Prefecture and the city of Xanthi:
An hour away only there is the city of Xanthi with its about 40 000 inhabitants. Xanthi is famous for its gorgeous historic centre. Traditional Byzantine style houses will fascinate visitors. Tavernas and their elaborate Greek cuisine will attract the guests. The historic Antika Street in the centre of the old town is one of the highlights. History is at every turn of a city in which many Muslims from Turkey and Pomaks from Bulgaria live. Xanthi was still occupied by Bulgaria at the last century and by the Ottoman Empire before. Nowadays people live in peace together in this animated city. The famous Xanthi Carnival takes place every year in February or March. At the beginning of September it is the old towns celebration. Porto Lagos is another highlight: a fascinating lake and sea landscape near the city.
