Ohrid is the seventh largest city in North Macedonia. The city is a treasure trove of picturesque houses and monuments and is more than 2,400 years old. Ohrid has been a popular tourist destination for many years, due in part to its magnificent location on the shore of Lake Ohrid. Both the lake and the city were added to UNESCO's list of cultural and natural heritage sites in 1980.

Places to visit in Ohrid

Lake Ohrid is perhaps North Macedonia's most famous landmark. It is one of the world's oldest lakes, is 300 metres deep and is famed for the water's different shades of blue. At the lake you will find the monastery of St. Naum, several hot springs and the Bay of Bones open-air museum. Sveti Jovan Kaneo is an awe-inspiring church that stands in perhaps the most beautiful place in Ohrid. It is built on a part of the hill that stands in the lake. As such, the church is surrounded by water on three sides, making Sveti Jovan Kaneo probably the most photographed sight in Ohrid.

Discover Ohrid

There are no truly typical North Macedonian dishes, although traditional Balkan cuisine is always very popular. Salad with cucumber, tomato, goat's cheese, onion and olives, served alongside a main course of a generously sized piece of meat. Given Ohrid's lakeside position, fish is also a regular feature on the menu. A typical drink in Ohrid is raki. You'll need to remember most restaurants make their own raki and the taste and strength can vary greatly.
