    In Byzantine times, Ohrid was a large, important city and cultural centre. Earlier ruled by Czar Samuel, the empire's fortress was situated on the top of the centre of what is called Ohrid today. Samuel's fortress consumes the city's skyline, and was once one of the most majestic the Balkans in the 11th century, with walls that are 3 km long and 16 m high. Today, 18 towers and four gates still remain from the original structure. Do take a walk along the fortification to enjoy a terrific panorama of the city and its surroundings.

    St. Jovan Kaneo is one of the quaintest churches in all of Macedonia stands on a cliff rising up from Lake Ohrid and what makes it magnificent is its location. It is a combination of Byzantine and Armenian architectural styles. Though the fresco painters are unknown, the fragments that have been preserved are of exceptional quality; the Communion of the Apostles and the portraits of St. Clement, St. Erasmus and Constantine Kavasilas especially stand out. Take a cruise around the church to enjoy the serenity and the calm of the environment.

Take a chair and drag-lifts midst the white sparkling boulevard.
