What people say

"The Church of St. John offers a captivating blend of history and natural beauty. Dating back to the 13th century, its Byzantine-style architecture and intricate frescoes rival those of Monastery Saint Naum. Yet, its greatest allure lies in its picturesque perch atop a rocky cliff, offering unrivaled views of azure waters and majestic mountains."
"Price: 3 euro Probably the most photographed location at the lake for the good reason. On a natural platform just above the water line is a small church with small church grounds and gardens. You can enjoy the location for free as well as the beach below and if you want to visit the inside of the church you can pay 3 euro entry fee"
"Discover the spiritual significance of Ohrid by visiting its numerous churches and monasteries. Admire the Church of St. John, perched on a cliff overlooking the lake and step inside the St. Sophia Church. These sacred sites offer a glimpse into Ohrid’s rich religious heritage. "

I absolutely love my lifestyle however can't lie tight budget is one of the downsides. Instead of giving up my travel dreams I just decided to become resourceful and find the perfect itineraries that still fit my tight budget and let me explore the world. Before every trip, I spend weeks planning and researching and it's one of my favourite parts of the adventure. However, I know it can be overwhelming and tedious at times so I decided to share my research and my itinerary with you. All places mentioned here are places where I have been/stayed/eaten myself and can give you an honest review. In this guide, you'll find an itinerary through the Balkans meant to take you through 6 countries throughout 26 days following my footsteps. I'll share with you my recommendations of where to stay and what to do as well as a detailed outline of the full cost (accommodation and transport). You'll also find links to the accommodations I stayed in and all the bus/train companies I used. You'll also find a spreadsheet so you can adjust the itinerary to your own needs.
