Ohrid, Macedonia: your perspective?

Jump to last reply

My husband may be presenting a paper at a conference in Ohrid next June. I am torn between accompanying him, seeing something different (never been in this part of Europe) and remaining behind in beautiful, but familiar, Italy with friends/family.

I note that the lake itself is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The art and architecture, antiquities and religious heritage sound intriguing. But I don't drive and would likely be left out of the conference socializing.

Is there enough going on in Ohrid and easily accessible environs to hold the interest for 4 days? Any personal experience of Macedonia?
