MADE BY NATURE FOR THE BENEFIT OF MEN
Have you ever thought of seeing something unique during your holiday? We ll know that human knowledge from centuries in the past combined with nature around can be useful for everyone. Let us see and enjoy all of these things together. Just 6 km away from Ohrid, in the village Kosel, is located the dead volcano Duvalo. Here you can feel the smell of sulfur hydrogen coming directly from the small craters and holes. The sulfur hydrogen crystallizes into sulfur dust, which the local population uses because of its healing power for skin diseases. Further, on the 20 th kilometer, following the rivers Koselska and Recicka, is the village Recica. The road to the village passes through colorful natural surrounding, where the silence makes you enjoy the sound of the river.
Into the village, we can see how human knowledge from the past, with the help of nature, can be combined in a useful way – by building rolling mills (whirlpools) where people wash their clothes, blankets, and other woollen covers, without any detergent, just by using the power of the water. Here we can enjoy and refresh before starting our way back. Cycling downhill, we can visit the place called Rajska Dolina where the endemic species of Ohrid trout are grown into fish ponds and can be served for the visiting guests. Just before the end, we can’t miss the opportunity to taste some of the local seasonal fruits – Ohrid cherry, strawberries, apples, plums…, at uncle Stojce’s yard, in the village Velgosti. These fruits are typical species, originated from this area, not treated chemically and present here for centuries.
