Ohrid

Macedonia

You might have heard of Skopje, the capital city of Macedonia. But did you ever think of visiting Ohrid?
Ohrid is a city located in west Macedonia, close to the border with Albania. Macedonia and especially Ohrid aren’t that well known to most people, but it’s a great destination for your next citytrip.

WHAT TO DO?

Ohrid is a town that’s not that well known but would be a waste if you’d never visit it. The lake Ohrid that’s in the middle of the town can sometimes offer you a view that you might have never seen before. The town has old buildings that create a nice atmosphere combined with the delicious smells of foods. The nightlife in Ohrid is also very lively during the summer nights.

HoW TO GET THERE?

Tui and other tour operators offer flights to Ohrid directly. From the airport you can take a taxi or a bus to go to your hotel. The currency in Macedonia is the Macedonian Denar, and 1 euro is equal to 61 denar, which makes it a very cheap destination.

i’m sure i personally have never seen nature this rich and beautiful in any other city in Europe it is a real eye opener and sure is something you should see at least once in your life.
