BOAT CRUISE

A Boat Cruise sail through one of the oldest lakes in Europe, experiencing the warm sun and a fresh spring breeze is just one of the benefits all participants receive as they enjoy sailing through Lake Ohrid, making their way to one of the oldest traditional restaurants that Macedonia has to offer – ‘The Island’ (Ostrovo).

VISIT OF ST. NAUM MONASTERY

Nearby ‘The Island’ (at 150 meters walking distance) one can find the St. Naum Monastery, founded by St. Naum in 905 AD, a disciple of Cyril and Methodius, a miracle healer, buried within the monastery itself. A common belief to this day is that anyone who touches his tomb will be cured of any disease, with those who place their ear over the tombstone of his sarcophagus, being able to hear Saint Naum’s still beating heart.

DINNER AT
'THE ISLAND'

‘The Island’ (Ostrovo), one of Macedonia’s oldest traditional restaurants, is formed on the natural springs of the Crn Drim River, protected by UNESCO and only accessible by a nonmotorized rowboat, to preserve the purity of the spring waters. A place of magic, participants here can be a part of some of Macedonia’s most beautiful and vibrant natural scenery, preserved in its pristine condition throughout the generations.
