  • I had great hiking experience. Galichica is very beautiful, and you can see the two lakes at the top. Beautiful view.
  • This place is beautiful and save to go with family
  • С. Шипокно. Прекрасно место за спокој во природа со поглед на Охридско Езеро
  • Lovely place IUCN category, very rich with endemic flora and fauna. Too bad the NP and local rengers are complete jerks and know nothing about it. At least at the time, approx a year ago the management has changed hopefully they will understand what they have in their backyards in order to protect it before it gets too late. Highly reccomended for hiking, climbing, paragliding and mountbiking.
  • Its a lovely place to go with you're family
