Ohrid

Samuel’s Fortress

Tsar Samuel (?-1014) is a controversial figure in modern Macedonia and his fortress overlooking the town is another of the town’s buildings shrouded in myth and mystery. Believed to have been constructed on a much earlier fortress dating from the 4th century BC, little remains of this once grand stronghold with the exception of the remaining outer wall structures, a few watch towers and four original gates. Despite the fortress being in a relative bad condition, the small entrance fee to get inside is worth the trip up the hill for both gaining a better understanding of the former strategic importance of Ohrid and for the related and spectacular views of the lake and surrounding mountains.
