Recipe for a new hotel in Ohrid: Torch a forest, cut trees and attack with excavators


Civil initiative “Ohrid SOS” reacts to building large object on one of the most attractive locations of Ohrid coastline. It is located near the hotel “Inex”, just below the villa of MOI, where a hotel from the chain “Small Luxury Hotels” will be build.
According to the announcements, the building will be spread over an area of seven thousand square meters. It is envisaged to be built 50 rooms with 120 beds, and the entire investment will cost about 12 million euros.
It is a hotel chain which is known in the world with over 500 facilities on all continents.
In the same area, on 24th of July 2011, there was a fire, but it remains a mystery to this day.
On the part that is now projected for construction, pine and spruce trees in an area of over 500 square meters were burned.
Civil initiative “Ohrid SOS” indicates that madness called “de-naturalization of Ohrid” does not stop. They say that nature again bowed before excavators and that what is happening is really alarming!
– The planned projects would likely mean a loss of protection of UNESCO which Ohrid and the lake have since 1980. We are trying to solve the problem by institutional way, but the fight is long and uncertain. Therefore, we seek the support of all citizens of the Republic of Macedonia and abroad. Join our fight to save Ohrid Lake. Let us show that we do not want the natural resources of Macedonia to be sold for a small amount of money. Nature has no price – say “Ohrid SOS”, who recently also raised a strong voice in protecting Studenchica swamp.
This is not the first time to destroy hundreds of trees to satisfy one’s appetite. Similarly, in the old part of Ohrid, under Plaoshnik, dozens and dozens of trees was cut in order to build a sculpture studio for honorary citizen of Ohrid, academician Tome Serafimoski.
Later, the studio, which was to be permanent ownership of the city, was put on sale and millions of profit was made of it.
