One of the most ancient lakes in Europe, Lake Ohrid boasts archeological treasures.
Denis Loctier, euronews: “Scuba divers are attracted to Lake Ohrid, one of the deepest and most ancient lakes in Europe, where adventurers can find true archeological treasures on its floor.”
Known for its unique biodiversity, Lake Ohrid revealed its hidden history when a local diver, Milutin Sekuloski, discovered remnants of a Bronze Age settlement.
*Milutin Sekuloski, diving instructor trainer, Amfora diving center:*“Why do many tourists want to dive here? To see the authentic artefacts of the prehistoric settlement from 3200 years ago. Many want to take photos and videos underwater.”
Tourists can visit the reconstructed lake village and take an hour-long dive to find pieces of ancient ceramics, bones, tools and even jewelry on the lake floor.
