Tradition in Prespes


Aside from the thrive and cultivation of elephant beans, tradition in Prespes is equivalent to carp fishing, the ancient custom of bonfires, and the bronze musical instruments. Celebrations and festivities have always been gathering the crowds and thus, Prespian identity is being safeguarded.
