Kastoria and Lake at winter, before it gets covered with ice

Welcome to Kastoria!

The city of Kastoria lies in West Macedonia, Hellas/Greece, and is the capital of the Kastoria Prefecture. It is built amphitheatrically around a peninsula that shoots into Orestiada Lake and seems to emerge through it. This unique city layout, facing both to the north and to the south, caressed by the lake water and combined with the lush greenery surrounding it, highlights its unsurpassed beauty.

Kastoria is a lively city, well worthy of the interest of international and Greek travelers. Its natural wealth, as well as the large number of monuments from various historical eras, form a combination of unique beauty. Apart from the numerous Byzantine churches at various parts of the city, together with the relics of city walls and old mansions, excavations during the last few years have brought to the surface many important archaeological finds that shed light on the historical course of the area.

Bird watching around Orestiada Lake attracts many enthusiasts. Apart from bird watching, Kastoria offers a first-rate chance to go shopping. Local fur and leather production and tailoring ensure that you will find the best prices for such items of clothing, often exceptional bargains.

Kastoria has always been the basis for many excursions in the area, even more so now that the new Egnatia National road gets you to Thessaloniki in less than two hours; to Vergina (location of the alleged grave of King Philippos, father to Alexander the Great of Macedonia) in less than one and a half hours; to Nymphaeon (the wolf and brown bear protection area) in three-quarters of an hour; to the utopic scenery of the Prespes lakes in around one hour; to the petrified forest and its Museum of Palaeontology in Nostimo Village in one-half hour; to the 7500 year-old prehistoric lake settlement in Dispilio in only ten minutes, and to Nestorio in less than half-an-hour, a world-renowned site for concerts, camping, nature, and outstanding scenery.
