Ohrid Through My Eyes

28 June 2016
This is not a story, but reality, eternal one, one which so far no one has ever managed to retell. Here in Ohrid, the most powerful people throughout the centuries had only one goal – to leave at least their mark. Ohrid simply couldn’t be conquered, but it immediately became the seat of the most powerful men and continued to live its life where the conqueror entering the city wouldn’t charge in, but bow to its beauty.

Today it is the same, people that come to Ohrid are amazed by the beauty this little city has to offer and how it encourages you to understand and maybe even wonder – why certain places have been chosen to be different and unique in this world.

According to explorers, this is where Apostle Paul has resided on his journey dedicated to teaching and spreading the faith in Christ.

Ohrid is the center of Christianity for all Slavs, an archbishopric seat, a seat of schools and universities, the first ones in this region, and even further. To this day Ohrid remains a center of archaeological sites and discoveries. It's known as the city of 365 churches, one church for each day of the year. This fact has been evidenced in the 14th century by Evliya Çelebi in his travel books.

Ohrid is the prize for Biblical Macedonia – can be said or thought of only by those who have seen and felt it. Feel Ohrid for once in your life and you'll know why you should return and why it simply cannot be retold.

For those of you who have not yet visited this wonderland, I strongly encourage you to do so at least once, you will definitely have the time of you life and return home filled with wonderful memories.
