XANTHI

The smoke… flickered the city of Xanthi. The beautiful stone-paved alleys with its irregular paths blend perfectly with traditional houses, Byzantine-style churches and the Ottoman heritage. Today the old town is a real gem with restaurants, pubs and amazing shops for original shopping. The walk is relaxing and interesting, as every square, every corner awaits the visitor and a little or more surprise. The Samakov settlement, separated from Xanthi from the Kosonos River, is a special attraction.
