Kalambaka: trending travel destination in 2023

·

Kalambaka, a small Greek town in the heart of Greece, has been listed in the American newspaper, Stars and Stripes as one of the most trending travel destinations in 2023.

According to Stars and Stripes research on the travel press, Kalambaka earned a spot as a trendy destination because of its renowned beautiful monasteries and natural landscape.

“The area’s biggest draw by far, however, are the monasteries built atop the soaring rock formations,” Stars and Stripes said.

The paper is referring to the Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron, which is one of the six active monasteries in Greece.

The Holy Monastery of Great Meteoron.

Built with stunning 16th century frescoes, ‘Megalo Meteoron’ means “suspended in the air” and was founded by Saint Athanasios the Meteorite in the 14th century.

Kalambaka was praised as being a geological wonder, and showing evidence of human existence dating back 130,000 years in their 1000 foot high rock caves.

The newspaper additionally commented on the town of Kalambaka, saying the dozens of bars, taverns and restaurants cater to large crowds of tourists – often with the delicacy of meat-based dishes.
