Samothrace is in the utmost northeastern part of the Aegean sea, in the Thracian sea and is 32 naval miles from Alexandroupoli.
Samothrace became worldwide famous from the statue “Niki of Samothrace” found today in the Museum of Louvre, and from the “Kabiria Mysteries” performed here in antiquity.
A particularity of Samothrace, not seen in any other island is its wild virgin nature with the steep mountains, the rich vegetation, the forests with sycamore, chestnut and arbutus trees but also the streaming waters, the waterfalls and the beautiful beaches. Characteristic are the plane forests that reach down to the beaches of the island.
Harbor of the island is Kamariotissa and also the secular center of Samothrace with restaurants, graphic taverns, rented rooms and hotels. Five kilometres to the interior is the capital named Chora or Castle or Samothrace. Chora looks as if it climbs to the mountain side with its traditional houses and graphic alleys. Here is the church of The Assumption of Virgin Mary, build in 1875 and inside it are the skulls of the Five Saint Witnesses of Samothrace.
On mountain Saos the climbers and the walkers can enjoy the amazing landscapes of the region.
In Therma you can relax in the spa sources, known since the antiquity for their therapeutic attributes.
