Museum is little bit farther from Ohrid but you must see it. Water is clean and wooden house is like from fairy tale. Ticker is cheap.

We had a lot of time in Ohrid so we were able to visit but it is only really as something else to do once you have visited all the main sites

The reconstruction of the original site is very well done. The small museum is informative. The whole site is very charming and the setting fashinating

It has become very interesting, where we are going back to history as we once lived. On my accident, it was cold, and the other time I dive to that area. So I'll see that part below the water. Nature is around the lakeshore, and...More

Very interesting small museum on the open water. On the road to St. Naum monastery. Check it out you won't regret the vista and the historic jump back.

A museum with some content, it is necessary to place tables with descriptions, suitable for shorter stops

This is worth a stop. We took the boat up and it was a lovely ride. The outdoor museum is a reproduction of what was there years ago. In side the building are artifacts and explanations. I️ had not heard of this before and found...More
