The village of Nea Moudania is a settlement on the peninsula of Chalkidiki, built in 1922. The first inhabitants of this settlement were refugees from Asia Minor, forced to leave their homes by the decision of The Treaty of Lausanne, which stated new borders for Turkey. In the history of ancient Greece, these places are mentioned in connection with the city-state Spartalos, which existed nearby in the 5th c. B.C.
Today it is a developed resort with a population of about 6000 people, hotels, apartments, shops, taverns and a beautiful beach. It is worth noting that here vacationers can find a bank and a post office. The village occupies an important strategic place in the transport connection on the peninsula of Halkidiki, since from here you can get to the city of Thessaloniki, and to all the other villages on the peninsula of Kassandra. Local buses, though, unfortunately, run quite seldom and slowly.
The distance from the airport to Nea Moudania is only 35 km. The first thing that travelers see coming here is a wonderful temple towering above the village. It is not by chance that it bears the name of Virgin Mary of Vertex or (Panagia Corifini). The temple was built by local residents to preserve the icon of the same name, brought by them from Asia Minor.
Among other attractions one may be interested to visit the Museum of piscatorial crafts & tools of Nea Moudania. The exposition of the museum is divided into three main themes: the history of fishing with exhibits telling about the life of local fishermen, the treasures of the underwater world and the marine life.
