Paralia Things to Do

  • The main street

    The main street of Paralia is a typical summer resort street – very crowded and places for eat/ drinks and souvenirs all over. But although there were so many people, it’s an ideal place to have a dinner and feel the holiday atmosphere. You can hear a lot of Serbian/ Albanian/ Romanian/ Bulgarian speech, it’s really popular resort for the nearby...

  • St. Paraskevi Church

    You cannot miss the church – it’s in the center of Paralia, actually the center is around the church. It is open until late and you can visit it anytime. The church is white from outside and very colourful from inside, beautiful paintings and icons.

  • The beach of Hotel Mediterranean SPA

    This hotel and the beach are about 5 km north from the center of Paralia so it’s better go there by car, especially in the hot weather. It was interesting that the beach is not crowded at all and the beach traders also don’t reach that place. Even nobody came to ask us for drinks so we stayed there completely for free. The water is amazing clean...

  • Try the Gyros

    Some people say that the Greeks invented it; others say they were Turks, Arabs, etc. Actually there is a difference between every country, for example the bread of the Arabs is really thinner than the Greek one. The main thing is that this “sandwich” is extremely delicious and if you haven’t had the chance to try it, the best moment is in South –...

Paralia Local Customs

  • Small Chaples

    Very praiseworthy, Greek people are very religious. Well, maybe from the orthodox countries only Bulgarians are not so much. Anyway it’s another topic, so they have small chapels or maybe small mini houses where you cannot enter but you can light a candle and pray for a while. I loved that tradition and what is more they suit perfectly to the...

  • Beach Traders

    Oh, those traders! They were all over, all the time, from 8am to 8pm selling doughnuts, sun glasses, dresses, tattoos, jewelries, watches, souvenirs, and so on and so on. On every 20-30 seconds you hear a voice: “Doughnuts, lokumades (same in Greek),krofnice (in Serbian)”. They stop in front of you (especially the ones with the accessories) asking...
