The bridge of wishes in Ohrid

This bridge was built as a need to shorten the road to the Church of Sts. John Kaneo from the very center and instead of the 1.5km journey that needs to pass through the old part of the city to reach the church. Now, this bridge needs only 140 meters as long. Being a love symbol is a better presentation for it. There are plates with the 12 horoscope signs in the middle of the path. The pedestrians can stop near the plate with their horoscope sign written on it to look at the lake towards the Monastery of St. Naum and make a wish.
