For potential investors...
I did not know should I laugh or should I cry when I saw the house on the picture and the sign on it. When you look on the condition of the house together it the sign that is for sale you get a fine example for anti-advertising...
Well, I guess if the price is good then it worths to invest in it. I saw a couple of abandoned houses like this one around Ohrid and I guess most of them were for sale. Most of those houses had a great view to the Ohrid lake, so it might be a good idea to buy them if not for restoring them, at least for the plot of land that you can use for building a new house.
Unfortunately, I did not have enough time to ask around if the prices are reasonable.
Spirit of Ohrid
This is a very interesting website about Ohrid with lots of information about the many churches, cultural sites, accomodation, museums, cuisine and events. And more....
Certainly very useful!
This coobled stone boulevard is the main street into the old town because there is another huge boulevard perpendicular to this where the coming bus from Skopje runs
All sort of things you can see here or buy it and some internet shops are installed... the southernmost end is the harbour and the lake and the other end is fullfill by the turkish quarter and the market
As a traditional Christian orthodox creation, the icon has a number of meanings, which focus on man as a central figure presenting him as the image of God. The holiness of the icons cannot be registered visually or expressed through words.
The icon serves the visualization of Christian truths. Numerous icon typologies have developed. Most icons are painted after certain samples and examples.
Centres of the icon painting are in Georgia, Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Armenia and Ethiopia. The frescos of the Moldavian Monasterie are in Romania of high importance.
You should read more about icons in Wikipedia (link here).
I have a special relation to that icons, therefore finding in my home some from Bulgaria, Scotland (yes)!and Greece... and now also from Ohrid. So sad, but no time to visit also the Icon Gallery in Ohrid. Maybe next time?
From Lake Ohrid to Lake Prespa
At St Naum, you can arrange for a cab to take you over the mountain (Galicica National Park) to Lake Prespa. Ask the driver to stop at the panorama points, the view on both lakes is magnificent.
A good stopping point is the little chapel of St George, on top of the mountain, see the pictures.
From a certain point, you can see both lakes. You'll have to walk up the mountain with the electricity pylons, see here.
St Naum can be reached by road or boat from Ohrid. St Naum itself and the springs that feed Lake Ohrid are also worth while visiting.
