Athens, the capital of Greece, is situated about 230 miles (370 kilometers) southeast of Loutraki.
Loutraki isn't the only place in Greek Mainland worth exploring; visitors with plenty of time can also hit the road and discover the magic of the nearby countryside, cities and cultural attractions. You'll also find Naousa, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the north, and Giannitsa 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the northwest.
When you are ready to venture further afield visit the nearest regional area. Kastoria lays 45 miles (72 kilometers) away and features attractions such as Dragon's Lair, Folklore Museum of Kastoria and Neolithic Lakeside Settlement. Byzantine Museum of Kastoria and Petrified Forest Museum are also good spots for a visit before heading back to Loutraki.
Uncover the region's rich cultural makeup at Greek Mainland's wonderful history museums, theaters and art museums. Spirituality is a pivotal aspect of every region's DNA, so set aside some time to visit the area's many monasteries and other religious sites.
If you are in the area during winter, try out some of the local wintersports like skiing and snowboarding. These activities are on offer in the region. Breathe in and feel your worries drift away as you enjoy some of the area's gentler pursuits such as beach combing and cycling.
At the end of your time in this special place, say farewell the way they do in Greek, with a heartfelt "Yiá sou."
