Lonely Planet ranked Ohrid one of the 10 best destinations for 2017

Every year Lonely Planet puts out their new book Best In Travel. For 2017 the little-known city of Ohrid in Macedonia sneaks in at number five, renowned for its position overlooking an extraordinary blue lake.

5. Ohrid, Macedonia

Overlooking the extraordinarily blue waters of its eponymous lake, Ohrid enjoys a stunning position that is best viewed from a boat. From the water you’ll see the town’s terracotta roofs broken up by centuries-old church spires (the city claims once to have had 365) and overlooked by the turreted walls of Car Samoil’s Castle.
Ohrid has transformed itself from Macedonia’s religious centre to its busiest holiday resort, and its beaches are the best by far in this otherwise landlocked nation. However, a planned new lake-shore development will likely change this sleepy town forever, making now a great time to go.
