It is 33 km NW. from Kilkis and 79 km NW. from Thessaloniki. The old name of the village, during the Turkish occupation, was Erzeli or Erzeli and so it is officially mentioned in 1919 in the Government Gazette 48A-05/03/1919 to be annexed to the then community of Akintzali. It was renamed Alexandra in 1927 [2].
