During the Turkish occupation it was called Plasna and was located on the shores of Lake Giannitsa. Next to it was the settlement of Prisna or Vrasti, which after the lake dried up, was abandoned and the inhabitants moved to Krya Vrysi, which was already experiencing great residential development due to the arrival of many refugees from Asia Minor. At the end of the 19th century the two villages of Plasna and Prisna had a total population of around 360 inhabitants, mainly Greeks, but also a few Turks. The current name came from the location of a source of cold clean water after the drainage of the lake that existed in the area and the water shortage that followed.

Towards the end of the Occupation, in May 1944, Krya Vrysi became the operational headquarters of the dossier, armed by the German occupiers, of the order of Georgios Poulos, of the so-called "Greek Volunteer Corps". [4]

An important recreation center is the Ecological Park, with an area of ​​100 acres. Monuments of the city are the church of Agios Nikolaos and the monastery of Agios Loukas.
