A few years ago Prilep 40km from Krusevo got another attraction that draws hundreds of visitors from the city and surrounding areas. A small lake with turquoise color, located in an abandoned marble mine above the village Belovodica is a real attractive destination for cooling a number of people, especially young. Because of the landscape around the lake, along with the massive marble blocks which truly is a unique sight, this lake receives the name Prilep Pamukkale lake or Marble lake. The lake is about 100 meters wide and deep around 40 meters. Lake can be reached on the regional road Prilep-Skopje, on the mountain pass Pletvar, when going to the village Belovodica.
Ohrid lake. Being the largest and most beautiful out of Macedonia’s three tectonic lakes, Lake Ohrid is about 30 kilometers (18 miles) long and round 288 meters (945 feet) deep. Its astonishingly clean and clear waters, together with the serene stillness of its mountain settings have captivated visitors since prehistoric times. While the lake is filled up by water from three rivers, most of Ohrid’s water comes from another lake – Prespa which is located on the other side of Mountain Galicica. Due to the high elevation, Prespa spills its water down to Ohrid through mountain springs, the most important ones being Ostrovo and Biljana, located near the monastery of St. Naum and Ohrid town, respectively. With its unique flora and fauna characteristic of the tertiary period (2-4 million years ago), Ohrid is one of Europe’s great biological reserves. Most of the lake’s plant and animal species are endemic and unique to Ohrid. The most famous among these are two types of the Ohrid trout, named letnica and belvica. It is one of Europe’s deepest and oldest lakes, preserving a unique aquatic ecosystem that is of worldwide importance, with more than 200 endemic species.
