Ohrid – the old city of light 

Ohrid, the city once to have 365 churches (one for each day of the year), which has been referred to as a "Jerusalem (of the Balkans)", is the most famous touristic place in the Republic of Macedonia. In 1979 and in 1980, Ohrid and Lake Ohrid were accepted as Cultural and Natural World Heritage Sites by UNESCO. It is a famous place by the beautiful lake and the rich history and cultural heritage. The first Ohrid Literary School was founded in Ohrid in 9th century, where  3500 pupils who came out of this school spread the Slavic script, culture, art and church singing in many countries. There are many places that should be visited in Ohrid, from beautiful churches and monasteries, icon galleries, the Ancient Theater, Tsar Samuel's Fortress, museums, to the old city, national restaurants with famous Macedonian food, beautiful sources of the lake, and national park Galicica.
