"Since I (Jessica 😂) grew up by the beach, I have been a bit skeptic about a vacation by the lake. But I was blown away by the beauty of Lake Ohrid, I couldn’t get enough of it! I wish I could go back, like right now! Surrounded by beautiful scenery, such as the city of Ohrid and smaller villages, where you could eat like a king and get away with a very very modest bill (yup, more on that on later posts! 😃), the lake was a constantly visible somewhere in the horizon. Wherever you’d go, the majestic lake was there, and from each viewing point, I would fall in love again with it. Writing this I realize that this photo is probably one of the few we took where you can’t see the lake, 😂 😂 so lets get back to the city of Ohrid! Inside the walls, Ohrid is such a picturesque city! Every corner has cute little houses, every road has a colorful church, every gap in between the homes a marvelous view to the lake. This picture was taken on our way to the Church of St. John the Theologian, the most iconic church in Ohrid, even of all Macedonia! (just google Macedonia, it will always come up!) We don’t know the owner of this car, but thank you for parking here so we could take this photo!"⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Trying to get the perfect shot. It’s hard! Sometimes you have to climb and stand on the burning sun ☀️. But in the end it’s usually worth it.
The tripod you see on the picture is very cheap, old and was bearly usable. We just bought a new more professional travel tripod and will let you know how that one works out.

With a maximum depth of 288 meters, #LakeOhrid is the deepest #lake of the #Balkans, shared with #Albania and #FYROM (or #Macedonia, though this name is not recognized by Greece). #Ohrid was once a capital, of the Bulgarian Empire, though it ceased to be capital once conquered by the Ottoman Empire. It's said that there was a time when Ohrid had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, the one you see in the picture could possible be one of them. That's the Church of Saints Clement and Panteleimon, which was fully reconstructed in 2002, only by hand using materials used to build the original #church in order to preserve the original spirituality of the church.
