Agios Prodromos is a small village in Chalkidiki, located 50 km from the city of Thessaloniki and just 14 from Polygyros. It is situated at the foothills of Mount Holomontas and it consists an ideal stop for the visitors of Mount Athos and Halkidiki in general.
It has about 450 residents and is primarily famous for its souvlaki. Its recognition is not limited to Greece. In fact, some years ago, the souvlaki of Agios Prodromos was awarded by the Government of New Zealand!
For this village, as residents say, the art of souvlaki is transferred unspoiled from generation to generation. The components of this great worldwide success and the difference between others are a huge secret. However, we know that the right combination of good, local meat (the locals which aren't involved with souvlaki and tourism are farmers), suitable proportions of spices and a special way of cooking makes it so unique.
Among others, Agios Prodromos has a small picturesque square, kindergarten, post office, police station and football club, which competes in the amateur category B of Halkidiki championship. If you find yourself in the picturesque village to taste souvlaki, don't forget to try traditional sweets, bread and honey. Moreover, you will have the opportunity to admire the river Resetnikioti (Olynthio) which crosses the village and it's surrounded by lush vegetation, and also to visit the small post-Byzantine chapel of the Saint Prodromos which actually gave its name to the village.
