Photographer's Note

This is the floating pedestrians bridge, that connects since 2000 or 2001 the small island of Agios Achileios with the western bank of Mikri (small) Prespa lake. Until that year the only way you could reach the island was by the traditional wooden boats of the lake, called "Plaves" (CHECK HERE).

The island was inhabited since the Neolithic Era and the most important monument are the ruins of the magnificent Basilica of Agios Achileios, which was constructed by Tzar Samuel in the 11th century.

Every summer an important festival takes place in this picturesque island, and that's a good opportunity to visit it, although I think that during winter you could enjoy more of its peaceful atmosphere.

***MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EVERYBODY!***
