Abstract: We present a statistical study on parsec scale properties of a sample of Brigthest Cluster Galaxies (BCGs) in Abell Clusters. These data show a possible difference between BCGs in cool core clusters (two-sided parsec scale jets) and in non cool core clusters (one-sided parsec scale jet). We suggest that the two-sided morphology in cool core clusters could be due to the presence of mildly relativistic jets slowed down already at mas scale as consequence of the jet interaction with a dense surrounding medium.
