Potamia is the homeland of the famous sculptor and immigrant from Thassos Polygnotos Vagis. In the village there is a museum dedicated to him that displays traditional, realistic and fragmentary creations of the artist.
Skala Potamia is on the northeast side of Thassos and is only 3 km away from Potamia. It is a beautiful seaside resort with picturesque beaches, one of which is the Golden Beach on the border with Skala Panagia.
