We recently discovered a place where we would like to move. It is about Lake Ohrid in the town of Ohrid that winds through the mountains in southeastern Macedonia and eastern Albania. The stretch of water has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the oldest lakes in Europe. The closer you get to Ohrid, the more beautiful it is! The gray blocks are left behind to welcome you to the picturesque houses, specific to the Ottoman culture.
Lake Ohrid is one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, home to over 200 species of fish and is located at an altitude of 700 meters. Lake Ohrid seems to be a sea, its surface is quite large, occupying 358 square kilometers and has a depth of 288 meters. An impressive aspect is related to the age of the old lake, over 5 million years old.
The town of Ohrid where the lake of the same name is located is an authentic one, a small mountain settlement, with an impressive architecture and amazing surroundings. The Macedonian city can be an ideal holiday destination for any tourist. A night of accommodation on the shores of Lake Ohrid reaches somewhere around 20 euros, which is too little for the natural wonder.
Once in the port do not miss a trip on Lake Ohrid, tourists have at their disposal various pleasure boats. It is a very pleasant way to see all the attractions in the city. Include a hike to the highest point in the city, because on the top of a hill was built the main landmark of Ohrid, the Church of St. John.
At a distance of 15 kilometers is the Gulf of Bones Museum, where visitors can choose between land and water tourism. Here you will find a unique archaeological complex in the region! You can see prehistoric dwellings discovered and rebuilt by specialists.
Ohrid is one of the most remarkable cities due to the diversity, hospitality and atmosphere.
