10. Sveti Naum, near Ohrid, Macedonia
I walked across the border between Albania and Macedonia near Lake Ohrid, and I could hear the mournful call of the peacocks that live at the 9th-century monastery before I finally reached it. Along with the peacocks, there is a hotel/spa on the grounds. It’s a peaceful place, and I was impressed at how well the architecture and feel of the hotel blended with the monastery.
Cost: Doubles start at €39.
