Ohrid is the most beautiful city I've seen so far. The Ohrid lake is not the cleanest nor the largest, but the view from it towars the city, and the view from the city towards the lake are breathtaking. With sunsets, these views gain a certain melancholy. The city is stretched on the hills, standing above and around the lake... More

This country really is a hidden Gem. The people are beautiful and friendly. The food is second to none. The wine is some of the best in the world and Lake Ohrid is magical.

I liked it but somehow I expected more... It was a little dirty and the hotels weren't that nice. Anyway the view was amazing and the castle was beautiful too

Natural, clean and beautiful lake with old town makes Ohrid lake very unique and a reason to take a turn and visit this beauty. Beaches along the coast on the way to st.Naum monastery are special for numerous reason. Infrastructure isn't keeping pace with potential but nevertheless it would be a shame to miss it.
