    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)

    The National Park of the Republic of Macedonia may not enchants with greenery, but is a great place to ... Offroad! At the beginning of the eye has stunning views of the Ochrydę and Lake Ohrid! The aim of the tour is getting to the point, which overlooks the Lake Prespa, which lies within the borders of three countries-of course, Macedonia and Albania and Greece. This view is breathtaking! It is worth to see it! Bought OffRoad'owa organized the trip provided many experience!

  • Beautiful place to go and hike. Was a lot of fun. But have to drive there for sure
  • Breathtaking views! It was really good decision to hike over 10 km up. You can admire a gorgeous Orhid lake and totally relax. Silence over there was kind of meditation.
  • There are spots where you can take panoramic views in of the coast below. Beautiful.
  • A really beautiful place with a great view. Also the peacocks are a great attraction :)
  • Great park to visit. It has many different asspects to show. Wildlife, vegetation, a monastery, pre-historic houses on the lake and some more.
