If you visit Ohrid and Lake Ohrid, you should also visit the second largest city on the shores of the lake. It’s Struga. A city that is located on the shore of the lake and through which flows the river Crn Drim. It flows out of the lake itself and gives the city a special beauty. Struga is not only known as a place for tourism. The Miladinov brothers originate from the city. One of them, Konstantin Miladinov is the creator of the song “T’ga za jug”, the symbol of love and longing for the homeland, while they are in the far country. Though the author died more than 100 years ago, his descriptions of the natural beauties of the surrounding Lake Ohrid, as well as the light of the warm Macedonian sun that lighting this region, still cause bitterness and sorrow in the hearts when his verses are heard.
The international poetry manifestation “Struga Poetry Evenings” is held in Struga. It is the largest poetic review in the world, held every year in late August. From the distant 1961 to the present day, hundreds of poets from all over the world procreated at this manifestation, and some of them won the Golden Wreath of Poetry Award as well as the best poetry book in the Macedonian language “Miladinov Brothers”
