Evros

Evros, one of the most outstanding features of its landscape are the wetlands made by the big rivers that cut through it the Evros and the Nestos. Its antiquities date from the Paleolithic era with the appearance of the first Thracian tribes to the period of Roman domination (2nd and 3rd century B.C.), when its civilization reached its peak.

Alexandroupoli, the capital of the district of Evros, is a seaside town known for its fine sandy beaches. A pretty town with well laid-out streets and neo-classical buildings. To the northeast of Alexandroupoli is Feres with its especially important Byzantine cathedral of Theotokos tis Kosmosotiras. Along the Greco-Turkish border, to the north, is Soufli, famous for its silk production and its silks, and even further north are Didimotiho and Orestiada. The first is a splendid Byzantine city and the second is a small town built in a fertile area.
