Plati, Opayia, Vromolimni, Observation Tower

  One kilometer east of the village of Platy is the church of Ayios Nikolaos, which according to the local tradition is dedicated to the Transfiguration of the Saviour and is called Ayia Sorita. Its simple exterior contrasts strongly with the lavishily painted interior decoration, which belongs to the end of the 16th c. Nearly Mikpi Prespa the visitor may see the ruins of the village of Opayia, which was abandoned before the 2nd World War due to malaria. The area limited by opayia, the Koula site and the asphalted road, includes the most sensitive part of the National Park core. Vromolimni ("Stinking Lake") is an internal body of water that communicates with the waters of Mikri Presra. Here large colonies of Pelicans and Cormorants can be found .Being such a delicate area, admission here is strictly forbidden. The visitor can watch the birds with binoculars or telescope from the observation post of the north, next to the road. This is one of the best places in Prespa for bird watching in spring.
