After a short drive our first stop is, Sarena Dzamija meaning Decorated Mosque, in Tetovo. The mosque was originally built in 1438 and financed by two local sisters. More than 30,000 eggs were used to prepare the paint and glaze used in the elaborate decorations.
From here we head to Ohrid, known as the "Jerusalem" of the Balkans, on the shores of Lake Ohrid. Ohrid is notable for once having 365 churches, one for each day of the year. Ohrid and Lake Ohrid are UNESCO Cultural and Heritage sites. After a walking tour of Ohrid, we will visit one the most popular Monasteries, the Monastery of Saint Naum, established in 905 by Saint Naum himself. Macedonians believe you can still hear the saint's heartbeat by pressing an ear to his stone coffin inside the church. After this visit we will return to Skopje.
