Jerusalem of the Balkans

Located on Lake Ohrid, the town of Ohrid earned the nickname Jerusalem of the Balkans because it was once home to 365 churches. This World Heritage Site also represents one of the oldest settlements in Europe. A scenic tourist destination, Ohrid features a welcoming historical district, a medieval castle, and an abundance of churches, including one that houses more than 800 Byzantine icons, many of which date back to the 11th century. Beyond its cultural attractions, the town has many alluring natural features, including mountains of the Galicica National Park and lakeshore beaches, which are most crowded during its summer festival. Make the most of your holiday in Ohrid by finding out about its attractions and choosing what to see using our Republic of Macedonia trip itinerary planner.

Where to stay

Combining natural beauty and historical sights, Ohrid is one of Macedonia’s best known and most visited destinations. In spite of its modest size, the scenic shore of Lake Ohrid offers an array of accommodations. Hotels range from luxurious to budget-friendly. Much more numerous than hotels are the guesthouses, where you can find lodging in modern villas and traditional homes, in town or in the peaceful natural surroundings just outside. Rental apartments and several hostels oriented toward younger visitors round out the offerings.
