I travelled to Ohrid from Skopje, as more travellers do. There are frequent buses from the North Macedonian capital, and the journey takes approximately 3 hours.

One of the most popular bus companies for this trip is Galeb, which I used. They depart from Skopje’s bus station daily at 06:00, 08:00, 10:00, 12:00, 14:00, 16:30, and 18:30. I took the bus at 8 am and the cost is 520 denars (approx. €8.5). The journey has a few different stops on the way, but their buses were quite comfortable so it didn’t feel like a long trip.

When you arrive in Ohrid, the bus station is located about 30 minutes walking from the city, so it’s more convenient to get a taxi. You shouldn’t pay much more than 200 Macedonian denars (approx. €3). Taxis leave from outside the bus station, so this is the option I took as I was carrying luggage. ......
