Place name: Saint Nikolas church

Saint Nikolas church is located on the west side of the beach of Georgioupolis, its snow-white facade, like a beacon for sailors, invites all travelers seeking solitude, in its walls. But to get to it, you can either swim, or go on rough spit that stretches from the coast a few hundred meters.
