Tolo, a charming seaside resort

Tolo, a charming seaside resort

The majestic Tolo is one of the most cosmopolitan parts of Greece and is one of the major tourist resorts. It is an auxiliary port of Nafplion - from Byzantine times already - that followed the fate of passing through the hands of the Franks, Venetians and Ottomans. The well-protected bay of the safe harbor will be the starting point of the campaign of the chief of coalition forces - the Venetians, Germans and Poles - Vice Admiral Morosini to capture the occupied by Turkish Nafplio. After the success of the campaign and by 1718 the region fell back into the hands of the Turks, Tolo will be used as the substation of the Venetian fleet.With the liberation from the Turks, and resolution of the Governor Kapodistrias, sections of land in the bay of Tolo will be allocated to Cretan fighters who were forced to leave their island and take refuge in Free Greece. The natural beauty of the bay and the peace which fills the visitor, the beautiful surrounding landscape, will transform the once fishing village into a modern tourist resort with hotels around forty total capacity of 7000 beds! Situated almost on the beach, Tolo, with the traditional tavernas and international restaurants, small bars and big clubs, comfortable hotels and shady campings, and with a highly developed market, is offered for both family vacations and fun for young because here you will find one of the most well-organized water sports beaches. For a romantic stroll through the adjacent Kastraki is necessary, the village that inspired George Seferis with the ruins of ancient Assini found by Swedish archaeologists excavations, while the environmentalists will find their paradise on the island Psili with countless Young Seagulls.

Edessa, the City of Falls

Edessa, the City of Falls

Edessa 3000 years of history History & Culture. In 814 B.C Heraclides KARANOS makes Edessa the capital city of the first kingdom of the Macedonians and the fate of the city was identified with the history of Macedonia. Ancient, byzantine but also industrial finds testify the towns' history. Romans, Slavs, as well as Ottomans, pass from its history. On 18th October 1912, the town was liberated and incorporated to the Hellenic state as capital city of the Prefecture of Pella. In 1923 many Asian refugees came to live in Edessa while in the 50 - 60, the "White Coal" (hydro energy), which for centuries had moved mills, workshops, industries and factories, becomes useless. This was the end of the industrial growth of the town.Capital of the prefecture with 18.832 inhabitants. Built on the foot of Vermio mountain, it has beautiful view on the plain, much green, gardens full of flowers and abundant waters. It is one of the most beautiful cities of Macedonia. In 1977, the excavations in Vergina proved that this city has no relationship with the city of Aeges, the ancient macedonian capital, as it was believed in older times. Edessa, as the excavations at Logos proved, was a significant city already since the Hellenistic Times, although its greatest bloom was noticed in the Roman and the Paleochristian Years, fact that is probably related to the existance of Egnantia Street as well as the decline of Pella. The city, which in the 7th century became bishop`s base, was significant even in the Byzantine Times. In the years of the wars of Basil the second (976-1025) against Samuel, the castle of Edessa was captured twice by the Bulgarians, yet it was taken back by the Byzantines in 1018. The sources of that age frequently mention the city by the name Vodena which results from the Slavic word "voda" which means water. In the 14th century, the castle of Vodena was under the domination of the Serbs of Dousan, till, after a siege of eight months, it was underhandedly captured by the Turks. In the years of the Turks' domination, christianity was intense in the city, while in the middle of the 18th century a hellenistic school was founded, where Parasceuas Amfilochios teached, who came from the city of Giannena. In 1782, "Hellenomuseum" and the "Common School", which was a public school, were founded, while the local people were offering money for their needs. In the end of the 18th century, when the city noticed great bloom and the Greeks were of the population, Edessa came to the authority of Ali Pasha. It was liberated with the rest Macedonia in 1912.

In Neochori, it worths visiting the botanical garden that includes plants that make up the ecosystem of the region. The last stop on your journey is the dam you will find a few kilometers from Neochori and after Belokomiti. If you visit the lake be sure to see up close the dam. You will admire the beauty of the landscape and, if you want, you can complete the cycle route to the villages Moucha, Kastania, Lampero, St. Athanasius and Moschato.
