A tour that will take you to one of the most interesting destinations of Balkans <br>Ohrid town, This town is North Macedonia's most seductive destination. It sits on the edge of serene Lake Ohrid, with an atmospheric old quarter that cascades down steep streets, dotted with beautiful churches and topped by the bones of a medieval castle. Famous for its lake and architecture. <br>At the same time you will visit Lin, a small peninsula softly joins the shores of Lake Ohrid. It was once called “Lake of Light” perhaps because the light of both the sun and the moon wholly illuminate its surface year-round. Indeed, this lake’s reflections are legendary! Hundreds of locals reside in this small but beautiful peninsula. As you descend the road to get there, you will notice the beautiful red roofs of its characteristic small homes. <br><br>Guided Tour <br>Albania and Macedonia <br>Ohrid Lake and Town <br>St Naum Monastery <br>Lin village Pogradec Albania <br>Customized tour ( you can customize this tour )

Very well preserved and maintained attraction, in the hart of the old city of Ohrid. It is worth spending all your free time on exploring church life of previous centuries.

If you can book a place for some of the music concerts during the Ohrid summer festival, you will understand what I mean.

This church has great historical significance. During the occupation of the Ottomans of Ohrid, they converted this church into a mosque by covering most of the murals & and the church walls into white wall. However, when the Ottaman Empire fell, it was re-converted back into a church and the white walls was taken out and to the surprise of the residents most of the murals below it remain intact.

Saint Sophia is a small church in the heart of the old city of Ohrid. It is attractive, particular the frescos and paintings inside. The church is 1000 years old. Just take that in for a moment. Entrance fee is just 100 Denars or €2.
