Boats on the Ohrid lake


Lake Profile
General Information
Description Lake Ohrid is the oldest lake in Europe and one of the oldest lakes in the world. Formed tectonically between 4 and 10 million years ago, the lake is situated in karstic, or limestone bedrock.

Lake Ohrid is located in the southwest part of the Republic of Macedonia, on the border between Macedonia and the Republic of Albania. Approximately two-thirds of the lake surface area belongs to Macedonia and one-third belongs to Albania.

Lake Ohrid is probably unique in the world in that its water is supplied mainly through spring water from numerous surface and underwater springs.
