About The Event

The International Festival “Ohrid Folklore Waves” is a non-competitive event of  traditional and modern dances and music with objective to present and affirm traditional culture and folklore of numerous local and international participants from all over the world. On the festival may participate folkloric groups and individuals, children and youth folklore dance  groups, modern dance groups, vocal groups, instrumental groups and  choirs, as well as groups and performers from other art styles. The age  of participants is not limited. Along side festival activities we offer 5 days of unforgettable experience of siteseeing rich variety of churches, galleries, ancient sites, sandy beaches and crisp water, and also memorable gastronomic experience, as well as multitude of activities which explore the outdoors.

Ohrid is an immortal town on the mythical Balkans, a  magical hill of Macedonia whose primordial pulsation links ancient and  modern times forever… Ohrid has been a living town for 2 400 years, notable for having 365  churches, one for each day of the year, and is referred to as the  Macedonian Jerusalem. Archaeological finds indicate that Ohrid is one of  the oldest human settlements in all of Europe.

Lake Ohrid rightly deserves the name “Macedonia’s  freshwater sea”. Not only for its warm water blue color, which gains its  intensity from the sky blue color, but because of its size, this lake  gives an impression of being a sea.
