The Greek city and port of Volos is located in Thessaly of mainland Greece and is around 325 km to the north of Athens and 215 km to the south of Thessaloniki. The town's port is the region's only access to the sea and the town is the capital of the Magnesia region. Volos' port is one of the newest ports in Greece with many of its buildings being constructed after 1955, when an earthquake destroyed much of what was there before. The University of Thessaly is located in the city which is also a centre for manufacturing, services and tourism for the region. The city played an important role in the 2004 Olympic Games as since then has also hosted other athletic events such as the European Athletics Championships. The city also hosted the 7th International Olympiad on Astronomy and Astrophysics in July and August 2013.
The city is regarded as one of the most beautiful in Greece and its long history can be seen in its buildings. The many mansions, municipal buildings, museums, early 20th century industrial buildings and lovely churches all combine to make Volos a place worth visiting.
From the city's port, ferry services depart to Skiathos, Alonissos, Glossa and Skopelos.
Glossa is a village and a community in the north western part of the island of Skopelos in the Northern Sporades.
The architecture in Glossa consists of two-storey whitewashed houses with wooden balconies and tiled roofs.
Ruins of Roman baths can be found near the port as well as 4th century BC remains of the citadel of ancient Selinous, and ruins of a 5th century temple of Athena.
