About
Ohrid is one of the most seductive destinations in N. Macedonia, indicated as one of the oldest human settlements in all of Europe. Ohrid city and Ohrid Lake are part of UNESCO World Heritage since 1980.The Lake was named by the Romans as “Lyhnidas” (the Light Lake). Ohrid became an important centre for the Orthodox believers during the Byzantine Empire and is famous for its 365 Orthodox churches, said to have one church for each day of the year. During the Ottoman Empire the city grew on the hills and surrounding areas by the lake. The houses were built with a very specific architecture that created narrowed streets, tunnels and tiny yards on the hilly terrain, making it possible for every house to have a good view of the lake. Today the city is famous for its architecture, the churches, the castle on the top of the city, the amphitheatre, the beautiful view of the lake surrounded by mountains and the pearls from the lake.

A perfect day trip adventure from Tirana to meet the neighbour, Macedonia
Aug 2021
Ohrid is one of the most picturesque and charming towns I have ever seen. We took a hike up the beautiful cobblestone streets winding up the hill to look out over the stunning Lake Ohrid, strolled through the city park and spotted the turtles sunning and eating berries, overlooked the most famous view of Ohrid, ate some ice cream... Just a regular day in Ohrid. We continued our drive around the entire lake to enjoy a delicious dinner back in Pogradec, Albania.

Ohrid has a great history to tell the visitors, lot of museums, churches, castle.
We loved Lake Ohrid - it's a really special place that is drop-dead gorgeous, has lots to see and do nearby, and has a good vibe. From the cafes beside the lake and lakeside footpath, through to the gorgeous old town, it's all very lovely. Strongly recommend a day trip if you are in Albania.
