Northwest Greece was Albanian despite the fact that Greeks have always lived there, and Albanians are not mentioned in this region by name until the early Byzantine Empire.

While Greeks....

Aristotle wrote in his work Meteorologica:

Quote:
Greek text:
"...ἀλλ’ ὥσπερ ὁ καλούμενος ἐπὶ Δευκαλίωνος κατακλυσμό ς· καὶ γὰρ οὗτος περὶ τὸν Ἑλληνικὸν ἐγένετο τόπον μάλιστα, καὶ τούτου περὶ τὴν Ἑλλάδα τὴν ἀρχαίαν. αὕτη δ’ ἐστὶν ἡ περὶ Δωδώνην καὶ τὸν Ἀχελῷον· οὗτος γὰρ πολλαχοῦ τὸ ῥεῦμα μεταβέβληκ εν· ᾤκουν γὰρ οἱ Σελλοὶ ἐνταῦθα καὶ οἱ καλούμενοι τότε μὲν Γραικοὶ νῦν δ’ Ἕλληνες..."

Translation:

"The deluge in the time of Deucalion, for instance, took place chiefly in the Greek world and in it especially about [ancient Hellas, the country about Dodona and the Achelous, a river which has often changed its course. Here the Selloi dwelt and those who were formerly called Graeci and now Hellenes."

Prove it.

But yes Greece is a very democratic country for allowing Macedonians to have a village festival once a year, despite the fact that minorities in other countries usually receive education in their own mother tongue, but Greece is a "true" democracy for allowing a small village festival...


I guess the US is not a democracy as it's public education system requires minorities to learn and be educated in English.

Let me ask you something, in what language are the Moslems in Thraki educated in my friend......Yes in Turkish along side Greek.....



I wonder how many Bulgarian language schools operate in FYROM.... Oh I forgot all of them (outside the Albanian ones)........

Quote:
And as for the Rainbow party, most Macedonians vote for mainstream parties like Pasok, Nea Demokratia, and the KKE, but from what I have seen, Pasok and KKE are the top choices for Macedonians. But then again, political attitudes tend to change at every election, and therefore you cannot determine the number of an ethnic group based on election votes.


Quote:
Those people who voted for Rainbow are basically the most extremist or most fanatic of the Macedonians in Greece.
All 4000 of them......

Florina is OK, sort of attractive for a Balkan town, but nothing special other than some pretty old buildings. Certainly can't compare with other beautiful towns and major touristic places in Greece, all in other parts of the country such as Nauplion, Monemvassia, Kalamata, Galaxidi, Nafpaktos, Pelion in the southern part of Greece or the islands and their towns such as Aegina, Spetses, Hydra, Poros, Andros, Syros, Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, Chania, Halki, Ikaria, Kos, Kalymnos, Rhodes, Symi, Skopelos, Skiathos, Chios, Lesbos, Corfu, Paxos, Ithaca, Zakynthos, Kefalonia, Lefkada and others that don't come to mind right away. All these places have a 'nicer' more cosmopolitan, yet traditional ambience with their beautiful, character-filled, well preserved architecture and their plethora of attractions for the many tourists who visit annually to enjoy, making them relatively better off than other parts of Greece. Even in the north, I'd say Litohoro near Mount Olympus, Kastoria, the Chalkidice peninsulas, Kavala, Parga and the Zagorahoria are the most beautiful places. Everyone has their own taste, but tourism as an indicator would confirm my choices. Florina is nice, but nothing special, certainly not for Greek standards!!

@Macedonia
Where is that new pedestrian zone planed? Is this near the river? Could you make some photo?

Florina was the place where I first entered Greece and later I visited Thessaloniki and Athens. I remember main street with small shops on both side and atmosphere of nice and quiet provincial town. Lovely and indeed gently people. Everyone who was asked on the street want to do his best to help me to find what I was asking.

Yes the new pedestrian zone is along the river, in the city's historic part.

Indeed it is from my (impartial sources) readings. If you have any related info or pics, please post them in the Bitola thread in the Makedonski forum or better yet create a new thread here.
