Ohrid and Ohrid Lake are located in the south-western part of the Republic of Macedonia.
Ohrid is notable that once had 365 churches, one for each day of the year, and is referred to as the Macedonian Jerusalem.
The city is rich in picturesque houses and monuments, and tourism is predominant.

Lake Ohrid is probably the oldest lake in Europe, preserving a unique aquatic ecosystem with more than 200 endemic species that is of worldwide importance.
It belong to a group of Dessaret basins that originated from a geotectonic depression during the Pliocene epoch up to five million years ago on the western side of the Dinaric Alps. Worldwide, there are only a few lakes with similarly remote origins with Lake Baikal and Lake Tanganyika being the most famous.
Also, Ohrid Lake is famous for its trout fish (pastrmka) (with two species: "Letnica" and "Belvica").

In 1980, Ohrid and Lake Ohrid were accepted as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
