Samuil's fortress in Ohrid

Samuil's Fortress is a fortress in the old town of Ohrid, built by Samuil, the most successful ruler of Macedonia (and most of the Balkans) 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, it 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, father of Alexander the Great.
