An enchanting city spread along the banks of Pamvotida Lake. It is full of castles, monuments, traditional houses, and studios of silversmiths, goldsmiths and skilled woodcarvers. It has a strong artistic and spiritual character and houses an important university. It also has a booming nightlife, because of the thousands of university students. In the middle of Pamvotida lake, there is a small islet with few inhabitants that looks like something out of a painting. The city is full of trees and flowers. And the view from the nearby Mitsikeli Mountain is just breathtaking.
