Prespa Lake | Western Macedonia

One of the villages of Prespa that is worth visiting is Agios Germanos. It is 48 km away from Florina. Built at an altitude of 1,040m, above Megali Prespa and close to the border with North Macedonia, it was once the head village of the region. Wander through the picturesque streets of the village to discover the beauty of the stone houses with traditional architecture. The homonymous Byzantine church of Agios Germanos stands out, dedicated to Germanos, Patriarch of Constantinople.


Evros | Thrace

Sericulture, the cultivation of mulberries, the production and trade of silk, were the production sector that made Soufli famous and gave the town economic and social prosperity. Silk, as well as other agricultural occupations and small businesses, such as viniculture and cart construction, brought wealth to Soufli, which became an important business and trade centre during the 19th and early 20th centuries in the broader region of Evros River.


Kozani | Western Macedonia

The village of Dilofo is one of the most renowned and best-preserved mastorochoria of the region of Voios. The first houses were built around 1600. Today, we can still admire its exceptional stone mansions.


Samothrace island | Thrace

The capital of Samothrace, Chora, has been declared a traditional settlement. Chora, still resisting the abandonment of old houses and “tourist development”, is hidden in a rocky slope of Mount Saos, because of the fear of pirates in earlier times, while it is still “guarded” to the present by the Tower of Palamidis Gatelouzos.

Paxos Island | Ionian Islands

Gaios is the capital of Paxos and its main port. It’s a picturesque, natural harbor, “protected” by the nearby islands of Agios Nikolaos and Panagia, thus forming an impressive “fjord”.
On the lively waterfront there are taverns, cafes, bars and small shops to meet your needs.
