Evia (Euboia)

Evia (Euboia)

Evia, the second largest island of Greece and the third in the eastern Mediterranean, is located close to Attiki and modern highways make it seem even closer. However, it has a somewhat mainland character, since two bridges - the modern, suspended one and the older, sliding one in Halkida- link it to mainland Greece, called "Sterea Ellada”. In general its outline is a long and narrow island; it is about 180 km long, and varies in breadth from 50 km to 6 km. Its geographic orientation is from northwest to southeast, and it is traversed throughout its length by a mountain range, which forms part of the chain that bounds Thessaly on the east, and is continued south of Euboia in the Cycladic islands of Andros and Tinos. Geography and nature divide the island itself into three distinct parts: the fertile and forested north (which suffered major damage in the August 2021 forest fires); the forested mountainous centre, with agriculture limited to the coastal valleys; and the barren south. Areas of interest are Aedipsos with its thermal baths since the antiquity, Eretria with a rich historical and cultural past, Karystos & Marmari in the south, Limni Evias and of course its largest city Chalkida in the center
