‘Ohrid - The Roman Amphiheatre’


Here are some pictures of the Roman amphitheatre high in the hills of Ohrid town.
Maybe you prefer a photo from the WS.
They’re all somewhat similar photos. One was taken in the evening.

I have previously written that in the summer months Ohrid is quite crowded.
Perhaps I should nuance that by saying that by far most visitors can be found in the old town and along the waterfront. When you visit the higher located sights in the old town, you won't encounter that many tourists. As you can see in these photos.

A mathematician would presumably say that the number of visitors is inversely proportional to the elevation of the site on the hill.
For every 100 meters you have to climb on the hill, a number of visitors drop off :)

Information from the Bradt Travel Guide – Macedonia:

The Roman amphitheatre is just over 2.000 years old.
However, it has been buried for centuries. In the early 20th century, trial excavations confirmed its location.
During the following decades the excavations were put on hold until the 1960s.
By the 1990s the amphitheatre was fully uncovered and in the summer it is used for outdoor concerts and perfomances.
However, I did not notice the latter during my visit in July, 2018 …
