The Sliding Bridge and the port of Halkida, Evia - Greece.

Chalkis or Halkida is the capital of the island of Evia (Euboea) in Greece. It’s situated on the strait of the Evripos (Euripus) at its narrowest point. This straight connects two gulfs and it is the place where a strange natural phenomenon occurs. Particularly in this place, the tide gives the viewer the impression that there is a river, the water of which flows sometimes to the north and sometimes to the south. One has the impression that the one gulf empties its water to the other one. This phenomenon attracted the curiosity of many scientists from the ancient years until today. The Evripos Strait which separates the city and the island from the mainland was bridged in 1962 with sliding bridge.
