Just below the fort this theatre offers some nice views across the lake and would have been spectacular in its day. Today it's a bit tired and needs some tlc. Some conservation work has obviously been undertaken but like most other places we have visited...More

It’s not amazing, and far from something which has to be seen, but it’s still nice to stand in the middle of the amphitheater and imagine what history has seen here. We took thirty minutes or so out to just sit in the ancient stand...More

Only go see if it's on your way to somewhere else. It's a Helenistic amphitheater that has been majorly rebuilt rather than restored. The stage could do with a bit of TLC, I have no idea how people don't break a leg on that floor...More

Yes it is easy to get to and not far from the main street, but there is nothing really here to see, plus there can be drunk men talking very loud

This is on the road uphill to the fortress, and worth a stop. The seating is cool and the acoustics still work. I'd love to go to a concert there!

At the heart of the old town, you can visit this theatre with stage for Ohrid culture summer. A sweet part of architecture at the pedestrian road around the old town!
