"Velmej" Velmej by Pijlmans

Velmej Travel Guide: 14 reviews and 76 photos

The village Velmej is east of the road Skopje-Ohrid, between Kicevo and Ohrid.

A visit to Velmej can be combined with a visit to the All Saints Monastery in Lesani, and the Church of St George in Vrbjani, which are also located between Kicevo and Ohrid.

We came to Velmej to visit the Cave Jaorec.

To our pleasant surprise, we also found some very old churches in Velmej, with beautiful frescoes.

Besides the churches, there are some great examples of rural architecture in the village, as well as an old watermill.

    What an interesting page, thanks for sharing. Pity nobody hasn't read it before, perhaps off the beaten track? Congratulations on pioneer badge!

      Thanks balhannah! Many of my pages are off the beaten track, not a lot of people visit Macedonia....I try to convince them they should! Have a nice day :-)
