Samuel’s Fortress, Ohrid, Republic of North Macedonia.
It is part of a medieval fortress that surrounded the capital of the First Bulgarian Kingdom of Ohrid, today Northern Macedonia, later named in honor of King Samuel.
Today, Samuel’s Fortress is one of Ohrid’s main attractions.
The highest part of Ohrid is covered by the central walls of the fortress, which are 10 to 16 meters high, and several defense towers.
One end of the outer wall descends obliquely to the west shore of Lake Ohrid in the area “Labin”.
The other end goes to the east, passes through the outer “Upper Gate”, covers the lower height of the Ohrid Ridge in the “Deboi” area and thence continues to the south and slopes downhill towards the lake.
