Very good report from Ohrid

As someone who has never had the opportunity to visit Macedonia but spent more than a week in Poland (Warsaw, Krakow, Zakopane & TriCity), I'm wondering, how did you Poles feel when visiting Macedonia - like you're in some strange, exotic country or was there maybe some sense of familiarity?

Good question As I wrote in the first post, never before have I thought about visiting Macedonia. And was a bit curious about how it looks like.

At the very beginning, before the arrival, we felt
Quote:
like you're in some strange, exotic country
due to the fact, nobody has ever been there. Macedonia isn not a rich country and you can see differences between the West or Central Europe but it still a great place to see I recommend it to everyone

Quote:

I don't know why, but there was Maybe because of being on the same side of iron curtain, tragic history etc.
And of course macedonian people were very kind for us But i don't know how with the other nations

Wikipedia
Quote:
Saint Naum of Preslav (c. 830 – December 23, 910) was a medieval Slavonic scholar, writer and teacher. According to the hagiography of Saint Cyril and Saint Methodius by Saint Clement of Ohrid, Naum took part in their mission to Great Moravia and in 867 or 868 became a priest in Rome.
In 905 Naum founded a monastery at Lake Ohrid, which later received his name.

Sorry for this, but I had to write it.

About the Saints Kliment and Naum. I see you took the articles from Wikipedia. But I cannot agree with the part they are Bulgarians. Just as a note. Because we have an issue with Bulgaria on the identity of our nation. So it would be a compromise if we say that the Saints were Slavs. Neither Macedonians, nor Bulgarians.

it's really great to see some photos of this side of Europe.
Ohrid is a nice resort town and I think it's big for its population.
thanks for this photo tours.
