Lake Ohrid on the border between Albania and North Macedonia dates back to pre-glacial times. It’s the only remaining home in the World for over 200 freshwater species. It is one of Europe’s deepest and oldest lakes. Ancient fishermen settlements on wooden piles from the Bronze Age have been found along the shores of the lake. Ohrid town is one of the oldest human settlements in Europe. It represents the best-preserved and most complete collection of ancient city architecture of this part of Europe. The architects built churches here that would become the model for how to build churches for hundreds of years afterwards.
