Take a tour of Town of Ohrid in Ohrid, Macedonia, the Former Yugoslav Republic of – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats. A church for literally every day of the year could once be found in Ohrid, Macedonia. Although the actual number of chapels has dwindled, this lakeside city has also been called a "Slavic Jerusalem" for its religious focus. The town and the lake were both made UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1980. The traditional and picturesque houses of Ohrid are part of what makes this, the 7th-largest city in the country, a popular destination. It is the site of many annual music festivals, including the Balkan-wide Ohrid Summer Fest. Translucent blue waters, religious monuments, and fertile history can all be experienced in this graceful community.
