Ohrid- the pearl of Macedonia
The city of Ohrid with its 365 churches – one for each day of the year, recognized as a world heritage of the United Nations and a lake protected by UNESCO, wonderful beaches and very cheap prices is a mystery how could remain as a well hidden secret for Western tourists. It is unbeliavable that despite the fact that the city offers a summer festival in the middle of June and begining of August every year with artists of world-class, delicious food and wine, old European history in a tangible form, and an original and beautiful old town – all at a very affordable price no so many people heard of Ohrid as a tourist place. But those who has visited Ohrid have something to remember and almost always come back to visit Macedonia and city of Ohrid.
Ohrid is a pearl in one of Europe’s forgotten country-Macedonia. Ohrid Town is situated by the lake Ohrid, and gives you the feeling of that cool Mediterranean feel of crystal clear water, gravel beaches and watermelon crops along the side of the roads. Here you can find old churches, mosques and museums that hold firmly in the country’s fascinating but bloody history. You ‘ll see the contemporary ambivalence and mystery that exists here among the various ethnic groups that co-exist on this paradise. You can take a walk on the cobbled streets along the lake shore under the dim light of the high old streetlights, or take a walk through the city’s wild nightlife characterized by salty hair, brown skin and scantily dressed people who came directly from the beach. Ohrid, the pearl of Balkans has a connotation of old Europe, and it is difficult to escape the Turkish and Greek influences that characterize the country deeply, not least because of the food which is a recap of tsatskiki, salted cucumbers, pies, burek and baklava. It is exactly how you would like to see the world- hugged by high mountains, sparkling waters, cobblestone streets, historic buildings, vineyards and very very welcoming and happy people.
