The Guardian empfiehlt Ohrid in der Rubrik: Great European city breaks you've probably never thought of

Das renommierte Medium The Guardian empfiehlt in seiner Rubrik "Great European city breaks you've probably never thought of" einen besuch nach Ohrid.


Ohrid
There is nowhere quite like Ohrid. The town is on a huge lake of the same name, with over 200 endemic species of plant, fish and water creature. It’s visited in winter by birds such as Dalmatian pelicans and various types of eagle. Surrounded by hills, it feels sublimely relaxed and gentle. In summer the locals splash about in rowing boats, swim and sunbathe. The charming old town, on the eastern shore, has piazzas, narrow winding lanes, a theatre built in 200BC, numerous churches and several hotels in the old houses: Villa St Sofija (doubles from £28) is near the beach and centre. The town is dominated by the massive Samuel’s Fortress – named for the Bulgarian king who ruled in the 10th century. Just out of town is Galicica national park, one of Europe’s most biodiverse. For informal beachside eating, try Letna Bavča Kaneo (Kočo Racin 43) near Sveti Jovan church.
