to go there :

you can reach Ohrid from Skopje in bus (3hours) or from Bitola (1h20), The bus station is a bit far from the center but it definitely desserve a visit.

there is an airport near the city with flights to germany and switzerland with lowcost and from slovenia , UK and many places in Europe.

to sleep :

the best way to have a cheap sleep and a nice moment is to rent a place in local houses with local people and local rakia to enjoy the meeting.

hostels are expensive and hospitality system is not yet really good so u wont find people on couchsurfing, hospitalityclub or globalfreeloaders.

Come to see it and enjoy OHRID the pearl of the lake and of Macedonia.
