Spending Money and Clothes

Together with my wife will be visiting Macedonia between 14th October and 30th October, and will be going around Macedonia. I have 2 questions:

  1. Is €100 per day enough for lunch, dinner and some museums/attractions entrance fees? Hotels, transport and personal guide are covered already. We will be staying and visiting these places and others: Skopje, Mavrovo, Ohrid, Bitola, Krusevo, Strumica, Berovo, Kratovo and other places such as canyons, lakes and mountains.

  2. I assume…

Fishing on Lake Ohrid

Any day/half-day tours I can join? I'm looking for an outfit that provides the necessary fishing tackle and takes you out onto the lake for some lazy fishing.

Can't seem to find any info online but I bet something's lurking out there that I've missed. Probably like how my fishing will go.

Macedonia with a kid

Dear travellers,
I am planning to backpack a bit around Ohrid lake with my 5 year old son for 2 weeks this summer. Now I am reading about this place and making plans. Is it safe for a girl and a kid to travel with a tent there? Can you recommend any camping site? What about the language? I speak English, Russian and French - will some of these help to manage everyday things or is it better to take a phraze book? All tips are the most welcome )

Bitola

Bitola was once an important crossroad to Balkans' big cities and as such it has some interesting buildings. These are mainly spread along Bitola's now pedestrianised Shiroka St. The old town is nice too.

Practical info
I did it on my way from Ohrid to Skopje. Possible to leave luggage at bus station. I was hoping to continue to Skopje by train from the train station next door, but there were no trains to Skopje due to landslides. Also, there's some beautiful nature around Bitola, but visiting…

St John of Bigor, Mavrovo NP

Sveti Jovan Bigorski (St John of Bigor) is inside Mavrovo NP. The guide books often describe it as a fairytale complex in nature's beauty spot; this is deservedly so. It's a beautiful place to visit. The road views to there are great and they would be even nicer if there weren't some industries like hydroelectric or gravel extraction plants; the monastery is lovely and the natural setting is nice too.

Practical info
The monastery is ideally visited on the expanded tour of Mavrovo NP. I did it on…

Visiting Ohrid - Currency questions!

Hey

I was wondering what the best way to carry currency is. I currently have euros, should I just take Euro's and then exchange them in the airport or is there a better way to exchange currency for 5 nights in Ohrid?!

Skopje to Pristina Airport early in the morning?

Hello,

I will be staying in Skopje until June 19 (Sunday), when I have to catch a flight from Pristina at 10AM.
Is it possible to catch a bus or minivan that leaves to Pristina very early? I'd like to be at the airport at 9AM. Or would you recommend to me to spend the night in Pristina?

Ohrid - Korce via Galicica NP and Lake Prespa

Hi,

Will be going Macedonia and Albania soon and I'd like to go from Ohrid to Korce. I've already been to Lake Ohrid and Sveti Naum so looking to try a different route. One interesting option might be to go across the Galicica national park mountain road and then south on the bank of Lake Prespa.

I know you can get a bus from Ohrid to Sv. Naum which would get you to the bottom of the mountain road. In Albania there is a bus from Liqenas to Korce. Is there any bus to go across the mountain…
