"Old Dojran, New Dojran and Dojran Lake" Star Dojran by Pijlmans

Star Dojran Travel Guide: 12 reviews and 40 photos

In the summer Star (Old) Dojran is very popular among the people from the Gevgelija region and even people from abroad visit here because of the lake.

Star Dojran was heavily bombed during the First World War (1914-1918) and Nov (New) Dojran was built a few kilometers to the north along the the lake soon after the war. Consequently, the few interesting old monuments (or their ruins) can be found in Star Dojran.

Lake Dojran is the 3rd tectonic lake of Macedonia, after Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa. The lake is not very deep, 10 m at maximum compared to e.g. almost 300 m for Lake Ohrid.

The water therefore is heated quite quickly by the hot Macedonian sun in the summer and was lukewarm in August 2012.

The Macedonian-Greek border splits the lake in two.

It was hard to find accommodation in Star Dojran, therefore we stayed in Nov Dojran. We rather would have stayed in Star Dojran because that is were the restaurants and nightlife are.

We used Dojran as a base to visit the surrounding towns of Gevgelija and Valandovo.
