When I go to a thing called a museum I am expexting to get to know smth about the place. But no, not here. I wouldn't even call it a museum since they did nothing more than to put in a ticket office there and create some path ways to walk on. It is a nice view from up there, for sure, but I would have liked to get to know the place a bit.

It was a rainy and cold day at the end of March but still the visit was worth it. You get an impression of how this little town once was "the center of the world". The old town around it is also extremely nice with plenty of good resaturants.

The view from the walls is spectacular and you can walk on most of the inside and peak out through the jagged top. But inside this she'll there is almost nothing to see. Some excavations have been done, but there is no signage that I could see.

In fact, the most imposing view might be from below, when you see the
towering walls on top of the hill and the Macedonian flag moving gently in the breeze.

The view from the towers is great - you can see a 360 panorama of Ohrid. There isn't anything else to see in the castle itself, but a number of stunning views justified the entry fee.
