What to do in Xanthi

What to do in Xanthi

The serpentine Nestos River

The Nestos River cuts across the Rhodopi Mountains, trying to reach the sea, snaking in and out of the mountain range and creating the famous ‘Nestos Straits’. These meanderings result in unique geological formations and are a sight worth seeing by boat.

The birthplace of Democritus

Here you’ll find one of the most important archaeological sites in northern Greece. The first Greeks that settled here in the ancient city of Abdera were from the Ionian city of Teo. The Klazomenes, from Asia Minor, came later in 654 BC and Democritus was born here. Its marvellous small museum will delight you.

The Xanthi bazaar

With a long history, broken only by the centuries of Ottoman rule, the Xanthi bazaar has been a mainstay of residents of the city and an attraction for visitors from all around Greece and abroad. Famed for the diversity of merchandise on display, it is multicultural bazaar, full of colour, sound and hypnotic aromas.
