local and paid him to take me here. It's an option.

Vevchani is a small village 2 x 20 minutes public bus trips from Ohrid (70 MKD each trip). The village is famous for its springs, traditional houses, hiking opportunities and history, such as the attempted declaration as an independent Republic and its special religious status under the Ottomans. There is a lovely riverside walk from springs around the town - see the photos below as the start and ends of the walk are easy to miss.

From Ohrid take the classic mini bus to Struga from near the intersection of Boulevard Touristic and Abaz Emin - every 15 minutes or so. Get off at St Petka Church stop (near hospital). Bus to Vevchani on the hour from that stop returning on the half hour.

Lunch by the rapids near the springs at Vo Izvor is recommended.

Place of serenity, you’ll walk away feeling peaceful and calm. There’s something unusual and expected about the place that leaves you feeling centred.

If you are spending more than a couple of days at the lake of Ohrid make sure to visit Mountain Village of Vevčani around 15 km from Struga and its springs. Park the car in the center (near bar Gossip or Harem) and follow the indications for St. Nicholas Church (worth a quick stop) and Vevčanski izvori (about 10 minutes' walk after the church - at the fork take the left road). With the sound of water gushing freely out of the rocks and flowing freely, you'll relax wandering along well maintained tracks with plenty of tables for picknicking. It makes me thinking of a miniature Plitvice lakes nature park in Croatia, minus the lakes and the crowds. If you feel hungry, there are several restaurants on the way, including one at the very entrance to the park.

This was amazing expedition for us into an area that we did not know, even though my wife lived in the country for all of her life until she was 20 it was extraordinary ,and gave a snapshot of the old Macedonia with beautiful scenery and surroundings !
there was a restaurant nearby where fish was available which was beautiful and fresh wonderfully cooked and nicely presented, and had a very very reasonable cost I loved it.

A short drive from Ohrid, the Vevchani springs are a delightful attraction. The stone pathway funded by The World Bank and the EU amongst others, makes a lovely walk up from the village. It is even nicer than in 1991 when I last visited.

You can buy teashirts, passports and currency at a little shop at the entrance too. The village Church of Sv Nikolas is worth visiting as well.

About a 30 min drive from Ohrid I would say worth a visit if you have car.

As you drive through the village you can either park, if you can find a space or head up out of village following the signs to the spring.

As you reach it you will see on the right the water and some steps, if you turn right there is some car parking spaces up there.

Come back down and head to the entrance which is 20 Mkd, it’s only a small attraction with some English narration boards which is helpful.

There is a good solid walkway around with plenty of picnic tables and benches. It’s only small but nicely done and a solid pathway around. There is however plenty of hiking options beyond the spring but do go prepared as the terrain is rough and unmarked but there appear to be some tracks.

Nestled in the mountains near Struga is the beautiful republic of vevcani....and if you find yourself in Struga you need to make the 20 minute trip to vevcani. It's a lovely village with clear water running in numerous streams, with beautiful flowers, snug into the mountains, and lovely old traditional Macedonian houses. My friends and I walked up to the springs and enjoyed the clear, clean water, the little hiking trails and the beautiful nature. Make sure you bring your camera!
