Having never even heard of Macedonia until I met my best friend five years ago I would call this one of Europe's hidden gems. Ohrid reminds me a lot of Capri, Italy only much cheaper and less crowds. It's truly spectacular

We stayed at the Villa Klia which had a great view of the lake..most of our day was spent staring at the lake from our balcony(was too hot to go out) and the evening sunsets were a view to gorge on..!

I love Ohrid. Ive been here 6 times over as many years. Its a beautiful place with friendly people and amazingly high quality produce. Nothing compares to Violeta Gjorgievska's home cooking however.

The lake is beautiful, clean, clear, and perfect for a swim on a hot day. There were tiny little fish swimming all around! It was gorgeous.

Lake ohrid is a place to stay overnight... the town or place cannot be enjoyed in a day trip as there's 3 hours of winding road driving each way from skopje. It's better staying overnight or 2 days to really enjoy the town and place....More

Well, its to admitt, the landscape is interesting to explore, also the road between Ohrid and Prespan, BUT avoid town of Ohrid during summer season. Crowd is worse than in the major spots on the adriatic coast.

It depends what you plan to do. For exploring September is great month to go, for swimmining in the lake, it will propably be too cold. Ohrid is definitely worth visiting even in September but the weather there is more... More

We stayed at Villa Rustica which was lovely, fantastic views on the hill overlooking the lake and very close to visit the fortress and various churches. The owner was very friendly and it was extremely clean.
