History

In the year of 1977, on the Ohrid Lake shore, in Struga, Hotel Drim was built.

Struga is Macedonia's second largest summer tourist destination and historical-cultural center. Struga is seat of Struga municipality.

According to the 2002 census, Struga had a population of approximetly 15,000. Struga situated on the north-western shore of Ohrid Lake, at an altitude of 695 meters above the sea level. Crni Drim river flows from the Ohrid lake and divides Struga in two districts.

Struga is connected with the border Kjafasan (12 km) using the E-852 road on the west and the junction with the E-65 international road is 7 km from Struga in the east, and connects this small town with Ohrid (15 km) and Skopje (170 km). The spirit of Struga is tender. Located on the shores of Lake Ohrid, the city is laced with bridges, dotted with delightful architecture, and linked by lanes. Everywhere its romantic soul is apparent. The Black Drim River flows through the heart of the city after it journeys from the springs near St. Naum through Lake Ohrid. From Struga it continues across Albania to the Adriatic Sea. Once known as "Enchalon" -Eel, Struga welcomes eels all the way from the Sargasso Sea.

Nowadays, Struga is better known for its annual international poetry festival, "The Struga Poetry Evenings". Poems are read from the bridges to add to their romance. Struga is the birthplace of the most eminent representatives of the Macedonian culture and national revival in 19th century, the brothers Constantine and Dimitar Miladinov. Since 1962 Constantine's famous poem "Longing for the South", traditionally opens this major world poetry festival.

Inspired by so many and ispiration to so many, we are here more than 30 years, succesfully building our legacy with quality and tradition.

Historically, the hotel is built on the site of the Grand Hotel, which people say it was a really nice hotel, built on the site where today is the national restaurant Struski Kepenci (in the garden of Hotel Drim), next to the Crn Drim river wooden bridge. Grand Hotel had a problem with underground waters that were present at its location and had a lot of trouble with flooding its basement and storage space. Hotel Drim construction started in 1974, and was officially opened in 1977 in the presence of almost the entire economic and political cream of the then Republic of Macedonia.

In the year of 2004, Hotel Drim becomes part of the AD Inex Drim company, providing a desire to make your vacation and relax time pure enjoyment, thanking to its history and tradition.

Our history is full with different events from any aspects. Growing up together with the city of Struga, we have been witnessing one small million of smiles.
