Tour Overview

Day 1

Ohrid Lake

Ohrid is one of the most seductive destinations in Macedonia, indicated as one of the oldest human settlements in all Europe. Ohrid city and Ohrid Lake are part of UNESCO World Heritage since 1980. Ohrid Lake and its surroundings where inhabited by the Illyrian Tribe of Enkeleys. The Lake was named by the Romans as “Lyhnidas” (the Light Lake).Ohrid became an important centre for the Orthodox believers during the Byzantine Empire and is famous for it’s 365 Orthodox churches, said to have one church for each day of the year. During the Ottoman Empire the city grew on the hills and surrounding areas by the lake. The houses where built with a very specific architecture that created narrowed streets, tunnels and tiny yards on the hilly terrain, making it possible for every house to have a good view of the lake. Today the city is famous for its architecture, the churches, the castle on the top of the city, the amphitheatre, the beautiful view of the lake surrounded by mountains and the pearls from the lake.At 08:00 am our professional guide will pick you up at your hotel in Tirana. After short a drive we arrive at the city of Elbasan where we take a brief city tour within castle. Struga would be our next stop. We will have a quick drink by the beautiful source of Drini River, one of the longest in Western Balkans. Our tour continues toward the city of Ohrid (UNESCO protected) an important center of Orthodoxy. In Ohrid we visit the church of St. George, the church of St. Nicolas and the mosque Halveti Hayati Tekke.
