Our most beloved and sold excursion starts from the harbor of Ohrid. The boat on calm lake water will bring you to the Island of Saint Naum. The wonderful view along the road is full of gems, like the ‘Bay of Bones’, idyllic fishing villages and historical buildings. After arrival visit the whopping 9th century monastery of St. Naum, where you will learn the origin of the Cyrillic writings and the legends of St. Naum and predecessors. Before discovering the island by yourself, you will enjoy a rowing boat trip over the springs of the Black Drim, known for her pure and untouched natural beauty. Afterwards you will have the chance to explore the island on your own and at the end you will be brought back to your accommodation.
