There are many beautiful towns and hamlets in the Island of Samos, scattering in the Municipality of Vathy, the Municipality of Pythagoreio, the Municipality of Karlovacy and the Municipality of Marathokampos.
The interesting thing is that many beautiful towns in the beautiful islands in the Greek Aegean Sea have similar names. For example, you can find many towns in many islands that have the name Pyrgos, or Limnionas or Neochori.
Beautiful Karlovassi Town has the second biggest settlement in Samos Island, where about 5,500 residents live. Some sources say the number of population in this town is 6,000.
Logically, the town has not this great number, which exceeds the numbers of populations in Vathy, Pythagorio and some villages near them combined, but the entire settlement.
If so, why should Vathy be the capital city? Bring in any disagreement or facts through the form below! I could be wrong. Thanks.
The beautiful town of Karlovassi is on the northern coast of Samos Island, about 30.5 kilometres from the capital city, Vathy and it takes about 45 minutes drive. Karlovassi Town is the second harbour at the northern coast after Vathy and the third port, after Pythagorio.
There are some beautiful buildings and the quite and beautiful Karlovassi Square is a good meeting place, where some people engage sometimes in doing arts, celebrate and perform folkloric dances.
