    Ohrid Things to Do

    This Church was built in the first half of the 10th century. It is situated in the upper part of Ohrid, near the Gate. The belongings of St. Clement were transferred to this church from the previous church St. Panteleimon, which was burned and converted into a mosque by the Turks. The most important treasures of the church are the old...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    It's a deep and ancient lake, perhaps as old as five million years. Few lakes are as old as that. It's the deepest in the Balkans, and if you placed the Eiffel Tower at its deepest point, once the world's tallest structure, its tallest point would just poke out above the water. The lake is so big, deep and isolated that it has its own weather...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    When I titled this tip "You really shouldn't miss it" I actually meant it in both senses of the phrase. Physically, you shouldn't miss it as it completely dominates the city sat atop the large mount to the West of town and you shouldn't miss it as it is a wonderful place to visit with superb views over the city and the lake. I refer, of course, to...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    On the south-east side of Lake Ohrid, close to the border with Albania, you will find the Monastry of St Naum. It is a really stunning site, on a cliff high above the lake. Clement (840-916) and Naum (835-910) were native Macedonians. Both had been disciples of the brothers Kiril and Metodi, the inventors of the Glagolitic and Cyrillic...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    St. Jovan Theologian Kaneo is by no means the largest church we visited in Ohrid but it's exquisite position on a bluff overlooking the lake and it's delightful architectural form make it one of my favourites. The building predates the mid 15th century although the exact date is unknown and is apparently a mixture of Byzantine and Armenian styles....

    Ohrid Things to Do

    I waited until it was open and then paid the ticket and visited for one hour or so. Pictures inside where forbidden, but since I did not know I just took one, and when I was reprimanded I stopped making more pictures.

    Ohrid Things to Do

    Build around 200 BC, just over 2000 years old. In use again during the summer for outdoor concerts and performances. Take a close look at the seats to see if you can read who owned the seat 2000 years ago! The antique theatre first was in use as a theatre in which tragedies, comedies and other plays were performed. During Roman times, the theater...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    The old part of Ohrid is a wonderful experience. The whole area, including the lake, is a World Heritage Site protected by UNESCO. Just wandering around the old cobbled streets as they wind up and down the hillside along the lake shore. There are some great old buildings dotted about, and you'll catch great views of the lake poking through the gaps...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    The St Clement´s Monastery Church, finished in 2002, is dedicated to Saints Clement and Pantelejmon. Close to the new church are the ruins of the monastery school that Clement built on the ruins of the early 5th-century basilica at Plaosnik. He even had built his own tomb into the church, in which he was buried in 916. Almost 150 graves found at...

    Ohrid Things to Do

    Heading south from the fortress, towards the lake, you will come to an excavation area. This is where the church of Sv. Pantelejmon once stood. It was built in a trefoil form, probably during the 5th century, on top of an earlier building. Mosaics have been preserved in the central part and in the baptistery. They are now sheltered by a roo

    This stately building on top of the hill can be seen from many places in Ohrid. It is located to the right of Tsar Samoil's fortress and next to the church of Sveti Bogorodica Perivleptos. In the past we were told that it had some kind of administrative function. When we visited in 2012 after a renovation, it was written above the entrance that...
