All reviews great view old town narrow steps up hill highest point entrance fee worth the climb upper gate ohrid town worth the effort nice walk enjoy the view view of the lake walls information macedonia telescope
Ohrid is a great place to spend some time---beautiful lake, friendly people, good restaurants, and a laid back atmosphere. Whether you want to make Tsar Samoil's Fortress a major stop on your itinerary is another question. You can definitely get some nice views of town...More
The fortress itself is quite nothing but the views to all directions are just great.
I wouldn't go there with small children, who already walk themselves, because it would be too hard to carry them there but there is also too steep and narrow steps...More
This fortress offers amazing panorama views of the lake, and the breeze was quite welcomed after a long hike uphill. It was 60MKD for foreigners, but again worth it. I loved seeing the views from above - it gives a good layout of the area.
After walking around the old town, at the top, you can visit the old fortress and see Ohrid from above! Entrance is very inexpensive, around 1€ per adults! At this place you can spend few minutes and take a few photos!
