History of Ohrid
Called the "Jerusalem of the Balkans", Ohrid is one of the oldest settlements in Europe and was once considered the epicenter of religion and Slavic culture. Its history is evident in every building that marks the old part of the city. However, it is Lake Ohrid that makes the city a unique historical artifact. At three million years old, it stands as one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, and gives Ohrid the prestige of being named as a cultural and natural world heritage protected by UNESCO.
