Macedonia or Makedonia, is the central Area of northern Greece. It is most famously associated with the kings Philip and his son Alexander the Great, who made Makedonia the most powerful empire in ancient times, stretching its reach all the way into Asia and spreading the Greek culture and language to the peoples of that area.
The birthplace also of Aristotle, the great philosopher who set the foundations of logic, making our world rational and introducing many of the western ideas we now cherish. He studied the nature of the world and also made major advances in the fields of physics, meteorology, natural history & biology, as well as chemistry.
Now the Makedonia is a vibrant and distinct part of Greece. With its capital, the cosmopolitan Thessaloniki, having the lead, it includes many diverse, both culturally and geographically areas and towns: Serres, Drama, Kavala, Katerini, Halkidiki (and Mount Athos) Kilkis, Edessa, Veroia, Kozani, Kastoria, Grevena and Florina.
Largely undiscovered by tourists, it has an amazing number of attractions to offer and interests to pursue: Stunning nature (rivers, lakes, gorges, ski resorts and mountains such as Olympus), numerous significant archaeological sites like Vergina, Pella and Philippi, Byzantine relics and churches everywhere, crystal clear sandy beaches in Halkidiki, gorgeous mountain villages with some beautiful guesthouses. For those males (only!) who quest spirituality or simply spectacular natural beauty, Mount Athos with its ancient monasteries is worth a visit.
