2. Pelister National Park

Macedonia’s oldest national park, Pelister is a great place for a day trip to breathe in the fresh Alpine air.

There’s two glacial lakes, known as ‘Pelister’s Eyes’, in the park that will look insanely good as for a Macedonia Instagram snapshot. If you want to spend the night here there’s also plenty of cute guesthouses nearby.

3. Radožda

Radožda is a sleepy fishing village in the Struga region, beside the waters of Lake Ohrid. Terracotta rooftops, bright blue water and a truly authentic vibe will make you fall in love.

Several ancient churches carved into the rock and fresh fish are an added bonus.

7. St. John at Kaneo on Lake Ohrid

The most photographed place in Macedonia, and for good reason, Saint John at Kaneo is a Macedonian Orthodox church. It overlooks Lake Ohrid and is one of the prettiest places you’ll see in the entire Balkan region.

See how stunning it is?
