  • Amphipolis recently discovered archeological site, massive tomb currently under investigation.
  • Chalkidiki
  • Olympos National Park
  • Pella (sometimes called Bounomos) Capital of the antic kingdom of Macedonia. Archeological site and museum.


If you are looking for remaining of the ancient kingdom of Macedonia, this is definitely the right place. The capital of the kingdom, Pella (birthplace of Alexander the Great) is located in this region, 40km north-west to Thessaloniki. The neighbor country of Macedonia falsely claims this legacy but has very little to do with Alexander.


Greek is the official language of Greece and thus, the vast majority of the inhabitants of Macedonia speak it as their native language. English is spoken by many people, usually under the age of 40, and mostly in big cities like Thessaloniki or in tourist resorts, like Chalkidiki.
