Nets, now drying on poles, yield pastrmka, a firm, pinkish lake trout, and jegulja, or eels, which bring high prices inBeograd. Forty-pound carp also are plentiful. The sleepy town of Ohrid, today a small summer resort, once was an importantway station ontheRoman Empire road from the Adriatic to Constantinople (Istanbul).
