Chalkis Travel Guide: 35 reviews and 84 photos

Chalkis (Halkida) is the capital of the prefecture of Euboea.
Euboea is a large island in the centre of Greece and Halkida is joined to the continental land by 2 bridges.

The city is 80 km north of Athens (55.000 inhabitants). Euripus sound is famous for the ebb and the flow which are interchanged all the time there.
Halkida is a lovable destination for Athenians, as it is near Athens and the city is interesting. It is the homeland of famous Greeks like Skaribas (poet), Skalkotas (composer), Makris (actor), Mitaras (painter)...
