River Drim, Struga

4.2
#14 of 25 in Things to do in Southwestern Region
River Drim streams out of Lake Ohrid and runs through town, offering a view of its clear waters to pedestrians walking along its banks. Stroll along paved promenades and over the Poetry Bridge, one of the places where international poetry evenings are held. Three beaches and the largest five-star hotel in the city sit near the estuary. From one end, you can catch a good view of the lake and the surrounding mountains. Do not leave Struma without tasting Ohrid trout, a type of salmon that lives in the river and the lake.

    Take a stroll along the Drim in Struga, delicious and cheap food in the many restaurants and watch the daredevils diving from bridges in the Drim.

    The quantities of water flowing from Ohrid lake creating the Drin river are impressive - other than that there is nothing nice on the spot,only vending stalls.  more »

    Incredible for a morning swim or a jump from the bridge. Cristal clear water. Definitely worth a visit (stay at Villa Nestor)  more »
