Nea Moudania (Greek: Νέα Μουδανιά, Néa Moudaniá; often referred to as Moudania (Μουδανιά, Moudaniá), the name of the municipal unit the town belongs to) is the seat of the municipality of Nea Propontida, Chalkidiki, Greece. The town is 60 km south of Thessaloniki and is the financial and commercial center of Chalkidiki. It was built after 1922 by Greek refugees from Anatolia who wanted to give the settlement the name of their hometown (now Mudanya, Turkey), hence the addition of the word nea, which means new in Greek. Nea Moudania hosts the Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture Technology of the Alexander Technological Educational Institute of Thessaloniki. The town's harbor serves as Thessaloniki's adjuvant.
