Beautiful Ohrid
Remarkable architecture and the vast number of churches

Nestled on the eastern shores of Lake Ohrid in the Republic of Macedonia, lies the city of Ohrid.  The seventh-largest city in Macedonia, Ohrid is notable for it's architecture and the vast number of churches that it holds.  It is noted for once having 365 different churches, one for each day of the year, and is considered the “Macedonian Jerusalem”.  The city itself is also extremely rich in homes, monuments, and other wonderful architectural buildings that make it a wonderful place to vacation.  Since there were so many different different cultural and religious influences, Ohrid is credited as being the likely birthplace of the Cyrillic alphabet, which was noted as being created by St. Clement of Ohrid.

Since it has such a reputation for the number of churches that it holds, there are some churches in Ohrid that you just cannot miss while you vacation in this wonderful city.  Some of the most noted churches include: the Church of St. Sophia, the Church of St. John at Kaneo, the Church of St. Clement, the Church of St. Petka, the Church of St. George, and the Church of St. Stephan.  There are many great museums in Ohrid as well that will offer you a wonderful tour through the culture and history of the city as well as Macedonia.  There is the Museum of Slavic Writing culture, which will take visitors through all the different alphabetical transformations that their language has gone through.  There are also many different museums and buildings that are devoted to the Slavic language and literacy.  Ohrid is not only a holy center in the region, but it is also the source of knowledge and pan-Slavic literacy.  One of the restored churches, at Plashnik, was actually one of the oldest Universities in the world, and dates back to before the 10th century.

There are also several events that are held in Ohrid each year that visitors to the beautiful city cannot miss.  There is the Ohrid Summer Festival, which is an annual theater and musical festival from July to August.  The Balkan Festival of Folk Songs and Dances is held at the beginning of July and celebrates the folklore music and dances of the Macedonian past.  And, the Balkan Music Square Festival, which is held in August each year.  During this festival, the whole Balkan peninsula participates and ethno musicians from all over the area come to Ohrid to celebrate their music and culture.

While the city is famous for it's music and religious ties, there are many other wonderful places to visit and things to do here in Ohrid.  During your vacation here in this beautiful city, the best way to experience all that it has to offer is to find a private vacation rental.  These vacation rentals offer you a private view and experience that you just cannot get from a large hotel or inn.

About Milan Miki
Hi, I’m Miki - Author of the bestselling book "Manual For Vacation Rental Owners – 100 Tips for Successful Renting" and I'm the daddy of TravelPorch.com - my favourite portal for travel videos! :-) I also write the travel blog on LinoTravel.com to help holiday home owners and travelers come together.

Vacation rentals and holiday rentals (just check the countles travel directories) are a great alternative for those who wish to have more privacy and space to maneuver, something that hotels don't really have. Staying in a hotel involves tipping porters and valets; there is the added expense of dining out daily. Just like there are hotels everywhere, there are vacation rentals and holiday homes all over the world ready to be booked.

From the initial dream of a vacation in a luxury villa, through the entire trip, every step should be stress free and enjoyable.

I'm offering quality advertising for vacation rentals on my specialized web site ArrangeYourVacation.com and travel advice and the best travel websites on my vacation rentals blog. My client satisfaction rate is extremely high due to my personal contact with each traveler and vacation rental owner.
