    The Biljana Izvori (Biljana Springs) are one of the springs that feed Lake Ohrid. Many songs and legends are written about these springs. The water is very clean and drinkable, you will see many people filling up plastic bottles at the springs.

    At St Naum there are more springs that can be visited by boat or by land.

    The Biljana Springs can be reached if you walk down Quay Marsal Tito from the center of Ohrid and turn left before the high bridge. They are close to the petrol station on the roundabout, just before you leave Ohrid via the road to St Naum.

    The water from the springs enters the lake, and leaves the lake again via the river Crni Drim in the village Struga.

    Biljana's springs

    This is the place where poetry and reality become one. A beautiful girl, Biljana, from a famous poem used to wash her clothes at these springs. Today, there is a nice restaurant at this place where one can enjoy beautiful nature and the sound of water coming out of the ground.

    There is a very popular macedonian song, what says that a girl Biljana (Bilyana) was washing white fabric in the Springs of Ohrid Lake. Now the springs are named Biljana.
