Master the pulse of the city

Chalkida stands out for its unique natural beauties, its glorious history and its friendly people. It is only 75 km away from Athens and the capital of Evia island.

Chalkida is the cross-road between Evia and mainland Greece. In the Euripus Strait, the Old Bridge brings together two different worlds, giving Chalkida an extraordinary vibe. This is a city of playful contradictions and endless choice. The scenery changes as each season succeeds the other, creating a colourful canvas of experiences.

The continuous turn of the water currents in the Euripus Strait, brings a unique pulse to the everyday life of the city that carries away each visitor.

Chalkida Today

The Euripus Strait and the Old Bridge may be Chalkida’s primary points of reference; still the city is full of historic monuments and buildings that reveal its exciting history dating from the ancient years until now.
