Via Egnatia Tour

The Via Egnatia was a road constructed by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. It crossed Illyricum, Macedonia and Thrace, running through territory that is now part of modern Albania, North Macedonia Greece and European Turkey as a continuation of Via Appia. Starting at Dyrrachium (now Durres) on the Adriatic Sea, the road followed a difficult route along the river Genusus (Shkumbin), over the Candaviae mountains and thence to the highlands around Lake Ohrid. It then turned south, following several high mountain passes to reach the northern coastline of the Aegean Sea at Thessalonica. From there it ran through Thrace to the city of Byzantium (later Constantinople, now Istanbul). It covered a total distance of about 1,120 km (696 miles/746 Roman miles). Like other major Roman roads, it was about six meters (19.6 ft) wide, paved with large polygonal stone slabs or covered with a hard layer of sand.

We were quite surprised to find this impressive little waterfall so close to the centre of town. You can walk behind it as well.

A beautiful series of waterfalls a the edge of the town, overlooking the valley. Make sure to go all the way down to the dams.

The waterfalls are magnificent. It is really stunning to watch the water falling so fast. However about the cave behind the waterfall, I don’t think it is worth the visit. It is very small and should be free. Although the ticket costs only 1€ it is still expensive compared to what you see.

Nice natural feature in the city. Don’t forget their is a second set of falls below the first ones as we liked those better. One can tour the cave behind the waterfall for a Euro and the tour takes one minute.
