Prespa Lake

Prespa Lake is a transboundary lake in the Balkans shared by three countries: Northern Macedonia, Albania and Greece.

It is divided into two parts: Lake Great Prespa and Lake Little Prespa. The lake covers an area of about 274 square kilometres, most of which falls within the borders of northern Macedonia.

The lake’s natural beauty and ecological significance have led to its designation as a protected area. The lake basin is home to a rich and diverse ecosystem, including numerous bird species, fish and plants. It serves as an important stopover for migratory birds, making it a popular destination for birdwatchers and nature lovers. The region around Lake Prespa is also known for its cultural and historical significance.

There are several charming villages around the lake, each with its own character and traditional architecture. These villages offer a glimpse into the local way of life and provide opportunities to experience traditional Macedonian, Albanian and Greek cultures.

Conservation and preservation of the lake ecosystem are of paramount importance to the three countries bordering the lake.

Efforts are being made to protect biodiversity, support traditional ways of life and promote responsible tourism in the region.
