Ohrid's old city gate and neat cobble streets are very interesting and fun to walk and explore. Spent a good half day exploring and enjoyed it very much. Had a Lake side lunch.

This well preserved gate still serves as one of the main entrances into the old town of Ohrid. Nice to walk through and for a quick photo. Free.
