Thrace (Thraki)

Geography: Occupies the northeastern corner of Greece. It is today considered a place where the East meets the West in perfect harmony, as it is the connecting link between Asia and Europe. 

A special place with a very rich history, and it has been relatively untouched by the tourism explosion. Neolithic finds, antiquities dating from the Hellenistic era, Roman and Byzantine monuments, can be found everywhere in Thrace.

To the north it meets the Rodopi mountain range, whose foothills become fertile plains to the south. The lakes and wetlands of Thrace are among the most important in Europe with perhaps more than three hundred protected species of birds. More than 200,000 wild water birds spend their winters here. The flora has drawn the attention of ecologists.
