The Bay of the Bones Museum is an archaeological complex that offers the history of the region since ancient times. The open museum consists of reconstructed huts connected by a beautiful wooden bridge. The recreated settlement has 24 houses that surround the bridge and together depict the pile-dwelling located under the lake.  The museum showcases a variety of archaeological items that date back to the Bronze age, Iron Age and the Roman civilisation. What is fascinating is that this settlement is actually located underwater today and it is quiet surreal to walk through the area with the view of the lake to juxtapose with the rustic houses.

Covering the time frame from 600 BC to 13th century, you can see items including pottery pieces, bones of animals, tools, household artefacts and the main building which itself is a Roman relic! You can almost imagine the people in ancient Ohrid walking by and living what nature offered! If you are up for a challenge, take a dive in the lake with a museum guide to see the underwater excavations! There are around 6000 wooden piles at the bottom of the lake along with beautiful stone artefacts, ceramic vessels, bones of animals and also sacrificial altars that can be clearly seen here during the dive.
