Kalohori-Thessaloniki a natural canvas

The lagoon of Kalochori constitutes the northern gate of the National Park, lying at a mere 8 km. from the city of Thessaloniki. This coastal wetland is of special interest since despite being at the edge of a large urban center with all the pressures that brings, it constitutes one of the most important areas of the National Park, hosting great numbers of birds and other organisms throughout the year.

The case of the lagoon of Kalochori is unique in Greece, as it constitutes a ‘young’ wetland, created gradually from the mid-60’s, as the result of the subsidence of the earth due to the excessive pumping of water from underground aquifers, combined with the loose composition of the soil.
