It was nice to walk along the lake and to drive up the mountain to the upper part of the park. The springs near the lake are great . I wish we were there in the spring - August was awfully hot.

The little lake is where the underwater springs of Lake Ohrid are located. Rowing boats are for hire for 10€ per boat, max 4 persons, for 30 minutes. A growing tourist trap. The national park offers so much more if one can find the time.

Beautiful national park offering sweeping lake and mountain views. It is located just across from hotel granit and you can take a bus from the center towards prisipe and get off at the park. There's a large sign so you can't miss it.
