The city of Ohrid has quite a long history to offer. Located next to one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, this place so called “The pearl of the Balkan” will astonish you with its amazing breathtaking views. Throughout the centuries, Ohrid has witnessed the taste of Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Byzantine culture, the Ottoman Empire, but most of all, the influence of the Slavic migration, which is still present today.
I will take you to the heart of the city, where you will see the fortress of the Tsar Samuel from the XI century. From there, you will have the best view of one of the largest and clearest natural tectonic lakes in Europe, the lake of Ohrid.
Next on the list will be the church of St. Clement (together with the archaeological excavation of the First Slavic university which is under restoration).
Furthermore, I will take you to the oldest spot in the old city so far – the ancient theatre from the 2nd century B.C. We will continue through the narrow streets with the classical Ohrid houses builted in the time of the Otoman Empire that are protected from UNESCO and in addition I will present to you 2 unique workshops for handmade paper and handmade woodcrafts.
I will show you the famous Ohrid pearl and will tell you the secret how it’s made. It is going to be one unforgettable experience!
