Exploring the amazing city of Ohrid with a private guide
Ohrid is situated in the southwestern part of the country on the shores of the Ohrid lake. According to the historians, Lychnidos ( the ancient name of Ohrid ) was built in the 4th-century b. c. , but again the myths and legends tell us that Ohrid was built in the time of the legendary classical civilizations, such as Phonecia and Troy in the 2-millennium b. c. . Whatever the actuality is, Ohrid was and eternally will stay a mystical and sacred place that radiates with spirituality that has accumulated for centuries.
The life here is slow and people are passionate and every tourist which visit the Ohrid old town can feel the coexistence of the past and the present. Protected by UNESCO as a world natural and cultural heritage site.
