Добре дошли в Охрид, Перлата на Балканите, както нашите гости обичат да казват. Охрид е комбинация от традиция и съвремие, главен духовен, културен и туристически център на Македония, който е в списъка на ЮНЕСКО за световно културно наследство заедно с Охридското езеро като природна забележителност. Многобройните исторически паметници, открити в околностите, говорят за традицията на македонския народ. Можете да се потопите в историята и културата, да пазарувате и да се насладите на кулинарното изкуство в града. Тук има неща, които не се срещат никъде другаде, най-дълбоките спомени сливат епохи и империи, царства и мисии, преплитайки на фина нишка историческата приемственост на Балканите. От друга страна природата не ни спестява красотите си разположени от бреговете на езерото и до планина Галичица, от чиито връх може да се насладите на гледката към двете езера - Охридското и Преспанското езеро. Потърсете и изберете вашите любими плажове и места за забавление през нощта или през деня. Изберете ресторант, където да ядете, пиете и вкусите домашно приготвена храна, докато слушате традиционна музика. Посетете музеите, църквите и галериите. Можете да научите много за историята на града. Тръгнете на пътешествие през езерото, планините и околните села. Насладете се на престоя си в Охрид! Стойте колкото се може повече в този град и той няма да ви напусне, където и да отидете по света.

Охридското езеро е разположено на планинската граница между Югозападна Македония и Източна Албания. То е едно от най-дълбоките и най-старите езера в Европа с уникална водна екосистема от световно значение с повече от 200 ендемични вида. Според последните научни изследвания то се е формирало преди около 3 милиона години в резултат на тектонични промени. Днес в света има само няколко езера, които могат да се сравнят по старост с Охридското езеро. Насладете се на невероятните пейзажи, които се променят с разместването на облаците и слънчевата светлина в постоянно сменящи се шарки и винаги ще ви изумяват с красотата си, като в приказка от мечтите ви.
