Xanthi - Cultural crossroad
Monday, 24 October 2016
An exquisite city in Thrace, full of picturesque side-streets and traditional houses. It is surrounded by untouched natural environment and it is near wetlands of great importance. It is also the home of a university, with thousands of students who enliven the city. It is inhabited by Christians and Muslims, who live together in harmony.
