    Volos is in the center of Greece, in Thessaly region. The city lies on the shore of the Pagasetic Gulf, at the foot of Mount Pilio. According to Greek mythology, it was once the land of centaurs.

    History of Volos

    Stone age settlers established the settlement. You can still see the ruins of Dimini that lie in Volos’ vicinity. The modern city formed by merging the antique Demetrias, Pagasae, and Iolcos. Demetrias got its name after the establisher of the Macedonian king, Demetrius Poliorcetes. According to Greek legends, Iolcos was the homeland of the mythological hero Jason. Until the Byzantine times, Volos had the name Golcos, later Golos. It belonged to the Ottoman Empire, then Bulgaria, thus, many cultures left their signs on the region, which made local traditions colourful, as well as architecture.

    Weather on Volos

    The Greek coast has a Mediterranean climate. The air of the country is very clean and dry from spring to early autumn. There’s a lot of sunshine, while the amount of rain usually decreases from the west to the east. In summer, we almost never see any clouds in the sky. Rain is practically an unknown guest in the summer months. The sea can heat up to 23-25 °C from June to August. Even in October, it’s still 23 °C. The area of Greece is constantly windy, these winds, however, are always changing. The wind that dominates summer months is called Meltemi. From June, it blows from the northwest and the northeast. It reaches its full strength, from 5 to 8 on the Beaufort scale, in July and August.

    The sea-wind comes in late September or early October, which blows from the southeast and the southwest. It’s a specifically southern wind, that dominates mostly in spring and fall with a strength of 2 to 4. Due to Greece’s typical winds, its most rewarding to plan a sailing route from the south to the north in spring and autumn, and from the north to the south in summer. The waving is more preferable compared to the Croatian archipelago since there’s a greater distance between the Greek islands. The current flows counterclockwise in the Eastern Mediterranean Basin, and northward along the Turkish coast. The water flows southward on the Eastern Greek coasts, but from the west side of Peloponnese Peninsula northern current dominates.
