Peak Elen Vrv, National Park Galichica

From the center of Ohrid, the trail isn’t easy to see; however, from the gorgeous village of Velestovo, the trail is vivid, but it takes a closer glance to actually see it.

The trail also starts from the village of Velestovo, which is also 6 kilometers away from the center of Ohrid.

To get to Elen Peak, you will pass by historical, majestic, and absolutely gorgeous areas along the trail. You truly can feel the presence of Ohrid and its nature on this trail.

Ohrid is beautiful, and so are the surrounding mountains, such as Elen Vrv.

This peak has very historical and artistic regions and areas that give off an extra touch to Ohrid itself.
