“THE ALTERNATIVE DESTINATION”
The capital of Halkidiki is “embraced” by Mountain Holomontas. Polygyros is a modern city, yet flirting with tradition. One walk in its historic web is enough, with its dozens of restored houses and stone-paved streets charming the visitors! The Museum of Halkidiki, the Folklore Museum of Polygyros, the Municipal Theatre, home to many events and happenings, the Summer Festival of Polygyros in the city’s open-air theatre are places where the visitor comes to contact with history, tradition and art. Polygyros is also ideal for mountain getaways while for… altitude lovers a visit to the chapel of Ai Lias will fill you with awe, as the view of the whole of South Halkidiki from up there will surely “leave you breathless”!
