The Ohrid Lake is one of Europe's oldest lakes and an UNESCO World Heritage site. When I visted this summer it brought back memories of when I was little and the many long holidays I enjoyed. Playing the tourist I went around the lake which sits in both Albania and the Republic of Macedonia. I visited the church of St.John the Theologian, the Monastery of Kalishta (where they were charging 10 euros if you want to take pictures inside the church, and 20 euros for videos. It never ceases to amaze me how people get to make money through the church.) and the Monastery of Saint Naum. There are around 14 Orthodox churches overlooking the Ohrid Lake, with many of which dating back to the medieval times.
I found very interesting the Bay of the Bones Museum which is a replica of a village built on poles in the lake, dating from the Bronze and early Iron Age. This village was established by enthusiastic historians and archeologist to represent the lifestyle between 1200BC to 700BC in the area. The museum has different artefacts found on the site.
Also a visit to Ohrid town was nice, to refresh a little bit in the middle of chuch visits. Dinner in the town of Pogradec having the Lake Ohrid trout or as it is known in Albania the Koran fish.
