Imathia, with the former capital of the Kingdom of Macedonia, Vergina
Imathia is geographically located in the Greek Central Macedonia. Already during the prehistoric era lived people in the area and in ancient times, the region was at the center of Macedonian high culture.
To this day, the district of Imathia is inextricably linked with the name of "Alexander the Great". Despite its approx. 140,000 inhabitants, Imathia could still be classified as contemplative today.
Of course there are also clubs and bars, as well as shopping, which provide for pleasure, but also the many small places offer culture-interested visitors a lot of variety, because everywhere one meets here on Greek history:
