The magnificent Evia crowns the necklace of the Greek archipelago of Northern Sporades and is one of the most popular tourist centers of the planet. People come here not only to relax and enjoy the luxurious sea views and ancient ruins, but also to see the real natural wonder – «standing waves» of the Euripus Strait. The picturesque island is rich with lush flora, dense forests, fructuous orchards, vineyards and olive groves. The famous hot springs of Evia are widely known abroad. Maria Callas, Omar Sharif, Greta Garbo and many other celebrities have visited this place to restore their health. The modern, comfortable resort hotels of the island operate all year round, and are located, mainly, in the south, in the resorts of Karystos and Eretria. These places also attract the newlyweds, who have organized their wedding ceremony in the island. The unique beauty and picturesqueness of landscapes are literally designed by the gods for a divine wedding photo session. According to an ancient legend, the island was created by the god Poseidon, by splitting it from the mainland in the place where the modern Euboea is connected by two bridges with the rest of Greece.
