The beauties of Ohrid in winter. Since I’m into aerial photography and I already have a big archive of Ohrid aerial photos during all seasons, I have decided to showcase some of the photos that were taken during the last winter.

Tsar Samuil’s Fortress- In Byzantine times, Ohrid was a large, important city and cultural center. For a short time in the early 11th century, it was also the capital of a Slavic empire ruled by Czar Samuel. His fortress, situated on the hill in the center of modern-day Ohrid, crowns the city.

The Ancient theatre of Ohrid of the Hellenistic period is located in Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. It was built in 200 BC and is the only Hellenistic-type theatre in the country as the other three in Scupi, Stobi and Heraklea Lynkestis are from Roman times. Source Wikipedia
