5 years ago this was quiet and beautiful. Now it's Instagram hell. 100s of people crowd every part of the river and with this comes a-holes who drop plastic trash everywhere. If you go, and it's still worth it when quiet - take your trash...More

Very green landscape surounded by hills with oak and elm trees. There is a path where road stops in Glyki with bridges above river. The colors of river are amazing with light blue clear water.

Beautiful landscapes and river, it is a must if you are in the area. Park your car at the cafe and walk up the path for 15-20 mins to relax and see the springs of the river. Nature at its best!
