Cocktail Stories, Coffee and More in Alexandroupoli

Alexandroupoli. 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.
In the middle of the 19th century, fishermen from Maroneia and Makri established a small village, named “Dede-Agats”, meaning “the tree of the monk”. Tradition has it that it took its name from an oak tree, under the shade of which had preached and been buried a dervish.

In 1871 the little fishers’ village obtained a railway connection and the area became easily accessible by land. If we add the bustling port activity, we can easily understand why the area experienced such a great economic prosperity at that time. Traders and craftsmen settled in the city and consulates of various countries were established bestowing a unique cosmopolitan flair on the Alexandroupoli city.

The town was finally liberated by the Bulgarians on May 14th, 1920 and it was given the name “Alexandroupolis” in honour 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 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.

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 also a must during your stay in the area.
