Nea Moudania

Nea Moudania - Culture Flavours

 

It is the commercial, economic, cultural, educational, and not only centre of Halkidiki and the largest city of the prefecture with about 10,000 residents. Nea Moudania was created in 1922 by refugees from Moudanya in Marmara (“Kianou” bay as they used to call it) in Asia Minor. They settled in the region of “Kargi-limani”- as the area was called - which was very similar to that of their unforgettable homeland, while the Byzantine name of the area was “Limenas Liontaria”. Today, at the waterfront of Nea Moudania visitors can enjoy coffee in modern cafes, drink ouzo accompanied by delicious dishes in taverns, overlooking the Thermaikos Gulf and Mount Olympus, living their dreams. The hotel infrastructure, the rich cultural programme hosted throughout the summer - including the famous “Festival of the Sea” - the very interesting folklore museum and of course the museum of fishing vessels and gear, featuring the history of the place, are summer holiday incentives that promise the ultimate rest, relaxation and fun.
