Greece City: Kalamata
Kalamata (Kalamata) – the largest city in the southern part of Peloponnese, stretching from the sea coast deep into the mainland by 4 km.
This is a very lively and prosperous shopping center, even some "Capitality", Especially noticeable compared to the quiet provincial life of the rest of the region. In addition, this is one of the first Greek cities who have gained independence in 1821, which Kalamatians are very proud. But in 1986, a powerful earthquake has strongly destroyed the city, and now there are few historical monuments here.
The most interesting objects are small Castle Castle (open from Monday to Friday from 8.00 to 14.00, Saturday and Sunday – from 9.00 to 15.00, input is free), amphitheater His walls are excellent Archaeological Museum Benikion (open from Thursday to Saturday from 8.30 to 14.00, on Sunday – from 8.30 to 15.00; 2 euros), Historical Museum and Museum of Folklore (open from Thursday to Saturday from 9.00 to 13.00, on Sunday – from 10.00 to 13.00; 2 euros) Behind the Church of Ayos-Joanis.

The city beach lies in Almiron Bay, ten minutes by bus south from the center. The sand-and-pebble shore is pretty good and besides, in the East rests in the Verga Entertainment Zone (Verga), and therefore almost always crowded.
