The town of Chios is the administrative and cultural center of the island, built in a plain where the ancient town lay. With approximately 30.000 inhabitants, it pieces together most of the commercial and business traffic, but also an important part of cultural activities and entertainment. It is located beside the main harbor and within short distance from the airport. Prokymaia, the busy harbor road, is in the eastern side of the town and provides a relaxing escape to visitors who can enjoy a day or a night out. It is one of the liveliest parts of the town and provides lots of alternatives when it comes to nightlife. Also, the Castle, a number of museums, the Korais Library, the Cathedral, the University of the Aegean, Central Square, the Public Garden, Aplotaria, buildings with high architectural value and neighborhood streets which make everyone wonder about the past form Chios town.
