SE­CRET OF THE LAKE Lake Ohrid, FYR of Mace­do­nia

Wanderlust Travel Magazine (UK) - - 360˚ Viewfinder -

Credit: Dream­stime There’s just some­thing about lakes. How­ever, all too of­ten with the big head­lin­ers – think Peru’s Lake Tit­i­caca and the Ital­ian Lakes – big crowds muddy the oth­er­wise calm sur­round­ings. There are still some that sneak un­der the radar, though: while the shim­mer­ing rip­ples of Mace­do­nia’s Lake Ohrid ( pic­tured) are hardly empty in the hot sum­mer months, its name­sake church-speck­led town, deep wa­ters (said to be the old­est in Europe) and wild hills can be ex­plored in peace if you pick the right time. It’s also one of Wanderlust co-founder Lyn Hughes’ ‘travel se­crets’ and her pick for a tourist-free lake­side view. For more of our top travel se­crets, turn to p24.
