ΑΡΙΔΑΙΑ, Greece – Loutra Pozar is a world famous thermal spa which receives more than one million visitors every year, the mayor of Almopia, northern Greece, Dimitris Binos, said in an interview with the Athens Macedonian News Agency’s radio station Praktoreio 104.9 FM.
Vogue magazine in a recent article recommended Pozar as an alternative Greek destination.
“A far cry from the traffic of Athens and the high season island tourism, Northern Greece is noteworthy year-round for its diverse landscapes, ancient history, and innumerable activities both hedonistic and adventurous.
The continuous flux of immigrants from Eastern Europe and the Middle East into the towns and villages has resulted in a melting pot of culture and cuisines, while nature provides its own spectacle from East to West,” Vogue said and suggested three destinations, including Loutra Pozar.
“Loutra Pozar are among the 28 thermal springs belonging to the European network of historic spa resorts in Europe, with excellent natural beauty, offering the visitor peace and relaxation all year round,” Binos noted.
The European network of thermal spas is expected to hold its meeting in Almopia, in May 2019.
Almopia, or Enotia, also known in the Middle Ages as Moglena, is a municipality and a former province of the Pella regional unit in Macedonia, Greece. The seat of the municipality is the town Aridaia.
