Just across the border in North Macedonia is a treasure trove of religious relics, crumbling castles and beautiful Byzantine architecture. Known as 'the Jerusalem of the Balkans', UNESCO-listed Ohrid is a fascinating city to explore.
Sat serenely on the edge of a gleaming lake, Ohrid boasts Instagram-perfect locations at every turn. Arrive in the city, and you'll make a beeline for the old quarter for a guided tour. Stroll down cascading streets dotted with beautiful houses and gaze up at the hillside to see the bones of a medieval castle looming above.
Peek inside the grand St Sophia Cathedral to see faded frescoes, and then head to the coast to visit the charming church of St John. This stunning 13th century shrine enjoys panoramic views over the azure waters of the lake below and is one of Macedonia's most photographed spots.
