Kastoriá, a city which boasts a long fur trade tradition! The city that flourished during the 19th century due to fur trade is built on the shores of the beautiful lake Orestiáda, surrounded by imposing mountains.
Wander around the old neighbourhoods of Doltsó and Apozári, and admire the 19th century grand mansions owned by the rich fur traders of Kastoriá! Visit “Dragon’s Cave”, the only cave in Greece with fresh-water lakes. Winter sport fans should visit the Vitsi ski centre, and ski down beech-covered slopes. Kastoriá is also famous for its rich cultural events.
Every summer an exciting river party is organised on the banks of Aliákmonas river, while during the New Year’s Eve celebrations, the locals recreate a three-day Dionyssian custom called “ragoutsária”.
