Nafplio has had many different names over the course of its history beginning as Nauplia, a regional version of Nea Polis meaning new city and at one point being called Napoli de Romania. It was the second capital of the First Hellenic Republic before it moved to Athens. Today is it a busy seaport on the Peloponnese. The city has virtually doubled in size since the 1970s with marshland being filled in and built over.
