“So I wait for you
like a lonely house
till you will see me again
and live in me.
Till then my windows ache.“

“Living is being happy: seeing, hearing, touching,…, diving into water and gazing at the sky, laughing and crying”
Milan Kundera, The book of Laughter and Forgetting
A walk on the hills of Saint Achilleios in the Small Prespa Lake can make everyone feel so great, even for the simplest things; for the fact that we breathe, we see, we walk peacefully and live. The clear atmosphere, the stunning view, the combination of different elements and colors create so easily an uplifting feeling. From the clear blue of sky and water, to the green of the fields and the white of the snow, the eye is travelling in tranquility and silence. On the right, the ruins of Saint Achilles byzantine church (basilica), the most important historical sight and landmark of this region, add in this wonderful lakescape the magnificence of past memories and glorious times.
