It's very nice to spent several days on the lake. During the summer you can swim in the lake. It's very clear lake. People are very polite in Ohrid. I enjoyed every time I was there.

We stayed at Villa Rustica which was lovely, fantastic views on the hill overlooking the lake and very close to visit the fortress and various churches. The owner was very friendly and it was extremely clean.
