Discover the oldest settlement in Europe and a UNESCO World Heritage site on a day trip from Skopje to Ohrid. Explore the city's old town, relax on the shores of Lake Ohrid, and hike in the surrounding mountains. Nicknamed the ‘Jerusalem of the Balkans’, Ohrid is one of the oldest settlements in Europe, and was once considered to be the epicenter of religion and Slavic culture. Its history is evident in every building that lines the city’s old town. However, it is Lake Ohrid that makes the city a unique historical artifact. At three million years old, it stands as one of Europe’s oldest and deepest lakes, and gives Ohrid the prestige of being named as both a cultural and natural UNESCO World Heritage site. Nestled between the mountains of Macedonia, three hours outside the capital city of Skopje, Ohrid is the perfect spot for your next adventure. Surrounded by natural landscapes that are the stuff of your Instagram dreams, Ohrid is removed from the bustle of major cities, yet easily accessible by bus or plane – the city even has its own international airport. For those looking to travel within the area, the Greek border is less than two hours away. What Ohrid lacks in coastline, it makes up for in character and natural beauty. Its lake offers pockets of beachy areas that reveal views of the surrounding mountains and hills. Along the shoreline, carefully reconstructed stilted villages give the area an Italian vibe, while waterside resorts make it the perfect place to relax in the sun. For those tired of the beach, hikes that lead around the shoreline and into the mountains are especially tempting. The more vigorous hiking and cycling trails will reward their conquerors with a beautiful overhead view of the lake.
