We will pick you up from your hotel or any location of your preference in Ohrid. First, we take you to the neighboring town of Struga. We start with a short walking tour through the streets of Struga and visit the lock where the water of Lake Ohrid flows into the river Black Drim. Our next stop will be villages of Kalishta and Radozda, which are famous of their cave churches and frescos. In Kalishta you will find very rare old wooden icon where the Mother of God is painted in a black robe and with a black face (Black Madonna), and the child Jesus painted in black. The last stop of our tour is village of Vevchani. In this village we will visit the springs of Vevchani, a beautiful park of nature. In a national restaurant in the village of Vevchani we will have a chance to taste local food, such as ayvar, pindzhur, tavche-gravche (baked beans), variety of salads, grilled mushrooms and peppers, grilled sheep cheese and home-made wine and rakiya. Vevchani is famous about its Vevchani Carnival. The Vevchani Carnival, which claims a 14 century long legacy, is held every year from 13 to 14 January. Back to Ohrid.
