by Kuznetsov_Sergey

Favorite thing: Aetolia-Acarnania also Etoloakarnania is one of the 51 prefectures of Greece and one of the 14th where I have been. I came there on my way from Rhio (Achaia) to Delphi (Fokida). My VT-page on Prefecture of Etoloakarnania. You may see my way across Etoloakarnania on the map.

It is located in the western part of Greece. The prefecture is a combination of the regions Aetolia and Acarnania and its capital for historical reasons is Mesolongi. The area is now connected with the Peloponnese peninsula via the spectacular Rio-Antirio Bridge and the surrounding prefectures take in Arta in Epirus a narrow length bordering Karditsa of Thessaly, Eurytania to the northeast and Phocis to the east. This is the largest prefecture in Greece.

Nafpaktia is one of the most popular mountainous areas in Etoloakarnania.
Navpaktos (in Italian, Spanish and Portuguese: Lepanto) situated on a bay on the north side of the straits of Lepanto. It?s built amphitheatrically on the side of a hill, which lies on the sea opposite to Peloponnese between Delphi and Messologi.
