Agia Paraskevi (Macedonia and Thrace)

Type: Bubbling Water
Description: At the southern end of the Kassandra peninsula on its south-western coast at the village of Agia Paraskevi there is a thermal center. The thermal center takes the water from drillings but the natural outflow of the thermal water is in a small cave close to the sea. The bottom of the cave is filled with thermal water in which sometimes gas is bubbling. Gases are bubbling also in the sea both close to the cave entrance and also in a wide area (some thousands m^2) around. The strongest emission is at about 50 m from the shore.
