Ohrid is a small city in southern Macedonia and is situated on Lake Ohrid. Two-thirds of this lake belongs to Macedonia while the other third belongs to Albania. Ohrid is a very picturesque city of approx. 40,000 residents. Nestled along the hillside there are numerous Orthodox churches, Samuil’s Fortress, an old amphitheatre and numerous streets to get lost in. The small port offers tours to the Monastery of St Naum (across the lake, near Albanian border) or around the Ohrid area. With the sun shining on the dark turquoise blue waters I enjoyed my stay in this lovely area of Macedonia.
