Today in travel we will talk about a beautiful city, Pogradec. Situated on the shores of one of Europe’s deepest and oldest lakes, the Ohrid Lake.
It is a very lovely place with lots of tradition, beautiful scenery and delicious food.
We will introduce a small part of Pogradec called Drilon. There is a small river which streams in Ohrid lake.
It is located 4 km from Pogradec with an incomparable view. The place is rich in greenery and has a variety of animals. It used to be King Zog favorite place to spend his holidays and also Enver Hoxha (the leader of Albania for 41 years) liked to spend his holidays there. You can also go and visit his house there, which has turned into a hotel and restaurant, like a small museum.
Through the year it is all green, and in winter time it is all white.
There are small boats where you can sail around Drilon and enjoy the view. The river you can find swans, full of charm, ducks, turtles, frogs and a lot of fish.
There is a bridge which connects one shore to the other, it is like a small island where you can find a restaurant and a bar. You can enjoy the nature while drinking a coffee or while having a delicious meal.
Characteristic fish of Pogradec is Belushka. You can find this kind of fish only in Ohrid lake. There are also other kinds like Koran and Trout.
