Struga (Macedonian: Струга [ˈstruɡa] (About this soundlisten), Albanian: Struga/Strugë) is a town and popular tourist destination situated in the south-western region of North Macedonia, lying on the shore of Lake Ohrid. The town of Struga is the seat of Struga Municipality.
Much of the town’s income is through internal tourism. Struga’s location on Lake Ohrid makes it a slightly quieter and more peaceful experience than the more bustling Ohrid.
When visiting this quiet town of North Macedonia, there are a few other places that show the beauty and culture, like the clay chamber pots at the house of the Miladinovci Brothers,[who?] the old bazaar, the century old churches and mosques.
Before the evenings you can enjoy on 3 kinds of beaches called “Male beach” (maška plaža), “Female beach” (Ženska plaža) and Galeb (“Gull Beach”), located just before the estuary of the river Crn Drim (Black Drim) in its own flow, and between the two previous beaches.
Just in front of the “Male beach”, at the estuary of the river Crn Drim it is located the biggest 5 star Hotel Drim in Struga.
Out of the town there is another tourist place near the lake called Biser (Pearl), also a hotel.
Every August the Struga Poetry Evenings (SPE) are held at the “Poetry Bridge” (Macedonian: Струшки Вечери на Поезијата) and are attended by poets, writers and artists from across the world.
