Beautiful church in a remote setting. From the port of Ohrid it is a nice stroll along the lake to arrive to this church. If you want to snap pictures from above the church (an image featured in most articles on Macedonia and lake Ohrid)...More

It's the shot used in all the promotional materials for Ohrid and understandably so. The view across the lake is truly spectacular, with the small church in the foreground. Well worth the short walk from the centre and then a quick scramble up to the...More

If can find the beach trail along the lake side that leads up to this church, you're in for a wonderful treat! They've built a wooden promenade that hugs the cliff side. The last hike up quite a few steps is definitely worth it to...More

This picturesque church is perched on the cliffs above Lake Ohrid, in the Macedonian town of the same name. You can't go inside. It's a short uphill walk up to it, along good although rough paths. Carry on up a short but steep path past...More

It was very quiet when we visited. Its position is fairy tale like, perched above Kaneo. Just took a seat near it and marvelled at Lake Ohrid. We walked from Ohrid along the over water walkway to Kaneo and then up the steps. A great...More

This small church is probably the most photographed place in all of Macedonia, but it's all about the location really. The church is located on a headland that gives 180 degree views of the lake and back towards town. As there is a fee of...More

Добрый день! я вчера 22/09/2016 вернулась из охрид. вход в эту церковь платный. но за вами из служителей церкви никто не будет бегать, если вы не заметили надпись о платном входе)) да и если честно цены за входные билеты везде прмиерно одинаковые.. около 100 динар (112 руб). те кто продают билеты, даже не следят за посетителями. повторю там можно и не заметить, что вход платный.
