Photographer's Note

The panoramic view of Ohrid. On the hill, the Fortress of the Tsar Samuil.

Ohrid is the largest city on Lake Ohrid and the eighth-largest city in the country, with over 42,000 inhabitants as of 2002. Ohrid once had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, and has been referred to as a "Jerusalem (of the Balkans)". The city is rich in picturesque houses and monuments. In 1979 and in 1980 respectively, Ohrid and Lake Ohrid were accepted as Cultural and Natural World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. Ohrid is one of only 28 sites that are part of UNESCO's World Heritage that are Cultural as well as Natural sites.

I dreamt about seeing Ohrid for many years, I was happy that finally, I visited this charming city.

a always, better to see the bigger and sharper beta picture.
