Half-day cruise from Ohrid to the Monastery of St. Naum

If you’re spending a few days in the lakeside city of Ohrid, you cannot miss one of the most sacred places in North Macedonia: the Monastery of St. Naum.

Located 30km south from Ohrid, there’s no better way to explore the monastery than taking one of the frequent boats that leave from the port. During my visit, I took a half-day cruise from Ohrid to St. Naum not only to explore this interesting monastery and its water springs, but also to enjoy the views wonderful of Lake Ohrid on the way!
