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.
Lachanas  is one of the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destinations that is located in Europe. It is a municipality in the Thessaloniki Prefecture, Greece. The population of Lachanas was 3,779 as of 2001. The seat of the municipality is in Xylopoli. Thessaloniki is a prefecture in Greece, containing Thessaloniki, Lagana and the northern portion of the Chalcidicean peninsula. The prefecture is the second in Greece in population and the largest in Macedonia as well as northern Greece.
Greece officially the Hellenic Republic is a country in south-eastern Europe, situated on the southern end of the Balkan peninsula. It is bordered by Bulgaria, the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and Albania to the north and by Turkey to the east. The Aegean Sea lies to the east of mainland Greece, while the Ionian Sea lies to the west. Both parts of the eastern Mediterranean basin, feature a vast number of islands.
Greece became a Roman province and in the process transformed Rome itself. Following the emergence of the Greek-speaking Byzantine Empire and 400 years of Ottoman control the modern Greek state evolved after 1821 to 1830 as an independent Kingdom. Initially encompassing only the Peloponnese, Central Greece and the Cyclades, it gradually expanded to the north and east, with subsequent territorial acquisitions in 1864, 1881 Thessaly, 1913 Macedonia, Epirus, Crete and the North Aegean islands, 1919 Thrace, and 1947 the Dodecanese islands.

Lachanas can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places. One can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and pursue enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace.
