Είναι αλήθεια ότι η Φλώρινα είναι σχεδόν άγνωστη στους περισσότερους. Η πόλη δε λέει και πολλά όμως τα περίχωρα (και κυρίως οι πρέσπες ) είναι πανέμορφα!
Και κάτι άλλο...
Η Φλώρινα είναι γνωστή και για την εξαιρετική παραγωγή φασολιών ! Τα φλωρινιώτικα φασόλια είναι τα καλύτερα σε όλη την Ελλάδα και όχι μόνο! :)

The buildings near the small river look beautiful but some are in urgent need or restoration. I hope that they are listed buildings so what arxeos fears will never happen. And this brings another question: When the city or government enlists your building shouldn't it provide you with some funds/subsidies/cheap loans to restore it? Because what is your advantage if the guys in other regions of the city build "polykatoikies" on their properties - making good money - and you just watch it rotten because you know that the investment will hardly pay-off. Or why the government imposes you something that is advantageous to the whole city (improving of course the looks and preserving the heritage) but costs money only to you?


...
It is also interesting how they tried to give an old - traditional west macedonian look to the building of the prefecture of Florina but I am not so sure that they succeeded.

^^ The city approved last year to renovate the historic buildings along the river. Once they are renovated, they will turn into small shops, cafes, and clubs. They already renovated the street and bridge, and made a new walkway for a pedestrian zone. The whole point of this is to make this part of town a new social center for young people to gather and hang out, while the already existing pedestrian zone in the center of the town is to be reserved for the "older" generations. I myself am very excited about the project.

nice photos! Florina is indeed a very special town and its inhabitants are a very unique people.

How are they unique? Because some of the people are Slavophones?

Anyway, I was in Florina in 1999 when I was on my honeymoon. My wife's family is from Kastoria (my mother is from Kozani). I enjoyed the three or four days I stayed there.






The people are very friendly.:cheers:

^^ I find the culture and feel of Florina quite different from other Greek towns, perhaps its because the people are Slavic like you mentioned, I dunno. Anyway, I called the the city "special" because its my hometown :cheers: BTW I can't recall a statue like that near the city (in your last pic), in fact I don't think that photo was taken in Florina.

It does have more of a Balkan feel than any other part of Greece I've been to that's for sure, but the inhabitants of Florina are not all Slavophones by any means.

And about their national sentiment......

A village near Florina....

I come from Florina. So your saying I'm Slavic like you?

Your right, you don't know. So next time before you say something stupid, best to think twice and resist the urge to say something stupid.

And btw, he did not say the people are Slavic, so stop trying to twist things. Your propaganda and lies don't work here.
