Hotels in Ohrid and most of the smaller private accommodation have been fully booked for the New Year holidays. Hotelkeepers are delighted and hope that the 10% reduction in the turnover from the few months of 2016, will litten the upcoming holiday weekend.

Traditionally, besides domestic tourists being the largest number of visitors in Ohrid and Struga, tourists are coming from neighboring countries, mainly Bulgaria, Serbia, Albania and fewer of Greece.

There are guests from Montenegro and Croatia, through individual arrangements, and also a number of New Year revelers from Great Britain, Poland and Israel.

The three-day arrangements, are based on bed & breakfast and costs from 100 to 160 euros, and the package includes a festive New Year’s dinner.
