Grevena is a beautiful Macedonian town where man coexists harmoniously with nature. The village is surrounded by high mountains, verdant forests, streams, rivers and creeks, impressive stone bridges and old churches. The National Park of Valia Calda, the Vasilitsa Ski Center and mushroom picking make Grevena a pole of attraction for nature and mountain lovers.

Begin your excursion around the city starting from its two main squares. At Eleftherias Square the stone clock tower dominates, this is known as Plateia Rologiou meaning Clock Square and Aimilianou Square is where the city’s heart pulsates.Visit the modern building of the Municipal Central Library located by the river where you will find the region’s historical documents; the old and restored Bousiou’s Mill; the Municipal Museum, which houses elephant bones and wild ox fossils as well as folklore exhibits; the Cathedral, where the Ecclesiastical Museum is housed. At Milia Village, only a short distance from Grevena, you will find the Natural History Museum containing a Gallery of Paleontology where you can see the worldwide largest mastodon tusks found in the area, which are officially entered in the Guinness book of records.

Excursions

If you have time for excursions, then get ready to encounter the nature’s wild beauty. Some rough dirt roads which at times may be covered with snow, and usually muddy, will challenge all of you four-wheel drive aficionados and adrenaline rush seekers. Among the neighboring snow-capped peaks of Mantilitsa, Gerontikou, Straggopetra and Vasilitsa (which is the highest one) you’ll come across some impressive beautiful landscapes. Enjoy the off-road trails that go through some verdant slopes filled with black pines and encounter traditional villages, ideal for relaxation. Don't forget to go by Mastorochoria, a wonderful traditional settlement with stone-built homes and arched bridges.
