The City of Alexandroupolis

With its strategic position, a crossroads of sea and land routes, Alexandroupolis connects Europe and Asia, East to the West. This beautiful seaside city, whose trademark is a Lighthouse, forms the centre of a truly fascinating region. The town was given the name “Alexandroupolis” in honor of Alexander the Great, who once had crossed the city while leading Greek troops to Andrianoupolis.

The modern town of Alexandroupolis is the first Greek city to be encountered when crossing the Turkish and the Bulgarian borders. A tour around the coastal zone between the archaeological sites of Mesimvria Zone and Maroneia stretching out to the small port of Agios Charalambos, a visit to ancient Ismara, to the cave-church of Agioi Theodoroi, to the mines and to the famous villa of Kirki are a must during your stay in the area.
