Service Description

The city of Ohrid has quite a long history, and was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. Ohrid is known for once having 365 churches, one for each day of the year. Located next to one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, this place called "The pearl of the Balkan" will astonish you with its amazing breathtaking views. Throughout the centuries, Ohrid has witnessed the taste of Ancient Greece, the Roman Empire, the Byzantine Culture, the Ottoman Empire, but most of all, the influence of the Slavic migration, which is still present today. The city is rich in picturesque houses and monuments. Our one hour, live, personal, interactive virtual walking tour will begin in the heart of the city, at the top of the hill looking at the fortress of the Tsar Samuel from the XI century. From there, we will have the best view of one of the largest and clearest natural tectonic lakes in Europe, the lake of Ohrid. Next on the list will be the church of St. Clement, together with the archaeological excavation of the First Slavic University (which is under restoration). Next, we will walk to the oldest spot in the old city so far - the ancient theatre, from the 2nd century B.C. We will continue through the narrow streets where we will present to you the Ohrid classical architecture. Then we will take you to some of the unique workshops: woodcarving and handmade paper - an ancient artform from China dating back to the 2nd century B.C. We will close overlooking the amazing lake with breathtaking views. Come see the 3 million year old lake Ohrid. $66 for each additional screen * This tour is not designed for our corporate customers.
