Southwestern Region

(4.1/5 based on 4,000+ reviews for top 20 attractions)
Things to do: religious sites, nature, sightseeing
The southwestern region of the Republic of Macedonia remains best known for Lake Ohrid, one of Europe's deepest and oldest bodies of water. Designated as a World Heritage Site, the lake shelters a rich aquatic ecosystem of over 200 endemic plant and animal species. The city of Ohrid, the region's biggest urban center, sits on the lake's northeastern shore and offers a string of well-developed beaches. The city also boasts an atmospheric old town, a compact neighborhood of Byzantine churches and medieval fortifications made for sightseeing on foot. Use the city as your lakeside base for day trips to the nearby national parks, the region's top hiking and paragliding destinations. Add Southwestern Region and other destinations to your itinerary using our Republic of Macedonia itinerary maker, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
