    • Travel tips for Ohrid to Thessaloniki please

      by monkeyrope Online Now Sep 4, 2015 at 6:47 AM

      Came across this great site and would be most obliged if someone could cast some light on the latest travel options for this trip in 1 weeks time (appreciate subject has been addressed before... but much dated).
      From my research suggested appears:
      Bus Ohrid to Bitola
      Macedonian Taxi Bitola to Florina
      Bus Florina to Thessaloniki
      We were considering either Sunday 13th or alternatively Saturday 12th if Sunday schedules tricky?
      Any bus schedules available?
      How much is a realistic taxi cost for Bitola - Florina? and can someone suggest a trusted person/ operator?
      Is a taxi ride from Ohrid to Florina viable and at what price? (May be able to hook up with 2 other people if anyone interested to share?)
      With all the chaos re the migrant flood north from Greece to Skopje, has the border at Niki also been hit?
      Any assistance would be most appreciated!
      Thanks Guys

      Transport Sv Naum to Recen

      by DimaS22 Online Now Apr 20, 2013 at 7:11 AM

      Hi, in beginning of June I'm planning to go Ohrid-Pogradec-Brajcino. Hence have a couple of questions:
      is there a bus from Orhid to Sv Naum border crossing? and how frequent/reliable it is?
      would it be easy to find budget accommodation in Pogradec/Tushemisht? Staying in a private house is ideal.
      Are there any taxis around Sv Naum that we could hire all the way to Brajcino (90km), how much would it potentially cost?

      Thank you in advance, all advice and experience are greatly appreciated!

      hey guys,
      was hoping to get an update from the thread that was down below that was 4 years old. Is it possible to take a bus from Thessaloniki to Ohrid or does the journey still require a taxi change from Florina to Bitola?

      Buying bus tickets in advance

      by infinity-syndrome Online Now Aug 20, 2011 at 10:21 AM

      I plan to visit Ohrid for one day in OCTOBER and then go to Skopje. Do I need to buy bus tickets to Skopje in advance? In some forums I read that tickets should be bought at least 2 days earlier before the trip, but it was all concerning summer. If yes - can I purchase tickets online somehow?

      Cooking class for the VT EuroMeet

      by EuroMeet-MKD-2011 Online Now Sep 3, 2010 at 8:07 AM

      Hi fellow travellers,
      We have unique opportunity to have cooking class organised for us on the last day of the meet, 30th of May.
      We will be learning how to prepare traditional Macedonia dishes...
      As that day is more or less free time for everybody, with alternative half & full day sightseeing tours.
      If you are not going to any of the tours, you might consider cooking class.
      We have to have good number of participants, at least 12 to be worth while for us and the cook. If we have more than we can make more groups.
      Let me know what you think, is cooking class something you would like to do???
      I will link this with the main EuroMeet page for any feedback.

      koji restoran u Ohridu je za preporučiti za lokalne specijalitete.
