Ohrid city
Macedonia, Ohrid (city)

Ohrid is the oldest city in the country, which has existed since ancient times. This territory was developed by man already in the Neolithic: settlements of the 4th - 3rd millennium BC are known, and since 1979 the city has been included in the UNESCO World Heritage List as one of the oldest settlements in Europe.
The most beautiful city in Macedonia, and according to the Macedonians, is also the most European. It was built on the shores of Lake Ohrid, therefore it looks and exists as a sea resort town, although there is no mention of the sea here. Ohrid is often called "Balkan Jerusalem" for the abundance of churches and monasteries.
The churches in Ohrid are at every step, which is no wonder when you consider that Lichindos (the ancient city from which Ohrid grew up) was one of the oldest Christian cities in Europe. Then Likhindos served as an outpost of Rome, later it was conquered by the Bulgarians. It was the Bulgarians who gave the city the name Ohrid and turned it into the homeland of the alphabet: Bulgarian Tsar Boris ordered the creation of a book school here, led by St. Clement of Orchid, a student of Saints Cyril and Methodius.
Despite the abundance of attractions, it takes a little time to inspect them. Firstly, the city itself is not so big, and secondly, almost all interesting places are in close proximity to each other. It is best to go along the central pedestrian street of the Old Town of Sveti Kliment Orkhidski - from the fortress of Samuel, or towards it.
Every year, at the end of June, the Ohrid Lake International Folk Dance Festival takes place on the central square of the city.
