Macedonia (FYROM)

The lakeside city of Ohrid in Macedonia (FYROM) has all you need for a tranquil waterfront holiday. Red-tiled roofs and ancient ruins stand out against the glittering backdrop of Lake Ohrid, and the magnificent Church of St. John at Kaneo is an iconic fixture in its hilltop position above the city. If you stand on the hill and look out across the lake and you'll see snow-capped mountains on the horizon. It's no wonder this magical place is UNESCO World Heritage-listed.
