When the idea of holding the "7th official VT Euromeet" in Ohrid and Bitola in May 2011 came up, it was clear to us to combine the meeting with a trip through Albania, Macedonia and even Kosovo. On this trip we spent 4 nights in Ohrid, 2 before the meeting and 2 during the meeting.
Ohrid is located at the eastern shore of the Lake Ohrid, which is surrounded by mountains of more than 2000 m in height. The town has about 42.000 inhabitants, but especially in summer it is also packed with tourists.
Ohrid offers a large amount of sights from different centuries. From the fortress on the top of the town panoramic views of the city, the lake and the surrounding region can be enjoyed. Many Orthodox churches as well as mosques from Ottoman times can be visited all around the town.
Due to its touristic popularity, the town offers a wide range of cafes, pubs and restaurants of many different cuisines and styles.
"The road twisted, and suddenly a panoramic water horizon opened in front of it, sparkling and changing numerous colours."
