Agios Nikolaos

It is a modern cosmopolitan city, built at Mirabellos bay. It took its name from a church named this way (8th century AD), which is located in the south side of the current port.In ancient times Agios Nikolaos was called “Lato to Kamara”, a region of “Lato of Etera”.The latter is an area near Kritsa.Near to the small haven there is a lake which is estimated 64 meters deep, known as “Bulismeni “. This lake was presumably created from the volcano’s sedimentation.The lake combined with the sea with a small canal which was created in 1870.Agios Nikolaos lately has turned into an attractive destination for the summer due to the variety of hotels, restaurants, shops and an well-organized marine.The city is famous for its museums as it has Archaeological, Folklore and National History Museum.
