Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Apodotia is a municipality in Aetolia-Acarnania, Greece. Aetolia-Acarnania is one of the prefectures of Greece. It is located in the western part of Greece. The prefecture is a combination of the regions Aetolia and Acarnania. Its capital for historical reasons is Mesolongi and its biggest city and economical centre is Agrinion. The area is now connected with the Peloponnese peninsula with Rio-Antirio Bridge. The surrounding prefectures are Arta in Epirus, a narrow length bordering Karditsa of Thessaly, Eurytania to the northeast and Phocis to the east. It is the largest prefecture in area in Greece.
The prefecture excludes islands lying in the west which belongs to the Kefallinia prefecture. There is one reservoir and a lake in the central part. Its mountains include the Panaitoliko in the northeast and the Acarnanian Mountains where a spring water company was founded. For the earlier history of Aetolia and Acarnania became a prefecture and merged to form Aetolia-Acarnania. In the 20th century, ferry services with Rion with the Peloponnese began. In the 1950s and the 1960s, ferry services began to use vehicles. A drawbridge linking the island of Lefkada began in the 1960s. In 1999, the road was re-repaired and finally opened to traffic. In 2000, the construction of the Rio-Antirio or the Trikoupis Bridge connecting the Peloponnese began construction and was opened to traffic in August 2004. The superhighway, the Ioniki Odos Ionian Highway which will run centrally bypassing communities and places at whole is in plan but the date of construction has yet set.
A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Apodotia is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
