Cooking with the Locals: Your day starts with the meeting with the local guide and the transfer to St. Naum Monastery. The Monastery of Saint Naum is an Eastern Orthodox monastery in the Republic of Macedonia, named after the medieval Saint Naum who founded it. The monastery was established in the Bulgarian Empire in 905 by St Naum of Ohrid himself. St Naum is also buried in the church. After the visit of the Monastery and the church, you will be transferred to Peshtani village for a visit of the Museum on Water. On the southern coast of Gradiste Peninsula in the Bay of Bones, a pile-dwelling settlement has been erected, which in the past was spreading at a total surface of 8.500 m2.
Bay of the Bones is an authentic reconstruction of a part of the pile-dwelling settlement, dating back between 1200 and 700 BC. A Roman military fortification (Gradiste) has been reconstructed on the hill above the Bay of Bones simultaneously with constructing the pile-dwelling settlement and the Water Museum. The walls of the fortification that once had protected the Roman Empire from its enemies are once again lifted up on the hill near Gradiste. The Roman fortress is connected with the settlement in order tourists and visitors to be given an extraordinary opportunity to experience time travel, from prehistoric to ancient times and vice versa.
Then we will be transfer to a small village in Ohrid when we will have a tasty lunch in one of the best restaurants in Ohrid, where we will be cooking with locals chefs, barbecue in the guest-house (Restaurant Ristos Guest House) and learn about traditional cooking meals. After this we will prepare your own lunch with the help of the local family in a traditional village on the shores of Ohrid Lake. The end of tour.
