The colorful plain of Veria
Each March, a phenomenon unique to the Greek countryside occurs. The fertile plain of Veria is transformed into a vast “pink sea”, by the thousands of blooming peach trees. The variety of fruit trees, the richness of the plain, offers with its flowering a pink, white and red mosaic of exceptional beauty. Peaches, cherries, apricots, kiwis and other high quality fruits before delivering their rich fruit to the local community deify the senses of the visitor. It is no coincidence that Herodotus mentions that in these places were the famous “Gardens of Midas”. The villages of the plain of Veria are Patrida, Agios Georgios, Agia Marina, Makrochori, Diavatos, Kouloura, Nea Lykogianni, Palia Lykogianni, Nea Nikomidia, Agia Barbara, Ammos, Mesi, Lazochori, Tagarochori, Vergina, Palatitsia and Metoci.
