Lake Ohrid

The lake straddles the mountainous border between southwest of North Macedonia and east of Albania. It is one of the deepest and oldest lakes in Europe, with a unique aquatic ecosystem of global significance, with over 200 endemic species. The Lake region has the most ancient Slavonic monastery and the first Slavonic University in the Balkans – the Ohrid literary school that has spread writing, education and culture throughout the old Slavonic world.
