Photos and Information about Samuels fortress
It was also interesting to visit Samuels fortress; which is just above the old part of Ohrid, Europe. While we were walking around; our guide gave us tons of facts about it and its history. But I will make the story short.
This fortress was actually built during the time of Philip II of Macedon. Later, in the 11th century when Ohri, Europe, is chosen for a capital of the Western Bulgarian Kingdom, Tsar Samuel resided here. This is why the ruins are named after him.
