Epiphany in Ohrid

    Epiphany in Ohrid is one of the most massive religious events in Orthodoxy, according to the number of visitors and believers who regardless of the cold water temperatures are entering in the lake, in order to catch the Holy Cross. It is an act of consecration of the lake’s waters. It is held on 19th of January when many citizens are baptised in the holy water of the lake as a symbol of this huge holiday, the baptism of Jesus Christ by St John in the river of Jordan.
