Prespes National Park

The most likely origin of the name "Prespa" comes from the Latin "praesepe" which means “manger”, as the lakes are in the middle of a basin that hosts a vast wealth of wildlife.

The lakes are considered to be one of the most important biotopes in Europe.

Mikri and Megali Prespa are situated at an altitude of 850 meters.

3 countries, 2 lakes and mountains whose peaks reach the 2.000 meters height.272 species of birds are hosted in the area and the

largest colony of dalmatian pelicans lives and breed among them. There are about 1.200 pairs and almost 500 pairs of the great white pelican. It is the only area in Europe that breeds both species in such large numbers. Over 1.500 species of plants, 9 endemic freshwater species, 60 mammal species, such as bears, wolves, deer and much more are part of the natural wealth of the area.The area of the National Park measures 195 sq. km. of which 82 sq. km. are covered by the Lakes’ water.
