The Robevi House is a famous and historic building in Ohrid, North Macedonia. It was built in its current state in 1863–1864 by Todor Petkov from a village Gari near Debar. Today the house is a protected cultural monument and belongs to the Institute for Protection of Cultural Monuments and National Museum.
The building of the first Robevi house was finished on 15 April 1827, as witnessed by the inscription on the marbled flagstone it is a traditional Ottoman Turkish house architecture. This famous Ohrid merchant family lived in the house for 35 years when between 1861–1862 a famous criminal from Ohrid Ustref Beg burnt it to the ground.

This place has been shut down for public for almost two years now (2 tourist season), and when asked the personal working there say it is because of "renovation" and don't know when it will open. Once it does i will change my review.

Ohrid developed very specific architecture with tight narrow streets and tunnels (houses built over the streets). The houses had tiny yards usually enclosed in the ground floor, and the houses grew over the streets on the upper floors since the locations were small. The steep terrain enabled everybody to have a good view of the lake and because of the strong sun the houses were painted white, so they would reflect the sun. Because of the winds from the lake the houses in Ohrid don’t have the open spaces that traditional houses in other towns in Macedonia have. Interesting houses can be seen all over the old town but the best examples are along “Car Samoil” and “Ilindenska” streets. Robevci & Uranija houses are the two best examples of traditional architecture. They are houses of very rich families (normally the houses were not this big). They have been turned into museums today offering exhibits which include traditional wood carvings, furniture, costumes, photographs and personal possessions from XIX century. On the top level of Robevci house, there is great view over the old part of the city and Lake Ohrid!
