Ohrid

Jerusalem of the Balkans

Located on Lake Ohrid, the town of Ohrid earned the nickname Jerusalem of the Balkans because it was once home to 365 churches. This World Heritage Site also represents one of the oldest settlements in Europe. A scenic tourist destination, Ohrid features a welcoming historical district, a medieval castle, and an abundance of churches, including one that houses more than 800 Byzantine icons, many of which date back to the 11th century. Beyond its cultural attractions, the town has many alluring natural features, including mountains of the Galicica National Park and lakeshore beaches, which are most crowded during its summer festival.
