About this location

Karlovasi

neon-karlovasion Photo Karlovasi (Greek: Καρλόβασι) is a town and a former municipality on the island of Samos, North Aegean, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is part of the municipality Samos, of which it is a municipal unit. It is situated on the northwest side of the island. According to the 2011 census, the population of the municipal unit was 9,855 inhabitants. Its land area is 100.330 km². The municipal unit shares the island of Samos with the municipal units of Vathy, Pythagoreio, and Marathokampos.

The School of Sciences of University of the Aegean is situated within the town and currently there are three academic departments:

Department of Mathematics
Department of Information and Communication Systems Engineering
Department of Statistics and Actuarial - Financial MathematicsThere are over 1,000 active students living within the town throughout the year.Karlovasi is a town with a rich cultural and industrial history, being a flourishing tannery and tobacco manufacturing center within the early 1900s. Many magnificent neoclassical mansions can be seen from that period as well as the remains of the large stone-built factories at the \"Ormos\" seaside.
The towns economy shifted to trade after World War II and the collapse of the leather market. Pottery and brick-making became a flourishing business due to the rare quality of the soil within the environs of Karlovasi while the towns market was continuously growing to become the largest and most important within the Island.
The connection of the Karlovasi Port with Seferihisars Sığacık, in Turkey, brings a large number of travelers within the island.
Lykourgos Logothetis, the islands leader during the Greek War of Independence was born here in 1772. Karlovasi is additionally closely linked to Yiannis Ritsos, one of the countrys most important poets, who spend most of his summers in his Karlovasi house, now the residence of his daughter, author Eri Ritsou.
Karlovasi has an unusually large number of almost cathedral-size churches, due to the fact that the modern town was formed by the unification of four smaller ones, all of them hometowns of wealth patrons such as tannery moguls and ship owners. The main touristic sights are the Tannery Museum, the Folklore Museum, the 11th century church of Metamorfosis and the adjoining Venetian castle at Potami. The waterfalls of Potami and the nearby coastes of Mikro and Megalo Seitani are among the islands most popular attractions."
