The Kilkis prefecture is located in Central Makedonia , between the prefectures of Pella, Thessaloniki and Serres. A large part of Kilkis lies in the verdant valley of Axios River, the ancient Amfaxitida. Its western and northern regions, which include the sublime and forested mountains of Paiko and Belles, while Krousia on its northeast side and the Doirani Lake in the northwest, constitute a natural border as well as a splendid aquatic habitat with rare bird and plant species.

The region throughout appears to have been an area of human activity since the Copper and Iron Ages. Prehistoric settlements and interspersed tombs have provided significant findings dating back to the 2nd millennium BC.

On the west lies Peonia, a site Homer referred to by naming Axios, the earth's widest and most beautiful river.

Kilkis Today

At the end of the archaic era, the region of Kilkis came into the hands of the Macedonian state into the boundaries of the present Hellenic state.
Today, the region is restructured financially and culturally and gladly embraces its visitors in its splendid areas, marked with natural beauty.

The people are creative, hardworking and very hospitable. Their main occupations are agriculture, animal husbandry, industry and tourism. Many crops are grown here including cereals, tobacco and cotton. The capital of the prefecture is Kilkis and other important towns include Goumenissa, Axioupoli and Polycastro.

The hill of Ai-Giorgis dominates the town of Kilkis, which is spread out at its feet. The post-Byzantine church of Aghios Georgios graces its summit built in 1832, it contains unusual wall paintings.

Kilkis Perfecture

Just 6 km southwest of Goumenissa are the village and archaeological site of Europos. The ancient kouros found here and on exhibit in the archaeological museum numbers among the most important findings of the region. Also worth a visit is Palio Ginekokastro, where one can find the remnants of an old Byzantine fortress, built by Andronikos III Paleologos (1328-1341).

In the northern part of the prefecture is one of its jewels: Lake Doirani, a natural wonderland. Swimming there is a pure pleasure, while enjoying the idyllic hamlets built along the sandy shores. The taverns at Doirari village serve delicacies fished from the lake.

The western section of the prefecture is mountainous. The ascent of Mt. Paiko (1.500 meters altitude) brings much to marvel at: thickly wooded slopes, rushing brooks and streams and delightful little villages, such as Griva, Kastaneri and Livadia.
