Lake Voulismeni - Agios Nikolaos

Lake Voulismeni is a small but charming lake, located in the center of the beautiful town of Agios Nikolaos. In 1867 it was connected to the sea by a canal, which opened to the port. Panoramic views of this magnificent lake are offered by the park located above it. Every year at midnight on Easter, the majority of the city's population gathers around the lake to celebrate the Resurrection with fireworks. Local urban legend states that the lake has no bottom because of the depth which is unusual for the area. Also, cliff divers from all over the world are gathered here every summer for the famous cliff diving contest.
