Ohrid is the most famous Macedonian resort. It is a small town on the shores of a huge lake, surrounded from all sides by high mountains. The location is very picturesque and quite popular. The city and the lake are included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. If you arrive in Macedonia only for one day, spend it here.

Many hotels are located on the waterfront, which is very convenient. We stayed at City Palace Hotel (booking.com).

If you want to see the most beautiful view of the city, you need to go uphill towards the villages Ramne or Velestovo.

There are many beautiful places around Ohrid, but you need a car. For example the National Park Galicica, which can be reached by a scenic road along the lake.

Getting there: there is an airport, but it works, mainly in the summer. The main transport are buses: from Skopje 3.5 hours ($10). There are also buses from the Albanian Tirana to Struga city, then take a taxi.
