Tour Features

Saint Naum & Boat trip Guaranteed excursion starting from Ohrid.

On this guaranteed excursion you will explore parts of North Macedonia and Ohrid Lake. Moreover, enjoy a boat trip in the springs and visit of Saint Naum Monastery. As with most Byzantine churches, St. Naum was chosen primarily for its location – on a high, rocky outcropping over the lake, above the deep forests and life-giving springs of the river Crn Drim. The monastery complex and church of Saint Naum were built originally at the turn of the tenth century by the monk with the same name. Macedonians believe you can still hear the saint’s heartbeat by pressing an ear to his stone coffin inside the church.

After touring the Monastery, you will board a small boat for a trip on the Springs of the Black Drin near St. Naum Monastery to view the pristine waters and beautiful scenery. After free time for lunch, you will also visit the museum on water: Bay of Bones to learn more about prehistoric times on the shores of Lake Ohrid.

Transfer back to Ohrid town.

So, uncover the mystery and history of the North Macedonia in this unique guaranteed excursion tour of the Saint Naum.

Itinerary

The tour will begin in Ohrid, Macedonia, the largest city on Lake Ohrid. It once had 365 churches, one for every day of the year, and has been referred to as a “Jerusalem of the Balkans.”

After meeting your guide you will travel south along Lake Ohrid to Saint Naum Monastery. As with most Byzantine churches, St. Naum was chosen primarily for its location – on a high, rocky outcropping over the lake, above the deep forests and life-giving springs of the river Crn Drim. The monastery complex and church of Saint Naum were built originally at the turn of the tenth century by the monk with the same name. Macedonians believe you can still hear the saint’s heartbeat by pressing an ear to his stone coffin inside the church. The icons of St. Naum are some of the best religious paintings in the Balkans.

After touring the Monastery, you will board a small boat for a trip on the Springs of the Black Drin near St. Naum Monastery to view the pristine waters and beautiful scenery. Be sure to watch for the Kingfishers as they dart through the water to catch their meal.

Free time for lunch at St. Naum.

Next, you will travel to the Bay of Bones. In prehistoric times Lake Ohrid was home to a settlement of pile dwellers who literally lived on top of the water, on a platform supported by up to 10,000 wooden piles anchored to the lake bed. The remains of the settlement were discovered at this spot and were gradually excavated by an underwater team between 1997 and 2005; the museum is an elaborate reconstruction of the settlement as archaeologists think it would have looked between 1200 and 600 B.C.

Travel back to Ohrid.
