Yes it is easy to get to and not far from the main street, but there is nothing really here to see, plus there can be drunk men talking very loud

This is on the road uphill to the fortress, and worth a stop. The seating is cool and the acoustics still work. I'd love to go to a concert there!

At the heart of the old town, you can visit this theatre with stage for Ohrid culture summer. A sweet part of architecture at the pedestrian road around the old town!

Very small roman theater. In a city abundant with history and culture, as Ohrid, it appears an unimportant attraction, that one can miss.

It is interesting to visit and hear the acustic there, but nothing more, it seems like abandoned, the stairs look not very stable, we have not trusted them.

It is what it is - an ancient, semi-circle performance space in the middle of Ohrid. There's no historical information, no materials, no guidance, nothing. . . . If I had visited Ohrid, I would definitely have tried to see a show here. Otherwise, it...More
