Prespa: Endless Natural Wealth



prespes
Prespa is the name of two freshwater lakes in southeast Europe, shared by Albania, Greece and FYROM. They are the highest tectonic lakes in the Balkans, standing at an altitude of 853 m (2,798 ft).
The Great Prespa Lake, also known as Limni Megali Prespa, is divided among Albania, Greece and FYROM. The Small Prespa Lake is shared between Greece and Albania.
“Three Countries, Two Lakes, One Future” is the motto of Prespa Park, the transnational park protecting Prespa Lake. The area included in Prespa Park is of breathtaking natural beauty and great proof is the fact that it draws ever increasing numbers of tourists and eco-tourists.
Moreover, Agios Germanos is a village in the Prespes Municipality in West Macedonia. It is the only village in the Prespes region that has preserved all of the old stone houses. There, you can find the Information Center for everything you need to know about sightseeing.

From the settlement of the Fishermen (Psarades), someone can also rent one of the traditional wooden boats and take a ride in the calm waters of the lake. Anyone who ventures it, will be undoubtedly impressed by the painted rocks with Christian images in the southern part of the lake, given that in the 14th and 18th century hermits used to live in the area.

Furthermore, for gastronomy lovers, except for the fish and Florina peppers, the beans of the region which are cooked in many different ways, are very famous as well. The experience of the direct contact with the natural environment of exceptional beauty and biodiversity, fills the visitor with tranquility and evokes memories of a life away from big cities and stressful activities.

  1. It should be owned only by Macedonians and Albanians Greeks invaders h=should be kicked out. Now is the time……………

  2. The scum that SYRIZA made up of communist, Stalinist, Marxist, CRIMINAL anarchist and MURDERERS black block nationalizing our banks, stealing our money and flooding Greece with illegal scum.

    Tsipras who idolizes Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavaz wants to turn Greece into the toilet hole that his idols created in those countries.

    I rather vote for Samaras or Venizelos and even Golden Dawn then let them destroy Greece.

  3. Will someone report this fraudulent moron. A simple investigation of his IP Address–and that of the real “worldarts” would clear things up. The person perpetuating this hoax is detrimental to what a “forum” is all about.

    See, my theory is that Alex has already been axed from this website as a commentor due to his obnoxious behaviors previously and now he is creeping back in with the same demented intensity–stealing someone elses handle just to malign them and make them look bad.

    Hope who ever this is faces the strictest punishment for such acts.

    Hey real wordarts–we are waiting for your verification this is really you. Simply comment with your iconic photo many of us would recognize
    If your impostor can not do this–we will know for sure these photo-less rants are bogus and not really the “worldarts” we know.

  4. Republic of Macedonia holds the biggest portion of Prespa Lake .

    Of the total surface area, 176.3 km2 (68.07 sq mi) belongs to the Republic of Macedonia, 46.3 km2 (17.88 sq mi) to Albania and 36.4 km2 (14.05 sq mi) to Greece.

    So it’s a Macedonian lake. So, Kostas aka Alex, get your stench away from our lake.

  5. Dear descendent of self-identifying 20th century ethnic Bulgarians that decided to rename themselves “ethnic Macedonians”,

    a. You have ZERO to do with ancient Macedonians. ZERO. You are not an iota more Macedonian than any of your ethnic Bulgarian ancestors. In fact you are anti-Macedonian. All you do is substitute anything actually macedonian (aka Greek) with Bulgarian names. You shame yourself and your ethnic Bulgarian ancestors by pretending to be something you are not. Your apologists shame themselves by pretending not to your little transformation and manipulation of the name to threaten my SOVERIGN homeland. (exactly as Greece warning 20 years ago and were mocked by mountains of patronizing Greek hating ethnic cleansing RACIST bigots who are now trying to delete our very identity as Greeks)

    d. You have confused ancient place names with modern. Ancient Macedonia is located ENTIRELY in Greece… so get your slimy Nazi fingers away from Macedonia. Ancient Paeonia is yours.
