Geography: Occupies the northeastern corner of Greece. It is today
considered a place where the East meets the West in perfect
harmony, as it is the connecting link between Asia and Europe.
A special place with a very rich history, and it has been
relatively untouched by the tourism explosion. Neolithic
finds, antiquities dating from the Hellenistic era, Roman and
Byzantine monuments, can be found everywhere in Thrace.
To the north it meets the Rodopi mountain range, whose foothills become
fertile plains to the south. The lakes and wetlands of Thrace
are among the most important in Europe with perhaps more than
three hundred protected species of birds. More than 200,000 wild
water birds spend their winters here. The flora has drawn the attention of ecologists.
