Photographer's Note

There are many theories regarding the name Kastoria (in Greek: Καστοριά. It has been claimed that the name derives from the Greek word κάστορας/kαstoras (beaver), who may have lived in the nearby lake (Lake Orestiada). Other theories propose that the name derives from the Greek word κάστρο/kαstro (castle; from the Latin word castrum) or from the mythical hero Κάστωρ/Kαstor, who may have been honoured in the area. The name for the city in Slavic is Kostur/Костур (from kost, 'bone'), the Aromanian name is Kastoria and the Turkish name is Kesriye.
