Kountoura_pella2Referring to the region of Pella in northern Greece, as one of “priceless treasures”, Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura said the destination has all the potential to emerge as a major alternative tourism destination.

“Our goal is to strengthen the region and all surrounding destinations, bringing forth their individual cultural and tourist wealth as well as separate categories of tourism offerings with regard to thematic, religious and spa tourism,” Minister Kountoura said during her recent two-day visit to Pella.

Ms Kountoura also met with local government authorities and tourism professionals to discuss issues affecting the sector and ways to extend the tourism season.

The minister said that alternative forms of tourism will lead to a diversification which can prove to be beneficial for both the local community and the wider national economy.
