Day 2 and Day 3 – Ohrid and Struga / 07 and 08 September
General information:
1.Ohrid- Ohrid is North Macedonia’s most seductive destination. It sits on the edge of serene Lake Ohrid, with an atmospheric old quarter that cascades down steep streets, dotted with beautiful churches and topped by the bones of a medieval castle. Traditional restaurants and lakeside cafes liven up the cobblestone streets, which in high summer can be very lively indeed.

2.Struga- Located in the south western region of the country and lying on the shore of Lake Ohrid, Struga is another town that enriches the unique Macedonian experience. Lots of places to visit, culture to absorb, and scenery to enjoy. Followed by traditional food, nice and relaxing coffee shops and restaurants, offering a beautiful view of the lake. Struga will make for the perfect weekend trip.
Described as vivid and vibrant by merchants and travelers throughout the centuries, Struga haven’t lost any of its charm. Home to old architecture and number of churches that date far back, there is quite a lot to see around.

3.Vevcani- Located about 14 kilometers North-west from Struga, the village of Vevcani is home to one of the biggest natural attractions in Macedonia and the Balkans- the Vevcani springs. Right at the foot of Jablanica Mountain, it rests at an altitude that isolates this picturesque village, making it a one place stop for many outdoor activities. The only thing better is the food and the famous annual Vevcani carnival.
