Ohrid, Struga & Prespa

Lake Ohrid

20 Sep 2019
Half in North Macedonia and half in neighbouring Albania to the west, Lake Ohrid is among Europe’s oldest and deepest lakes. A UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979 and covering 388 square kilometres, at its deepest the bottom lies almost 300 metres below the surface. Rich in marine life including the famous Ohrid trout—available on most restaurant menus in town—and the temporary annual home to a number of rare birds including the Dalmatian pelican, the ferruginous duck and the eastern imperial eagle, most people who come to Ohrid for a holiday are more interested in riding around on it in the countless pleasure boats found moored along its 87km shoreline.
