Lake Pikrolimni Kilkis Greece
A few kilometers outside of Kilikis and 23km from Thessaloniki is located the Lake Pirrolimni and the Thermal Baths. The peculiarity of Pikrolimn is due to the black mud (natural salt clay) that exists in its bed. Pikrolimni has been known since ancient times with a different name.
