    The tall Bridge

    by Aggeliki Written Aug 28, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Chalkida is built on two shores, Evia island and Viotia (prefecture on the mainland). So Evia is connected with Viotia by the wire suspension bridge (known as tall or new). It was completed in 1993 south of the city, to avoid traffic congestion and to save travel time.

    The ottoman mosque

    by AndyRG Updated Jun 4, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Romans, Byzantines, Turks have left their signs in Halkida too... This mosque was made in the 17th century.
    You can also visit the castle Karababa (1686) -where the grave of Greek poet Giannis Skaribas exists (the view is very nice)- or the ancient aqueduct.

    The old bridge

    by AndyRG Updated Dec 24, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: It joins Euboea to Sterea, the continental land in central Greece. It was first made in 540 (by wood) and renovated in 1858, 1894, 1962. It is the best point to observe the ebb and flow of the water, next to Euripus river.
    Since 1992, a modern bridge is used by cars and makes the trip 15' shorter.

    Budapest?

    by AndyRG Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Halkida looks like... Budapest, as it has been built between the two sides of Euripus sound, which divides the city in 2 parts. Except walking in these both sides (the best way to discover any city), you can visit the Archaeological Museum.

    Favorite thing: Well as I said it isn't excactly Chalkis the place I have in mind.To tell you the truth what I love more about the Evia island is a single beach called Kanatadika, located at the northest end of the island.It is always clean, never has too many people, and you can find only three typical greek taverns, which operate also as cafes.It is wonderful to have your coffee in one of these as they are too close to the sea, almost in it.

    Fondest memory: When I am not in Evia I miss terribly my home town Istiea and it's surroundings.North Evia has wonderful places to visit.Pefki is full of pine trees, which they reach the shore, friendly bars and taverns,water games e.t.c.Oreoi and Baths of Aidipsos are more glamorous with wonderful sceneries also.I miss them all, I miss the air there, I miss the people and the sea.

    Where to swim...

    by AndyRG Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Of course, don't swim at the port or the modern marine... You can do it at many nice beaches like Asteria (near the centre), Kourendi, Souvala, Liani Ammos, Panagitsa...
