Ouranoupolis, also known as the City of Heaven, is an ancient Greek town that has grown into a very modern village in Chalcidice.
The town was originally founded in the 4th century and is located on the northwestern coast of the Athos Peninsula in Halkidiki, and is the last settlement before the border that divides the peninsula with the monk republic of Mount Athos.
The picturesque landscape in Ouranoupolis is the combination of wonderful mountains as well as sea side wonders. The contrast of these two opposites provide tourists with a stark, and unforgettable vacation destination unlike any other available in other Greek holiday resorts and cities.
A vacation in Ouranoupolis is a promise of a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable time away from the hustle and bustle of the busy cities. Many tourists have called Ouranoupolis a living portrait because of its stark and wonderful natural beauty, and its close proximity to Mount Athos.
When entering Ouranoupolis, you are immediately welcomed by the Tower of Andronikos, which is one of the major sightseeing touchstones of the town. The exact age of the tower is unknown, as historians know the tower existed in 1344, but many believe that it was built a long time before that. The tower was built by the Monastery Vatopediou to provide them with protection from pirates. In front of the tower there is a port that visitors can travel along by ferry, taking in a full view of the peninsula, as well as Mount Athos. The port is also used by ferries that transport Monks to and from the monasteries.
One of the special treats that awaits those visiting Ouranoupolis is the chance to enjoy some freshly caught fish at one of the many outstanding local restaurants dotted around town. Of course, visitors are not just left to enjoy the fish on their palates. This town is known for its wonderful fishing, as well. So, if a little fishing is up your alley, make sure yo pack your rod, or head to one of the rental booths to make sure you can get your own fishing in.
Ouranoupolis is also perfect for soaking in the sun on the wonderful beaches, as well as swimming in the warm, clear water. Though, you can do much more than just swim in the water, as there are plenty of opportunities to snorkel, dive and even speed around the water on jet skis or speedboats. Truly, there is no end to the opportunities the wonderful waterway in Ouranoupolis can provide you.
Whether you are looking to indulge in a lavish holiday, or have a more economical vacation, you will be able to find the right hotel for you and your travel companions, whether you are on vacation with your family, a group of your closest friends or looking to book a wonderfully romantic vacation with a loved one.
