Nea Artaki (Greek: Νέα Αρτάκη) is a town and a former municipality on the island Euboea, Greece. Since the 2011 local government reform it is a municipal unit, part of the municipality Chalcis.[2] The municipal unit has an area of 23.015 km2.[3] Nea Artaki is located north of Chalcis. The town was founded in 1923 by Greco Turkish refugees from the town of Erdek (Greek: Αρτάκη - Artaki). The Greek National Road 77 links it with Chalcis and northern Euboea.
