  • A must see for Ohrid, beautiful landscaped park with not pushy vendors who sell souvenirs. In addition, a well maintained Beach and a number of restaurants. Take the trouble to for a few dollars to do a boat trip on the crystal clear springs. Take a bottle of water and fill m with delicious natuurgezuiverd water. Also the St naum monastery is beautiful, but very touristy. The knee-doily is there to the heart of St Naum to hear knocking (if you want to believe the myth)

It is worth to see it! Bought OffRoad'owa organized the trip provided many experience!
