Region: Macedonia Area: Drama, Taxiarches
Eastern Macedonia with the cities of Kavala and Drama and the island of Thassos makes up a mountainous landscape of paramount beauty! In its eastern part, in the mountains of Drama, in the Elatia Forest, at a 1,200 m height, there is a unique variety of the evergreen tree (a variety of evergreen trees with a red bark) that exists in this area only. With its green meadows, its magnificent forests and its huge lakes this area is worth visiting for at least 2 or 3 days!

The protected Elatia, Simida and Fraktos forests
The Angitis cave
The fjiord region
The traditional villages of the region
The city of Drama, built at the foot of Mountain Falakron, has a rich history tokens of which are the domineering mansion houses to be seen almost everywhere. Endowed with vast green areas, with a lake that is the pride of its inhabitants and a huge park, the city of Drama has a very intense nightlife with its coffee shops and its numerous taverns with traditional local dishes.
Visit the archaeological museum and the Aghia Sophia church that dates back to the 10th century. A tip: the superb building of the railway station was built by the French in 1875. Visit the traditional villages of the region and donąt leave without visiting the most beautiful of all, the Pagoneri village.
Before leaving, taste the authentic cuisine of the region at the Heliostasi tavern (open only on weekends!)
At the southern part of Drama, after Doxato, make a stop at the wild bird park at the Kirya Agora. It houses 30 breeds of predatory birds some of which are trained.
