The exquisite protagonist of North Greece has an unbeatable charm and innumerable reasons to visit and discover. Roman, byzantine, ottoman and other modern monuments, markets full of pictures and smells such as Modiano and Louloudadika, avenues that intensely remind of European metropolis and, of course, a walk by the sea with Thermaikos view that no one is bored to have. The beautiful Ano Poli with its traditional colors, Kalamaria with its own rhythms and codes, the cultural center of Lazaristes monastery, the seaside cafe’s, the perfect flavors, but also the International Festival of Thessaloniki, are parts of a fascinating puzzle that never ends.
A short distance from Thessaloniki, towards the highway Thessaloniki – Kavala, the sign with the word Oraiokastro out of the busy highway. Following the road to our left, we head to the City Oreokastro.
At a short distance from Thessaloniki, with direction to the ring road of Thessaloniki- Kavala , the signal with the index ‘Oreokastro’ take us away from the loud region. Following the road on the left side, we are driving to the municipality of Oreokastro. Our trip begins to be different. The forest of cars is replaced by the forest that the trees shape at a small extent of 5.000 acres. The more we are going up the hill, the more we feel the freshness of the mountain. Oreokastro, a place with unique natural beauty and endowed with excellent climate, attracts every year, except for visitors, millions of citizens for permanent stay.
