Chalkida is the capital of the prefecture of Evia. Its population is about 55264 inhabitants. In Chalkida you can see the strong tide phenomenon of Euripus Strait, also known as tide of Euripus. According to this phenomenon, the waters are constantly changing direction from North to South. This transaction happens 4 times per day. There are days that the waters change direction 14 times in one day!

It is said that the "crazy water" affects the character of the inhabitants with their willingness to change so often, as the tide of the waters. However, the port is the perfect place to have a cup of coffee.
