Gorna Belica Travel Guide: 3 reviews and 21 photos

Gorna Belica is a tiny village high in the mountains northwest of Lake Ohrid. It is close to the Vevcani springs.

During most of the year, there is not really much more to do than enjoying the nature around the village. The old Roman road Via Egnatia is also in the neighborhood, and a Via Egnatia walking trail is signposted on the road from Gorna Belica to the Church of St Clement. I do not know how accurate the 8 km hike is marked since I did not walk it all the way.

Gorna Belica celebrates two festivals in honor of both its patron saints, St Petka on August 8 and St Clement on August 9. These festivals apparently start very early, when we were at St Clement on August 9 around 11.00 am, the festival was already over.

The Church of St Petka is located in the village Gorna Belica itself, and the Church of St Clement is about 30 minutes walking outside the village.
