A Road Trip from Pisoderi to Prespes (part I)

Greece is worldwide known for its magic sea, beaches, and islands. However, there is also an unknown – slightly different, but equally attractive – mountainous side of Greece, remaining undiscovered by many tourists. Today, I want to make a virtual road trip with you, starting from my village Pisoderi.

Pisoderi (Greek: Πισοδέρι), meaning behind the mountain in the local dialect, is a village, situated 22 km away from the city of Florina, Greece. The photos presented below are of different seasons. Let’s start!

First stop: On your way from Florina and just 5 km before entering the village, you meet the ski resort, Vigla. This is where, almost 20 years ago, I started learning skiing. The ski center is located on Mount Verno and its highest peak is 2.000 m.

Going down a forest road.

Second stop: My village Pisoderi offers pure natural landscapes, fresh air, and silence for those searching for peace of mind.

The village’s church (Agia Paraskevi).

Third stop: By leaving Pisoderi and about 4 km away, you meet the Holy Monastery of Agia Triada. The Monastery was built in the year 1050 and is surrounded by captivating nature.
