Our first stop in Macedonia was a small city on the shores of Lake Ohrid with a compact old town, where medieval churches, monasteries, and open-air ruins stand alongside traditional houses with red-tiled roofs. The massive walls of the centuries-old Samoil’s Fortress, at the top of the hill, dominate the city skyline.
Our first visit – August 15, 2018
Our second visit, this time already to North Macedonia’s most seductive destination, was unplanned. But we did enjoy again an atmospheric old quarter that cascades down steep cobblestone streets, with lively restaurants and lakeside cafes. After a long walk around the old town and lovely little town beach and boardwalk, we took dinner at Porta restaurant (Mineral water – 0,75 l / 170 MKD, Pizza Quattro Formaggi – 460 MKD, and Skopsko beer – 0,5 l / 210 MKD).
Our second visit – June 13, 2022
