Kozani is a mountainous town and its continental climate brings hot summers and cold winters, with snowfall gracing the region during the winter months. At the heart of Kozani lies the Kovedareios Library, a treasure trove that spans four centuries. Strolling through Kozani's historic centre around Nikis Square, you can encounter grand 18th-century houses.
