Galicica National Park, Macedonia



Three in one


The view of Lake Prespa from Galichica National Park in Macedonia. The foreground and left of the photo is in Macedonia; Albania comes in from the right and makes up the majority of the photo and meets Macedonia’s and Greece’s borders in the lake. Greece is at the far side of the lake, roughly centre of this photo.

We didn’t cross the borders here, but we did cross into Albania as we drove around Lake Ohrid, which I’ll talk about in another post. It’s amazing how insignificant borders seem in photos like this, but how much the world has been shaped by what are often arbitrary lines drawn across a map!

A 40 minute adventurous hike/scramble/slide/climb up muddy cliff slopes through jungle infested with stinging plants, mosquitoes and ants brought me to a place where I could see half of the camp. Unfortunately, there were so many trees that my photos don’t show the majority of camp – this is less than a quarter of it. Note the golden roof of the monastery to the left under the smoke.


Some of my photos are turning out to be quite similar it seems! Unfortunately this is something to do with the fact that I can’t really leave the sheltered section of the camp I’m in due to the fact that I don’t have a permit to be here. For that reason, I haven’t started walking around with a camera just yet and have stuck to taking landscape images from my little area.
