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.
Giannitsa is a town in Greece in the Pella Prefecture. It is the largest city in the Macedonian Plains region, and is chiefly an agricultural centre. Not far from the city are the Ancient Ruins of Pella, birthplace and capital of Alexander the Great. Giannitsa is built on the site of a former lake, and its Ottoman remains include a watchtower. Its centre has many shops.
The Ancient Ruins of Pella are just five kilometres out of Giannitsa. This is the birthplace of Alexander the Great. Among things to see here are the Macedonian Palace, many mosaics, and the remains of the House of Dionysius, whose columns appear today on many other famous buildings throughout the world.

Giannitsa is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
