According to the 2001 census, the population of the municipal unit was 9,590 inhabitants. Its land area is 100.330 km². The municipal unit shares the island of Samos with the municipal units of Vathy, Pythagoreio, and Marathokampos.

Karlovasi is a town with a rich history in culture and in commerce, being a flourishing tannery and tobacco manufacturing centre in the early 1900s. Many magnificent neoclassical mansions can be seen from that period as well as the remains of the large stone-built factories at the "Ormos" seaside.

μια πολύ ωραία και ενδιαφέρουσα παρουσίαση της πόλης από ασυνήθιστη οπτική γωνία. Το βάθος είναι εξαιρετικό, το δυνατό φως είναι απολαυστικό και τα φυσικά χρώματα ευχαριστα. Μου αρέσει η ασυνήθστη αρχιτεκτονική της εκκλησίας και η ευκρίνεια με την οποία μας επιτρέπεις να παρατηρήσουμε τις πολλές διαφορετικές αρχιτεκτονικές απόψεις. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό βράδυ,

Rooftops view over town, with most notable are the light-blue domes, Costantino.
Contrast well onto the green forest uphill's, and fine daylight contributed to the enhanced outlines.

I am sure this city is an unique and fantastic place with many stunning architectural pearls. Like your presentation taken from a well selected POV to provide us with a wide crop. Well done. TFS.

A pleasant looking small coastal town with the roofscape in the foreground stretching off the view in to the prominent and charming dwelling. Exposure is balanced throughout, lovely tonal range with the eyecatching church provides the striking contrast. Some exquisite work and your photo does it justice. Well done. TFS

its nice to know that there are other colors than white and blue in greece :)
the rustic red rusted color rooftops are always a winner for photographs.
here we get to see the strong textures in the fg with some elegant architecture in the bg, very sweet indeed.
