The Sacred lakes of Macedonia

Visit the town of Ohrid, one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. This is
a UNESCO protected site; it has the oldest Slav monastery (St Pantelejmon) and
many more remarkable Byzantine sacral objects. The distinctive architecture
of the old town makes an excellent scenery, along with the dominant Robevci
house – the museum of Ohrid. Get challenged by the Byzantine sacral mysteries
in the impressive XII century cathedral church St. Sofia, St. Mary Perivleptos,
the churches and medieval schools build by St. Clement and St. Nahum themselves.
Visit the ancient roman theatre, built in I century BC Accidentally discovered
and revived again for modern plays and concerts. Get fantastic views of
Ohrid Lake from the medieval walls of King Samoil’s Fortress. Treat yourself a
tasty trout dish, and by some handmade pearl jewelry for your loved ones.
