Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Struga is a town in the western part of the Republic of Macedonia, lying on the shores of Lake Ohrid. It is located on the coast of the magnificent Lake Ohrid and along the banks of the Black Drin River, which flows right out of the lake splitting the city in two sections. There are several cultural monuments in Struga and in its vicinity such as the Monastery of Kalishta, a few kilometers away from the town center, laying on the shore of Lake Ohrid. It is believed that it dates from the 16th century, with frescos from the 14th and the 15th centuries.
The Republic of Macedonia is a landlocked country on the Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe. The capital is Skopje, with 500,000 inhabitants, and there are a number of smaller cities, notably Bitola, Prilep, Tetovo, Kumanovo, Ohrid, Veles, Stip, Kocani, Gostivar and Strumica.
