Kouri forest near Almyros

The Kouri forest is an important part of Almyros with its huge oak trees. It is a unique European forest in a plain about 1 km northwest of Almyros and 500 meters from Efxinoupoli. The forest is divided into two parts. The first part hosts a Municipal Pavilion, a church, hunter’s kiosk, playground and sport facilities. The second part across 700 square kilometres features a walkable forest, three artificial lakes, a Folklore Museum and wild animals roaming free such as wild sheep, deer, ducks and other birds. In 1993 a train around the lakes was revitalized and covers a distance of 660 meters. The church of Agios Nikolaos from 1902 is another interesting site worth a visit.
