Veria’s Peach Blossom!

Every year there is a unique phenomenon that appears in the Greek countryside, which resembles the one of Japan and its blossomed cherry trees. In mid-March, the fertile plain of Imathia is transformed in a vast pink coloured bed of blossoming peach trees. The Peach tree, in eastern traditions, is considered to be "the Tree of Life of the Earthly Paradise" providing people with life and joy. Peach blossoms symbolise spring, rebirth and as a result fertility. It also has inspired great painters such as Vincent Van Gogh. Veria’s Tourism Club is an active network of volunteers that organises a series of activities every year, such as bicycle rides, photography competitions and more that promise to help you experience the phenomenon in the most delightful way.
