A CITY-MUSEUM UNDER PROTECTION OF UNESCO, A PEARL OF MACEDONIA
Ohrid is one of the oldest settlements in Macedonia, its origin dates back to the antique period. Nowadays, the city is the most developed as well as the most attractive place for tourists in the Republic of Macedonia.
0hrid is a city in the south-western part of the Republic of Macedonia onto the north-eastern shore of Lake Ohrid. Traffic connections are towards Skopje, Bitola, Debar and Republic Albania. It is located along Via Egnatia, which used to connect Adriatic Sea and White Sea, and that was an important circumstance for develop-ment of Ohrid in the past. There is Ohrid Airport in the vicinity of Ohrid, it is air traffic connection to certain foreign destinati-ons. Water traffic in Lake Ohrid does not have an important role, it is used for tourists sightseeing and fishing. There is not a railway station and that is the only disadva-ntage. In the 3rd cen-tury BC, there was Lychnidos instead of the present Ohrid. This important and fortified place was conquered by Roman gover-ning and it be-came an important settlement along the roadof Via Egnatia. Lychnidos as a rich and fortified city fell under Byzantine rule. There were fights between Slavic tribes and Byzantine army in the 6th and 7th century. After conquering the city by Slays Lychnidos was renamed as Ohrid. In 879 Ohrid became Episcopal seat and in 886 by arrival of St. Kliment and St. Naum, this settlement grew into cultural centre. These disciples of St. Cyril and St. Methodius started spreading Slav literacy and literature. Ohrid was the capital of Macedonian state during the rule of tsar Samuil. The fortress is well preserved fortification in the old part of the city, the oldest data for this fortress date back to 476. After Samuil’s death the fortress was destroyed and again it was renewed. It was also used during Turkish Empire. Ohrid had developed crafts and trade and it represented an economic center during 12th and 13th century.
After Balkan Wars, population figures in Ohrid were decreased due to Turks migration. There is low development during the period between the First World War and the Second World War. Population and economic progress was marked after the Second World War. Population growth has been marked since the period after wars: there were 11.169 in-habitants in 1948, over 39.093 in-habitants 1981 and approximate-y 50.000 inhabitants till 2002. The population figures were doubled from 1961 to 1994. Ohrid has an eminent tourist function in the wider region. Important income of Ohrid’s economy has been obtained by fishing, industry and craftsman-ship. Having developed city functions and developed tertiary and secondary section, Ohrid represents a center for the surrounding gravitation area. Anyway, whenever we refer to its tourist importance, Ohrid has great attractive power which is spread beyond state borders.
