By The Harbor

These photos were taken by Ohrid's harbor. They've made the area lush with vistas and garden plantings. The stray dogs love the plantings.

More Saint Naim

The mosaicked area is where Saint Naim was buried. The other photos show how beautiful the scenery is. The gardens are peaceful, too, despite the whole tourist atmosphere.

Saint Naim Monastery

Saint Naim is where Cyril and Methodus set out from to educate and Christianize eastern Europe. It is now also a beach destination. Located at the southern end of Lake Ohrid, it has a system of springs that feed into the lake, a beach, a picnic area, boat dock, several restaurants, and a hotel. The little monastery itself is swamped in all the other stuff. at least it's pretty. And it has peacocks.

Prehistoric Village - Bay of Bones

The floating village is a recreation of a Neolithic village on the same (in the lake) site from approximately 6,000 years ago. The site is beautiful, with crystal clear water and lovely vistas. The recreation is a bit cheesy, though. You can walk through the huts and see the way they were put together.
