I had the opportunity to visit Chalkida again after 15+years a beautiful city which i would urge you to visit if you ever come to Greece. I had only a few hours to spend so I just took a few photos in the area around the old bridge.

A few words on the City “Chalkida sits on the long narrow island of Evia, one of the largest islands in Greece, but you don’t have to take a boat to get there. Instead there are two bridges. The magnificent new suspension bridge is highly impressive but the real magic, the ‘crazy waters’ of the gulf of Evia, is best seen from the old bridge beyond it. It may seem like a really small tide for those used to the Atlantic but its behavior is seen nowhere else on this planet.

Every six hours it changes direction, for reasons that science is still unable to fully explain. Hundreds of visitors come almost daily from Athens, though probably not only to see this bizarre natural phenomenon. More likely, they are drawn by the warm atmosphere, the cafes and bars, walks by the shore and the delicious seafood. Chalkida is a nearby escape for Athenians and it can be yours, too.”
