History of Chalkidiki
Halkidiki isn’t just a peninsula filled with majestic, breathtaking beaches and wild nature. Three thousand years of Ancient Greek, Byzantine & even Roman civilizations compose a unique cultural puzzle, matching the area’s aesthetics.
Ancient Greeks were inspired by its unparalleled beauty, including Halkidiki in many myths. Sithon, son of Poseidon, god of the sea, gave his name to Sithonia. It can also be considered as the place of Giants; Greeks believed that Giant Olympus formed Mount Athos by throwing a rock, and that Giant Enceladus was buried in Kassandra.
Many fought for domination over this land; according to Thucydides ‘Histories’, Athenians and Spartans both captured the city of Potidaea, grave enemies in the Peloponnesian War. Phillip II conquered and destroyed the city in 354 BC, putting a stop on its existence for centuries to come.
Romans took after what Greek Macedonians destroyed, naming the area as Kassandria and recreating it an important outpost, almost as big as Thessaloniki.
After the 6th AD, Byzantines, and for a short period of time, Venetians claimed the peninsula as their own, constantly upgrading its presence, until Ottomans arrived at 1430. They put an end to its importance for centuries to come, until Kassandria was finally liberated from Greece back in October 1912.
Its current form was finalized by Asia Minor Greeks, who finally inhabited Halkidiki after 1923.
All these groups of people created an one of a kind mosaic of cultures that can be seen all over the peninsula.
