Pogradec and the Lake Ohrid

The Albanian city of Pogradec stretches along the shore of the Lake Ohrid. One part of the lake is Albanian, the other Macedonian.

On the east side of the lake, the »Dry Mountain« or »Mali i Thale« reaches 2,200 meter. In almost all the seasons you will find snow on the top. The Lake Ohrid is the deepest of the Balkan lakes.

Traces of antiquity are testimonies of ancient and medieval civilizations. You can find such traces at the Monumental Cemetery of Selca (4' century BC), 30 km from Pogradec.

The Bridge of Goliku is a segment of the famous Roman road from Rome to Constantinople.

In the Lin peninsula you will find mosaic's dating from the VI-VII Century.

Among the peculiarities is the oldest and rarest kind of fish in the world, the Koran. The Koran is living only in Lake Ohrid and the Bajkal Lake in Russia. Living only in the deepest and cleanest waters, the Koran is enjoyed for its delicious meat.
