Overlooking Ohrid is the massive and impressive Tzar Samuel Fortress, also knows as Samuel's Fortress. The fortress was built during Tsar's Samuels reign, from 976 1014. The towers and walls ran three kilometers. Quite a large portion of the walls remain and numerous towers. Only one gate of the original three remain.

Directions: Overlooking Ohrid - kind of hard to miss, depending on what you have been drinking.
