The modern town of Alexandroupoli is the first Greek city to be encountered when crossing the Turkish and the Bulgarian borders. A part of its old fisher village charm evokes the memory of a distant past and the Lighthouse stands proudly casting uninterruptedly its light on the sea for over a century.
Another experience not to be missed is the “fish auction” in the local fish market. You can also try go fishing with local fishermen and enjoy your favourite activity while taking in the view to the sea, particularly enchanting when the sun sets. Don’t miss the opportunity to stroll along the waterfront or visit the nearby situated towns of Traianoupoli and Feres, boasting gems like the “Hana” baths, the church of Panagia Kosmosoteira and the Evros Delta.
September is traditionally the wine grape harvesting month in Greece and it has been a family matter for the longest time, as every member of the family, neighbours and friends work hard to complete this demanding agricultural labour. Next time you visit Greece, plan ahead and experience this age old tradition.
