Getting there & away
Buses to Struga (14km) leave roughly every 15 minutes (5am to 9pm) from stand 1 at the bus station (262 490; Ul Dimitar Vlahov). Enter through the back doors and pay the conductor (30MKD).
About 10 buses a day run between Ohrid and Skopje via Kičevo (380MKD, three hours, 167km). Another four go via Bitola (380MKD, four hours, 261km). The first route is shorter, faster and more scenic, so try to take it. There are at least six buses a day travelling to Bitola (170MKD, 1½ hours, 71km). Three of these continue on to Belgrade (1500MKD, about 12 hours, 692km).
There’s a branch of Hertz (261 237; Bul Turistička bb; 8am-10pm Mon-Fri, 8am-2pm Sat) in Ohrid.
Ohrid airport (OHD; 252 820; www.airports.com.mk) is served from only a handful of European cities – Skopje (Macedonian), Belgrade (JAT), Ljubljana (Adria), Zurich (Helvetic and Macedonian) and Vienna (Macedonian). A taxi to the airport, 7km north of Ohrid, costs 250MKD.
