Fantastic day discovering Mavrovo and Ohrid

Many thanks to our tour guide and driver for taking us on an informative and enjoyable trip from Skopje to Mavrovo and Ohrid that also included a visit to a beautiful monastery and stops by three man-made lakes. We learned a great deal about Macedonian history both ancient and recent. This provided us with an excellent overview of the region.

Great day trip

My guide Alexander was very knowledgeable and friendly. He was also a safe driver (there was a rather long distance to cover in the dark). I sprained my ankle during the day out but with his help and encouragement I managed to complete an awesome walk in the Old town of Ohrid!

Langer, aber lohnenswerter Ausflug. Zuerst geht es in den Mavrovo Nationalpark (dort leider Pech mit dem Wetter gehabt, deshalb dies nur kurz gemacht), dann ein orthodoxes Kloster am Berg angeschaut. Sehr schöne Anlage mit über 1.000 Jahre alter Kirche (immer wieder aufgebaut nach Zerstörungen) und dort sehr interessante Erläuterungen von einem Mönch auf Englisch erhalten. Ohrid eine schöne Stadt in der es eine vielleicht 2-stündige Führung durch den Guide (See, alter Häuser, Buchdruck im Mittelalter, Art Colosseum nur älter, etc.) gab. War sehr informativ. zudem noch Freizeit für Essen und Kaffee vor Ort gehabt.
