The city of the immortal Ohrid is the sublime lakeside point that for many represents the culmination of the Macedonian experience, a kingdom of light and water, a repository of ancient ruins from Macedonia’s earlier kingdoms. Ohrid is Macedonia's prime destination, with its atmospheric old quarter with beautiful churches along a graceful hill, topped by a medieval castle overlooking serene, 34 km-long Lake Ohrid. Ohrid’s major attractions are all located within a remarkably concentrated and eminently walkable area, among and above the narrow streets of the Old Town lined with restaurants and cafés perfectly suited for relaxing in the cool summer evenings. Travelers can wander through the cobblestone streets past the red-roofed buildings and storybook churches to take in the clean, calm waters of one of the world's oldest and deepest lakes. Protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site, Ohrid is a jewel box of medieval architecture and historical monuments and a highlight of any trip to Macedonia.
