This is worth the effort of walking up from town. Not a great deal inside but its about the wall walks and the views. There is a small cafe located opposite the entrance that was very good for lunch.

We didn’t get to go inside. It was cool to see from the outside. There’s some beautiful views up there. We had coffee at the Fort Cafe. It was a cute cafe.

I visited this site and arrived just before they closed. It cost a tiny sum to enter the gate and climb the towers. For those who have been to Jerusalem and climbed David's Tower, it felt and looked almost the same..
It took a bit of trek up the hill to get there but it was worth it. The views on the way up was spectacular. It is one site I will highly recommend.

Amazing views over Ohrid. Well worth a visit. It's at the top of a hill so recommend getting a taxi up and then walking back down.

The fortress allows us to understand the historical importance of Ohrid. Quite a large territory is still available for public view, from it fantastic views of the town and lake are visible.
Outside the fortress there is a larger board with information of how the fortress was built and what has remained until nowadays.

Great views of the lake and surrounding area from up here and not expensive at all to get in. The climb isn't that bad for anyone with at least average fitness although it can be narrow in places where people stop to take pictures trying to squeeze by.

You get the best views of the Lake from here - once you climb up steep but safe steps in a number of places - but there isn’t much history or things to look at inside the fortress
