Kalavrita is a small town in the inland part of the regional unit of Achaia, in Peloponnese. Its name derives its origin in the numerous clean water springs, that exist even today. It is mostly known for:
1. The Holocaust that the town suffered from the German NAZI troops in 1943, that is considered as one of the cruelest atrocities of the World War II in Europe.
2. In the modern days, Kalavrita is a great winter tourist attraction partly because of the natural beauty of the mountainous area and partly because of the famous Ski Resort.
