Agios Nikolaos Halkidiki

Sithonia Halkidiki Settlement

Typical village of the mountainous Halkidiki that preserves its traditional atmosphere but also seeks progress through tourism and hospitality.

Agios Nikolaos is located 117 kilometers away from Thessaloniki, at the beginning of the Sithonia peninsula. It is a beautiful village, with narrow streets and traditional houses dating from the 19th century.

Close to the contemporary village, relics of a pre-historic inhabited area were found, suggesting the presence of a settlement named "Siggos" during antiquity.

The current village was formed after two older settlements were united. Those were the village of Agios Georgios, where people from Halkidiki were living and the village of Agios Nikolas, which was hosting refugees from the region of Mani who found shelter.

The village has 2.000 inhabitants and offers a wide range of services to its people. Locals and visitors are used to gathering at the central square, where there are many restaurants and a fountain. The biggest local celebration takes place during St Paraskevi's name day who is the patron of the village. After the church, the guests are treated with "biskotoloukoumo", which is a biscuit with Turkish delight, while during the evening follows a large feast with live music.
