Around the Ohrid Lake through two countries

Let Vesna guide you on a free tour around Lake Ohrid. 😉 Enjoy reading.

Whisper

It’s been a busy period and took a month since my last post. However, while I was guiding I took the chance to make more photos of the different places I visited with the tourists. Let me take you around the Ohrid Lake, the 3rd oldest lake in the world, and show you the beauties that I see every day. Some of the photos are taken from the lake, some from the land.

2/3 of Ohrid Lake belongs to Macedonia and 1/3 to Albania. There are two cities on Macedonian side – Ohrid and Struga, and one city on Albania side – Pogradec, as well as many small villages.

We start this trip with the view from the mountain Galicica. The lake is surrounded by the National Park Galicica on Macedonian side and the mountain Mokra on the Albanian side of the lake.

The most famous village in Macedonia

Whisper

There are many villages in my country, some of them with dilapidated houses and only a few citizens, other rich with population and architecture, but all of them different. There is one special village in many ways, a village with a spirit and wealthy history. Located on the slopes of the mountain Jablanica the village Vevchani is waiting to be discovered.

The village architecture is something that will captivate you; houses built of stones, red bricks and wood. Everything looks warm and pleasant. And the locals are friendly and known by their hospitality.

The residents (3650) of the village planned to create their own independent state right after the Vevchani Emergency in 1987 because of the attempt of the Communist government to redirect the water springs of the village. It resulted in massive demonstrations from the people of Vevchani.

During the Vevchani Emergency for the first time in Yugoslavia, electrical hitting…

Skopje’s Old Bazaar – a place to intrigue and inspire

If you want a picturesque walk through the Old Bazaar in Skopje and go centuries back, join Vesna’s post tour. Enjoy your time. ☺

Whisper

The Ottomans ruled with Macedonia and the rest of the Balkan for about five centuries, from the end of XV till the beginning of XX century. Their influence during that period was strong in many aspects of the local’s life. That influence has left a mark that stays even today, especially vivid when visiting the old bazaars or charshija (the Turkish word for bazaar) in the modern Balkan cities.

The Old Bazaar in Skopje is a place with many hidden gems.  Going through it in a hurry is a big mistake. You need at least half a day for a complete experience so you can have time to walk through the small streets full of shops, relax in some of the restaurants for lunch, drinking Turkish coffee or tea, maybe some dessert or to enjoy the architecture and buying souvenirs.

Today I’ll take you on a tour of the Skopje’s Old…

Ivy walls

Spring is the time when I am very much alive. I like it when the trees and flowers are in full bloom. Grass is getting greener. People are getting happier.
Every alley in the old town lives a story of its own. This is the Ivy walls Alley in Ohrid. In spring, it gets greener too. I love it.

My precious Ohrid

Ohrid is a city of UNESCO. The old town is placed on a hill in the centar. There are lots of paved alleys all leading to the Ohrid square. Everybody love the arhitecture of the old Ohrid houses. Sometimes I let myself get lost wandering around like I am in a labyrinth. It’s good to feel like a tourist in your own birthplace.

Трансформација, маска или природна убавина

Whisper

Употребата на козметиката е позната уште од античко време. Споменато е „Боење на лицето“ во Стариот завет, Египјаните, Античките Грци и Римјаните, преферирале блед тен за која цел користеле бело олово во прав, креда, скроб, калајоксид и други состојки. Жена со потемен тен се сметала за жена на ниска класа, па почитуваните госпоѓи поминувале низ сè и сешто само да го добијат посакуваниот тен. Во Средниот век се одело дури и до тие крајности што жени умирале од употреба на арсен во производите за избелување.

Во 18-от век Луис XV направил да биде модерно за мажите да носат шминка базирана на олово. Театарските актери носеле тешка бела основа. Во доцниот 18-ти и раниот 19-ти век жените од Викторијанското доба носеле многу малку или воопшто не носеле шминка. Кралицата Викторија ја забранила шминката и сметала дека е соодветно само проститутките и слободните жени да се шминкаат. Прифатливо било само актерите, и…
