Lake Ohrid and its associated Prespa lakes are worthwhile visiting. Not only nature lovers will appreciate the area, which is a UNESCO World Heritage. Up to 300m deep, full of unique fishes Lake Ohrid is one of the oldest lakes in the world. The Ohrid trout, recognizable by its red dot, exists only here and can be enjoyed in the restaurants around the lake, especially in the city of Ohrid.
The old town of Ohrid, lying on the Macedonian side, surprises. Coming from the sparsely populated corner of Albania, the very well-preserved city center is full of charm. You can stroll down to the lake through the narrow streets with their small renovated houses and explore the coastal strip over the footbridges that were built on the lake.
What to do
It is best to plan 1-2 days for visiting the monasteries and museums of the city. From the St. Johns church you can enjoy a wonderful view over the lake.
In the three-country triangle Albania, Greece and Macedonia is located the Prespa National Park. With Lake Ohrid, the large and small Prepa lake form a unique natural landscape and are home to pelicans and many species of birds. For a journey, you should plan at least one day.
