I planned on going to Ohrid for a long time but somehow the road has always taken me in another direction. What a mistake! Beautiful lake with superb surroundings, very authentic old town and lots to see around it. A must go, stay and see.

We stayed for just one night. But made a complete tour around and were most impressed of the rich collection of ancient churches. Local pearls and fine dining possibilities. A fine place certainly to return

A beautiful lake with lots of historical sights. The nearby National Park - Galichica covers a vast area with lots of fauna and wildlife. The local Macedonians we found to be very friendly and welcoming. Even the stray dogs were friendly.

We stayed at Villa Rustica which was lovely, fantastic views on the hill overlooking the lake and very close to visit the fortress and various churches. The owner was very friendly and it was extremely clean.
