  • Ohrid is the beautiful nature and wonderful city blessed with culture from the middle ages. Apologies to Skopje is high as the heavens and the Earth. Lake Ohrid is also attractive high transparency. Lake surrounded by high mountains from Lake views from Lake City of red roofs and white walls. Sveti Naum 2 go with either of her look at cruise ship. The little trouble climbing was the best Samuel fortress and St. John at kaneo Church views.
