Situated on the shores of the lake of the same name, Orhid and its surroundings are well worth a visit. The Lake Ohrid region is home to one of the oldest lakes in the world and one of the most unique sources of biodiversity in Europe. Its special natural value and the quality and diversity of its cultural, natural and spiritual heritage combine to make it a truly unique region. Two thirds of Lake Ohrid is located in North Macedonia and is inscribed on the World Heritage List as the "Natural and Cultural Heritage of the Ohrid Region" property. The integrity of this World Heritage property would be greatly enhanced by its extension to the remaining third of Lake Ohrid in Albania.
You can also visit the many churches and archaeological sites, see some of the most beautiful and well-preserved Byzantine frescoes and icons, relax and enjoy delicious regional delicacies in one of the charming restaurants and cafes on the crystal clear waters of Lake Ohrid..
