Get to know the city better by taking romantic strolls along the river Grevenitis. Wander around Grevená's main squares: Eleftherias where you can admire the clock tower, the landmark of the city, and Aimilianoú, where you will feel the pulse of the city’s nightlife! Visit the Central Public Library to find historical documents on Grevená; the Boússios Mill, an exceptionally restored 19th century flour mill; the Municipal Museum which houses elephant and wild ox fossils, as well as folklore exhibits, and the Metropolitan church which hosts the ecclesiastic museum. 

Welcome the opportunity to visit the nearby village Miliá. The Natural History Museum there boasts a rare palaeontology collection which actually shows the largest mastodon tusks in the world, officially entered in the Guinness book of records

Return to Grevená in August to attend the "Pan-Hellenic Mushroom Feast" organised by the “Mushroom Friends of Western Macedonia” on the banks of Venétikos river. A perfect occasion to visit the city would also be during the traditional carnival celebrations, the so-called “Anakatosária”, that take place every February. Your trip to Grevená concludes with a half-day excursion to Mastorohória, a beautiful complex of 25 outstanding stone villages nestled comfortably among a dense oak-tree forest.
