Βέροια | Veria

Veria (officially transliterated as Veroia, Greek Βέροια or Βέρροια - Véria) is a city in Greece. It is a commercial center of Greek Macedonia, the capital of the prefecture of Imathia, the province of Imathia and the seat of a bishop of the Greek Orthodox Church. Veria is on the site of the ancient city of Beroea (called Berea in some translations of the Bible), which was prominent from the 4th century BC and part of the Kingdom of Macedon. Part of Rome from 168 BC, both Paul and Silas preached there in AD 54 or 55 (see Bereans). Diocletian made the large and populous city one of two capitals of the Roman Province of Macedonia, and it was one of the earliest cities to become the seat of a bishop.

Bravo LEAFS! There are so many undiscovered cities in Macedonia.
The photo with the square and the night lights is spectacular.

Thanks my friend! I really enjoyed Veria when I was there a few years ago. I truly enjoy all of Greece's northern towns and cities.

Looks like a city bustling with activity this one. I really wonder, especially now that many of the perceived amenities and luxuries of big metropolitan centres, i.e. malls, hypermarkets, highways etc exist also in the Greek countryside, why anybody would choose to move to Athens or Thessaloniki.

I think that we need to help this part of Greece to become as developed as it can be. It deserves it.

And some airphotos:





It seems there is a river crossing the city and creating a lush green area. Does Veria take advantage of this somehow?

I agree 100% with Southern.

Absolutely stunning photos. You have shown us the reality of the place and that is what makes it beautiful in my eyes.
