Start from “Dolna porta”, the entrance to the old town, near two small churches – St. Nikola and St.”Bogorodica Bolnicki”. You’ll see some of the old and new architecture of Ohrid, of which Robevci house dominates the scenery. Today the house hosts the museum of Ohrid – which keeps the most important archaeological discoveries of Ohrid and its area. Next point of interest is St. Sofia – the former cathedral church of Ohrid’s archbishopric. This church from the XII century is impressive for its construction as well as the frescoes – Byzantine style of painting cultivated in the former capital, Constantinople. In this tour the ages are mixed because Ohrid is one of the rare towns with continuous living for more than millennia. What follows is visit of the ancient theater, built in III century BC, accidentally discovered and revived again today, for holding plays and concerts. Plaoshnik – a place that is spiritual and cultural center of the city Lyhnidos (Ohrid), complex which consists of an old Slavic church and university, is also included in our tour. The whole site was rebuilt in 2002 following the example of ancient sanctuary. Nearby there are also remains of two early Christian basilicas that have impressive mosaics. Tsar Samuel’s Fortress, the fortress which dominates the town is visited afterwards. The tour continues to the church St. Jovan Kaneo and Kaneo area, from where one gets the most wonderful view of the entire city, the lake with the whole coastline.
