  1. Ohrid really is Macedonia's biggest selling point. It needs development but not the fake kind that kind be found in Skopje. Just enough to make it attractive to Western Europeans for sustainable tourism.

    If they could achieve that, Ohrid could become so popular, it really is a spectacular place. I just hope it's natural beauty is preserved.

    1. A lot of potential for mountain biking routes (there already are some), mountaineering and other types of adventure sports due to the climate and terrain!

      I would also like to see development around Prespa, Ohrid in summer is so busy that is seems that Prespa region could be attractive for quieter beaches/resort type places. Might just be me but Prespa always seems colder than Ohrid too which can be nice during 40 deg weather :)
