We are planning to travel to Kastoria, my parent's birthplace, this summer and would like to find the old Jewish cemetery. Does anyone know where it is and if there are any other remnants of the Jewish/Ladino speaking/Sephardic community that thrived in Kastoria before WWII? Does anyone know how to get this information, who might know?
Thanks in advance for any information you can give us,l Pearl firstname.lastname@example.org

does anybody know the time of the public Transport from kastoria to nestorio? actually we have to get to the rainbowgathering near pefkos. the 22th of july . we arrive at 13.45 at the Thessaloniki Airport. and there are ktel buses at 14.30 o clock and 17.30 , we would propably not get the 14.30 one in time, but the next bus(17.30) would arrive at 20.00 o clock in kastoria. Is there any possibility to get in the evening of the same day still to nestorio or pefkos? or the miravliti(8km from pefkos) parking place of the gathering?
During my recent visit I found them in big disrepair and sorry state. :(
For instance - compare the picture of the Panayia Koumbelidiki as found on the internet (see the outside frescoes!!!) with what I captured few days ago. :((
How is it possible?

My great grandfather was born in Kastoria, and although he emigrated with his family to the U.S. in the early 1900s, I would like to visit this town as part of a trip to Greece this spring. I know that the Sephardic Jewish community in Kastoria was wiped out in the Holocaust, but does anyone know if there are any traces of their history still there? Cemetery, museum, neighborhood, etc? Thanks for your help.
Please advise on long distance bus departure times from Kastoria to Athens during July August. Have found the Athens to Kastoria times on various sites but no mention of the reverse. Please help!
