​Petralona Cave or "Red Stones"

27 ΜΑΡΤΙΟΥ 2019
The Petralona cave,  also Cave of the Red Stone, a Karst formation – is located at 300 m above sea-level on the western foot of Mount Katsika, about 1 km east of the eponymous village, about 35 km south-east of Thessaloniki city on the Chalkidiki peninsula, Greece.

Waterfalls of Edessa - “Loutra Pozar”

27 ΜΑΡΤΙΟΥ 2019
Waterfalls are considered to be one of the most impressive nature phenomena. The place where you can admire the sublime in Greece is undoubtedly the city of Edessa. The capital of Pella - one of the most beautiful settlements in Macedonia - has connected its name with its waterfalls, the top attraction of the city. Almost every corner of Edessa you will cross channels over small bridges. Almost everywhere, the sound of water will accompany you as a permanent melodic background. Sometimes calm and melancholy, sometimes rushing and unstoppable. The natural creator is the river Edessaus, whose waters cross the city before it rains in the waterfalls. [...]
