  • The most famous park galicica Park located in Ohrid. Ohrid Lake and took us with preserved nature. Perfect for nature lovers. In monasteries, churches, statues, gift shops, cafes, restaurants. Also if you go to, you can enter the Lake getting pulled over. Boat trips, too.

  • Stunning views over Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa. We took the G6 trail which was clearly marked all the way, taking 2 hours up and 2 hours down - the signage was pretty accurate about the timings! We didn't spot much in the way of wildlife but the scenery was magnificent!
  • Excellent place... The view to Lake Ohrid and lake Prespa is magnificent
  • First class nature. One of the best sites for hiking, paragliding. And Ohrid lake needs no recommendation.
  • One of the more beautiful national parks in Macedonia, whether you are visiting in summer or winter, go and witness the natural beauty!
  • Highly recommended visiting if you're traveling around Macedonia. One of the most beautiful parks and national treasures you can visit.
