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.

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.
