Quay Ohrid
Macedonia, Ohrid (city)

The most beautiful city of Macedonia, Ohrid, located on a rock near the lake of the same name, near the border with Albania, is the most popular city among tourists in the country. 2500 years of history are so well preserved in it that a whole day is not enough to see the main attractions.
The ancient Greeks called Ohrid "the city of light" - Lichnidos, because of its proximity to the lake with crystal clear water. On the Ohrid embankment there is an ancient pier, nearby the old quarter of Ohrid begins, and the Fortress of King Samuel crowns the mountain.
The Ohrid embankment is the center of fish restaurants and children's attractions. There is no swimming near the promenade. The bottom in this place is shallow, in addition, tourist boats moor to the breakwaters. Near the main pier there are several attractions at once. The monument to St. Clement, the compiler of the first Slavic alphabet - the Glagolitic alphabet, turned towards the embankment. Immediately behind him, in the same direction, is a monument to the first printers Cyril and Methodius.
At the monument to St. Clement, the central pedestrian street Ohrid begins, also named after the saint. Along the street are the main tourist shops of the city, where you can buy both classic souvenirs (fridge magnets, plaster casts and flasks with artificial snow), as well as items of traditional craft: woolen socks, wooden products or, for example, honey.
