  • From Sant Naun Sanctuary, if you are not afraid of the curves and narrow roads, walk the coastal road for a few kilometers then on the right there is the entrance of another road for a fee that in about 30 kilometers will lead you to Lake Prespac. Get ready to do many turns and steep climb (and then descent) but it's worth it. At the top you will have a view of Lake Ohrid to the Albanian crust: you will feel like you are on the plane (I think the difference in altitude is about 1,000 meters). Visit cjhe I recommend. Then from Lake Prespac you can comfortably return to Ohrid via Resen. Even Lake Prespac, much less touristy, is worth the curves to face to get there.

  • Beautiful place. Enjoy every second. Don't forget to stop on the top of it. 4star the road is not that good. Needs to pay like 2 3 euros for a car. They need to repair the road and watch out it is only 5m wide.
  • Scenic and in such a clean condition, large areas of natural woodland , mountains and lakes so ideal for hiking, cycling, canoeing and paragliding. Unspoilt.
