When planning the 10-day Balkan trip for us, it never occurred to Johny to explore Ohrid in our itinerary, and I would have been really angry at him for skipping one of the most beautiful destinations in Eastern Europe. I stumbled upon a picture of St. John at Kaneo on Instagram just a few days before we departed for our winter holiday, only then did I realize that this awe-inspiring piece of architecture is located in Ohrid, North Macedonia. I knew right away we had to add Ohrid to our list and it turned out to be an unmissable highlight to our journey.
Due to our tight schedule, a day trip to explore Ohrid from Skopje planned at last minute was all we could afford. Yet that one day was already enough for us both to fall deeply in love with this ancient town.
