Florina is a town in mountainous northwestern Macedonia, Greece and its motto is, ‘Where Greece begins’. It lies in the central part of Florina Prefecture, of which it is the capital. Florina belongs to the periphery of West Macedonia. It is in a wooded valley about 13 km south of the border with the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.


The area is very beautiful, with rugged mountain scenery, great lakes (Mikri and Meghali Prespa – small and Big Prespa). In Mikri Prespa you will encounter a little-known small isle, Aghios Achileios, with a gorgeous view of the region. Once in the area do not forget to visit the picturesque village of Psarades by the Big Prespa lake. In this small village with many stone built old houses you will find fresh fish and peace of mind and soul.
