    Brajcino Things to Do

    The Monastery of St Petka is from the 16th century.It does not have a monastery function anymore, but was renovated to accommodate visitors. Unfortunately, we were told it was full when we wanted to book it, although it seemed deserted when we got there to visit the church.It must be a wonderful and peaceful experience though to stay here.

There are more water plants though, and the bottom is more muddy than the...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Church of St George is close to the village Kurbinovo.

    The modest, single naved building was built in 1191. Many of the frescoes are rather well conserved. One of the frescoes even is depicted on the banknote of 50 Denar!

    Before you go to the church, you should get the key at one of the houses on the left of the road. This house has a sign with a key in red paint on its gate, see the pictures.

    Just continue the same road until you reach the church.

    To see pictures of the inside of the church, follow the link below to my Kurbinovo Travelogue.

    Nakolec Things to Do

    The caretaker of the churches St Nikola and St Atanas in Nakolec told us that there was an imprint of the foot of King Marko just before the border with Greece.Indeed, just between the barrier and the police station, there is a small monument and a stone with a foot-like imprint. I believe the police station is also called Markova Noga.It seems...

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Access to this reserve is difficult, especially if you're a casual visitor and would like to see some of the birds of Lake Prespa without making formal arrangements. Unlike Ohrid, Prespa has some interesting species, things like Pygmy Cormorant, Black-necked Grebe, pratincoles and various herons and terns. But of most interest would be the Dalmatian Pelicans. Forget the village of Ezerani, the reserve can be reached from the village of Asamati, near Pretor. There are a couple of rustic, raised hides which give slightly distant views of the birds. Depending on the time of day (or luck), the north end of the beach at Pretor itself can be good. Alternatively, from the road along the north / north-west shore of the lake, it is possible to see pelicans sitting on the water at fairly close range.

    Asamati Things to Do

    Asamati is located not far from the park of Ezerani. Go down to the riverside and walking to the right you will find some towers for birdwatching.If you walk about 500m to the left, you will find a stage to go into the water. But better not on a day the wind comes from the right. It smelled like waste water. And there was a little snake waiting...

    Asamati Transportation

    In other cities, they may explain you vainly from where the bus comes and where it ends, but never know about buses from other bus stations not going to the same.But there ARE buses to the Prespa lake! It seems recommendable to plan the trip from monday to friday, because there are more buses. One of the guys selling tickets in Resen speaks...
