At the heart of Prespes National Park lie the Prespa Lakes – Great Prespa, Small Prespa, and Mikri Prespa. These interconnected lakes form a crucial wetland ecosystem that provides a vital habitat for an astonishing array of wildlife. Great Prespa, one of the oldest and deepest lakes in Europe, is particularly noteworthy for its crystal-clear waters and stunning scenery. Small Prespa and Mikri Prespa add to the area’s ecological significance, creating a paradise for aquatic and birdlife.

Birdwatchers and ornithologists are drawn to Prespes National Park for its remarkable avian diversity. The lakes and surrounding wetlands serve as a critical stopover point for migratory birds on their journey between Europe and Africa. Over 260 bird species have been recorded in the area, including the iconic Dalmatian Pelican, which finds sanctuary here. The park is also home to several endemic species, such as the Prespa Trout and the Prespa Minnow, which are found nowhere else in the world.

Exploring the park’s lush forests and meadows reveals a rich tapestry of flora and fauna. Oak and beech forests blanket the hillsides, providing habitat for diverse mammals like deer, wild boar, and otters. The park’s floral diversity includes rare and endangered species, making it a botanical treasure trove for botanists and nature enthusiasts alike.

Prespes National Park is not only a sanctuary for wildlife but also a place steeped in history and culture. The surrounding villages, such as Agios Germanos and Psarades, are charming and have preserved their traditional way of life. The locals are known for their warm hospitality, and visitors can immerse themselves in the region’s cultural heritage by exploring ancient churches, monasteries, and traditional architecture.

One of the park’s most iconic cultural sites is the island of Agios Achilleios, situated in Great Prespa. This island is home to a historic monastery that dates back to the 10th century. The monastery, perched on a rocky outcrop, offers breathtaking views of the lake and surrounding mountains and is a testament to the enduring spiritual and cultural significance of the region.

For outdoor enthusiasts, Prespes National Park provides ample opportunities for exploration and adventure. Hiking trails crisscross the park, taking visitors through diverse landscapes, from lakeshores to mountain vistas. Water sports such as kayaking and canoeing are popular activities on the lakes, while cycling and horseback riding allow for a deeper connection with the natural surroundings.

As the sun sets over the tranquil waters of the Prespa Lakes, the park takes on a serene and magical quality. The stillness of the lakes mirrors the fading light, creating a sense of peace and tranquility that is truly therapeutic.
