Ohrid is a beautiful place. I would definitely recommend going for a nice boat trip and a swim. It is great to dine at the lake, so when you are at it, go for Kaneo!

This is a magical place. The oligotrophic waters are always a bright, clear blue. Ancient churches and mosques stand side by side, unaffected by the years of Balkan conflicts. You won’t find a McDonalds or a large shopping mall. Half the city is old Byzantine-Ottoman,...More

It will cool down the further you go into October, but should be around 18-20c during the day and around 8-9c at night. Take an umbrella as you will probably have some cloudy weather and showers.
