Sitaria (Greek: Σιταριά, Bulgarian: Ресен or Росна, Resen or Rosna) is a village in the Florina regional unit, Greece.

History[edit]

According the Austrian Johann Georg von Hahn in 1861 Rosen (or Rastna at the time) was inhabited by Bulgarians.[2] This was confirmed by ethnographer Brancoff who noted the village had 45 households and a population of 110 male Bulgarians in 1873.[3] It was officially renamed to Sitaria in 1926.[4]
