A small village, Aghios Prodromos, located in northern Greece is known all over the globe, for its amazing delicacy- its souvlaki!
Some years ago, the government of New Zealand awarded the Greek village for its delicious souvlaki, made from high-quality pork. About half of the 500 residents of Aghios Prodromos in Halkidiki earn their living from souvlaki-related jobs, selling the Greek sandwich to visitors and locals, or producing vegetables necessary for making it. As a result, they are either farmers or taverna-owners, butchers, bakers or greengrocers who do their best to sell what they claim is the best souvlaki.
Aghios Prodromos situated 31 miles from Thessaloniki and 8.6 miles from Halkidiki, is an ideal destination for travelers of the broader area who like to taste traditional Greek pork souvlaki as well as for many Bulgarian tourists who often head to the village in order to have a cheap meal at the local taverns. The scenic village is surrounded by a river, which offers refreshing moments where you can enjoy yourself at the local panigyri with dances and songs until the early morning hours.
