It's a pretty small fortress, there's not really a great deal to see, but I still enjoyed walking along the stone walls and looking out across the town and the lake. Entrance fee is very cheap so it's definitely worth a visit.

The place is nice but you’ll get extra charged if you are a foreigner because why not. The view is nice though there’s some church construction going on nearby that destroyed the roman ruins (criminal thinking imo). Decent panorama tho but zero effort to attract tourists

This was a really interesting site with a long history, however there is not 1 sign to tell you any information which is a real shame. The views are lovely and it's easy to find. I would like to see money being spent on this site to improve it as it's an important and facinating attraction. No toilet facilities.

Well, Fortress with nothing else... Great view over Ohrid and the Lake... must see and visit. Put it on your list and spend few euros for good foto shooting

A historical place in the city of Orhid with excellent view at the lake. Under the castle is the old city.
