  • Ohrid is a favorite vacation spot. That's amazing. that even in a season. When in a lot of people. nobody bothers and doesn't give the impression the crowd. Good beaches, with free, we even more popular in the surrounding villages, and did only need 10 minutes, tasty food, comfortable water temperature. And ... the beauty around.
