Lake Ohrid is probably the most popular destination in Macedonia with locals and tourists alike. The city of Ohrid is notable for once having had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, and has been referred to as a “Jerusalem (of the Balkans)”. Today there are still many old churches such as St John at Kaneo, built sometime in the 13th century and perched on a ledge overlooking the lake.
Stunning image! I love the dramatic clouds on the top left!

That is an impressive view indeed! Where did you take the photo from?
I was standing on the hill behind the church. It was a little cloudy but I thought it came out okay.
This is just gorgeous! This is the second time I have seen something on Lake Ohrid this week – I think it’s a sign.
It is a beautiful place.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the idea of a city with so many gorgeous historical churches that you could spend the entirety of a year exploring them! Beautiful!
Oh my, such a wonderful place! That big and wide ocean is just perfect for a long dive and I wish to explore Lake Ohrid soon and bring my whole family there. Thanks for sharing!
