A few words about Tripolis:
Tripoli (Greek :
ΤΡΙΠΟΛΗ), older form and Latin: Tripolis, rarely Tripolitsa, Tripolitza
and Tripolizza is a city in the central part of the Peloponnesos, Greece, and
the capital of the prefecture of Arcadia and the province of Mantineia which
is the most populated province in Arcadia. The municipality is the largest
city in the prefecture as well and presently one of the only growing places in
Arcadia. The distance from Pyrgos is about 145 km E, 125 km E of Olympia, 144
km SE of Patras and ESE of Kalavryta, 78 km (old: 120 km) SW of Corinth and
about 148 (old: 200 km) WSW of Athens, W of Argos and Nafplio, NW of Leonidi,
N of Sparta, NNE of Kalamata, 33 km NE of Megalopoli and NE of Kyparissia, E

The city was created by merging three parts, which is the origin of its name
(from Greek τρεις πόλεις, meaning the three cities. Its main plazas are
aligned with the main street and with a highway linking to Pyrgos and Patras.
One of them is named Kennedy, the other is named Georgiou B' (George II). The
southern part has its main street named Washington. The main section of the
city is enclosed around the castle walls that were built during the Ottoman
occupation of Greece.
The city is surrounded by pine trees in the south and west, mount Mainalo (Maenalus)
in the west while another mountain is 5 km E and fertile lands elsewhere. The
closest mountain ridge of Mainalo is only about 1 km west.Wetlands used to
dominate much of the area in the northeast. The industrial area is founded in
the eastern part, formerly 100 m of the southern terminus of the superhighway,
it is now near an interchange? where factories are founded.
Tripoli is home to the two largest Armed Forces bootcamp centers of Greece,
one for the Hellenic Army and one for the Hellenic Air Force

Tripoli is mainly accessed from Athens and the rest of Greece through the
Corinth-Tripoli-Kalamata motorway, which is part of the E65. The motorway
bypasses Tripoli from the east and will continue to Kalamata, after
construction ends in that part (see List of Greek roads). An alternative route
is the GR-7 which used to be the main highway of Tripoli before the
construction of the motorway. The city is also accessed by GR-74 and GR-76
from Pyrgos and by GR-39 / E961 from Sparta.
In 1829, members of the Greek scientific community were attended in Tripoli
after its liberation.
