There is a saying that for a thriving and long lived city, a nearby water source is the most important precondition. Most of the cities in antiquity were located either along a river flow, or on the coast of a lake or a sea. Many of the modern cities today still carry the same mark.
Struga has both, which makes her a member of a small and privileged group of places in the world, blessed with such nature gifts. Located on the coast of the magnificent and everlasting Ohrid Lake and along the arrays of the Black Drin River, which flows right out of the lake splitting the city in two halves, makes Struga a truly unique city in the Balkans and Europe.
A real pearl of the Balkan Peninsula.
Through the site we would like to present this remarkable city to the world community. Struga has been found by many to be truly an adorable place, one that people fall in love with at the first sight.
A city of poetry, culture, history and a long tradition, the majority of the population are Albanians around 57% and Macedonian community makes up to 32%.
In ancient Illyrian time the city was known as Enhalon. The Via Egnatia road that connected Rome with Thesaloniki and Constantinople passed through Struga.
We hope that the site will provide and maintain a link to the ancient city of Struga for everyone in the world who feels related in any way to this jewel of south-western Macedonia.
