Samuil’s Fortress

Samuil’s Fortress

 

It is a fortress in the old town of Ohrid, Republic of Macedonia. It was the capital of Macedonian Empire during the rule of Samuil in the middle-ages. Today, this historical monument is a major tourist attraction and was renovated in 2003.

According to recent excavations by Macedonian archaeologists, Samuil’s Fortress was alleged that this fortress was built on the place of an earlier fortification, dated to 4th century B.C., which was probably built by king Phillip II of Macedon.
