After a drive of 28 km on a motorcycle we arrived at this beautiful location on the other side of the lake. The peacocks are really cool and the springs are very nice!

Absolutely loved the view. Unfortunately it rained but I was dying to go on boat along the lake. The restaurant we ate at was phenomenal as you could see them braai/BBQ the meat. Absolutely Devine.

Excellant monastery on the shores of the lake. Sadly massively over run by tourists. Still worth the trip. But be warned.

Nice little monastery, peacocks wandering around - even had one of them flashing his feathers. Tranquil setting on the row boat trip on the spring lake. Charming locations for the restaurants, although we didn't eat. Great bathing location as well.

The area itself is nice, nice little spring lake and nice views over Ohrid lake. But there is not much else to see. There is a huge hotel and a lot of tourist stalls inside the area. Very touristy. And what bothered me very much...More

We don't know but we know a man who would, he is a tour guide and Prof of Tourism in Ohrid if you want we can contact him and ask him to contact you. If any body could arrange it we are sure he could. Good Luck anyway.
