There are two lakes in the world I tend to call inland seas, just to give them justice. One of them is the Sevan Lake in Armenia. The other one is Lake Ohrid, the famous Macedonian jewel.
It’s probably the touristiest spot in the country, but somehow it still manages to keep the charm. It’s an accomplishment for a place of that size (read: tiny).
I’m not a morning person, but I would wake up early to watch the mist and the morning light. I would sit at the outdoor café or a bench for hours watching how the waters change their color. All the shades of blue were my delight.
After all the quirkiness of Skopje and wandering around Matka Canyon with feet full of blisters, the peaceful Ohrid was all I needed. I haven’t engaged myself in many activities. They seemed redundant at the moment.
Sometimes lakes are all you need.
I bought no souvenirs. I just took zillion pictures of water, the hills, and the sky instead. I hope you guys will enjoy them.
Thank you for visiting Ohrid with me!
