- Explore a UNESCO World Heritage Site
Staying in Ohrid and want to make sure you get the most out of your time in that beautiful city? Then don’t miss this excellent Macedonia gift experience that covers all the city’s must-see destinations in just half a day. Set on the eastern shore of Lake Ohrid, the city is known as the centre of Christianity for Slavic people, and is one of only a handful of places that has been assigned a UNESCO World Heritage status for both culture and nature. You’ll walk through the Lower Gate to the Archaeological Museum to see a fascinating exhibition of ancient artefacts, visit the 11th century cathedral of St. Sofia, and the remains of an ancient Roman amphitheatre.
In Ohrid you’re never far from a beautiful view of the lake, but the best is from the medieval walls of the Samuil Fortress. Be prepared to have your breath taken away. Other sights include religious icons and frescoes, the burial place of St. Clement, and of course the landmark church of St. Jovan Kaneo, situated on the cliffs overlooking the lake. From here you have the option of taking a boat trip from a nearby fishermen's settlement, a perfect way to end your gift experience in Ohrid.
