I was quite restless the day before leave because the hostel owner told me that there was a bus that cross the border with Albania at 2330 that leaves from Struga and runs to the albanian border northwards but i dislike so much this option so i find the best one running to the south.. i mean that there was a coach that follows the coastline direction sveti naum lake church almost in the southern part of the lake where is 2km further the border
The next morning i went on foot remembering this beautiful town meanwhile the sun was rising ( it was so cool and nice), nobody in the streets just me and some cats till i got the bus station... i laid down my backpack waiting for the bus... just then a man came to me and told me if i wanted to get out right now from there he was picking up people in his taxi to sveti naum per the same fare that the bus costed... i accepted ... we were 2 elder women , a man and me... the taxi followed the coastline as well and ended in sveti naum entrance... afterwards the driver brought to me to 100m before the border...
i crossed it before the customer make the stamp mark on my passport and 100m further there was the albanian flag fluttering on the air..
I HAD TO PAY 10 EUROS just to be european... pay much attention to the nationalities....cos maybe American have to pay 25 euros , Uk people 40 euros and japanese nothing !!! its absolutelly freak !! jajajjaja
once you have entered in Albania .....well it should be better if you read my Albanian pages lol !!
The only way to get to Ohrid town from any of several hotels along the lake shore is by taxi, since there is no other public trasnport available. At least in May! Maybe during the tourist season things change, but honestly, I don't think so. Taxi drivers don't charge by the meter. They charge 150 denars (2.5 euros) from the Metropol hotel to the town and vice versa. The charge is the same for other hotels as well, never mind that they are closer to the town.
