Nice view Mar 15, 2013
This Fortress is located at the hill in Ohrid. It is recommended to make a walk from the city center of Ohrid to this fortress so you can see the other historic sightseeing of Ohrid also.

It is also recommended to walk this walk (where you have to walk to the top of the hill) during the morning, when you visit Ohrid during the summer, when the temperature is not at it's maximum.

When you reached the Fortress you pay a small fee to enter the place. The main part of the fortress are the big walls. You can walk over this walls, from which you have a wonderful view over lake Ohrid, the Ohrid and the city of Struga. The walls are located in a kind of circle, so it is recommended to climb on different position to the top of the walls. Than you can see the most different views.

Besides the rebuild walls nothing is left from the castle. That's a pity, but the view makes up for a lot!
