The door of Evia   

  Touristic Infrastructure - Events


The area which is surrounding the capital of Evia, is comprised of the municipalities of Chalkida, N. Artaki, Lilantion, Avlida and Anthidona. The latest two, are not located on the island of Evia, but in the other side of Euripus, that of Sterea Ellada.

The region of central Evia is characte-rized by the brilliant historical presence of two of the most important cities of ancient Greece. Chalkida and Eretria, long before the appearance of Athens, have established the world-wide mark of the Greek culture. Next to these important ancient cities “PetriesaAvlida, Anthidona and other smaller cities, came to their peak. Extremely important are also the samples of even more ancient civilizations that have been revealed in the sites of N. Artaki and Vasiliko.

The already celebrated cultural and social identity of the region of central Evia, took new form since the arrival of the Greek refugees of Asia Minor, in 1925. N. Artaki and N. Lampsakos are the names of the homonymous cities in Marmaras, from where the new people of Evia came from.

The capital of Evia, astonishingly beautiful indeed, instantly wins over anyone who crosses the old bridge of Euripus and Evia. A city, with a history and culture which is lost in the depths of the ages. By the many colonies of Chalkida, (Chalkidiki. S. Italy, Ionian coastland etc), civilization was passed to the world through written speech. The well-known Chalkidiko or Kimaiko alphabet (ancestor of the Latin alphabet) was the first attempt of man to immortalize his experiences and history.

For the visitor of modern Chalkida, apart from the natural beauties of the city, it worths taking time in tasting the history of Evia, by admiring the monuments.
