The climate of Ohrid

Ohrid is a medium-sized city in southwestern North Macedonia on Lake Ohrid. In this lake lies the border with neighboring Albania. In the city is the ancient theater of Ohrid, which – along with the rest of the natural and cultural heritage of the Ohrid region – is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. This theater dates back to the second century BC and was built here by the Greeks. Until the collapse of Yugoslavia, the city was a popular holiday destination for Yugoslavians. The city has been investing heavily in recent years to regain this status.

According to Bridgat, Ohrid has a moderate continental climate, which is slightly influenced by the Mediterranean climates of the Mediterranean Sea and the Adriatic Sea. Due to this influence, the average daytime temperature in the summer period is a few degrees lower, but the average temperature in the winter months is slightly higher. Prolonged frost and night frost periods are therefore less likely to occur here. In the winter months there is on average the most precipitation, on the coldest days of the year it will come down as snow or sleet.
