World Heritage Sites in Macedonia


Ohrid Region

(41.12 N 20.80 E)

Ohrid is one of the oldest human settlements in Europe, built mostly between the 7th and the 19th century. The most ancient Slav monastery (St Pantelejmon) is located here. The site was expanded in 2019 to include the the north-western, Albanian, part of Lake Ohrid, the small Lin Peninsula and the strip of land along the shoreline that connects the peninsula to the Macedonian border. The peninsula is the site of the remains of an Early Christian church founded in the middle of the 6th century.
