ALEXADROUPOLIS :

The town of Alexandroupolis was inaugurated in 1880. It is famous for its hospitality and its main landmark, the lighthouse. It is the capital and largest town in Greek Thrace and is the dynamic centre for local and cross-border activity between Greece and Turkey and the  Balkans and acts as a gateway for East and West movement.

Alexandroupolis is well served with a modern port, railway, international airport and the European motorway, Egnatia Odos. This inter-modal transport network has made the town an important economic growth pole.

Situated in the town is: the University Hospital of the Democritus University of Thrace; An industrial zone; an important network of banks; and tourist infrastructure which give the town a cosmopolitan and tourist character.

The town has a tradition of fine cuisine, consisting of sea-foods and fresh fish. This is due to the 25 kilometres of coastline which stretches from the Evros River Delta to Makri and on to the archaeological site of Mesimvrias where extensive groves of trees reach the sea.

Alexandroupolis is designated a “Blue Flag beach city”. Close to the town is the camping site which is situated in a beautiful, lush and well wood area of 7 hectares, in one of the most attractive areas in Greece.

In this beautiful and friendly town, the wealth of Alexandroupolis can be seen in its museums: 

  • Museums, the Folklore Museum, 
  • the Ecclesiastical Museum, 
  • the Historical Museum of Alexandroupolis, 
  • the Ethnological Museum of Thrace and 
  • the Museum of Natural History, 

 These museums recorded the real wealth of Alexandroupolis, a beautiful city with friendly people. A crossroads of peoples, culture and beauty.
