Picturesque Kavala is the second largest city in northern Greece, the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia and the capital of Kavala prefecture. It is situated on the Bay of Kavala, across from the island of Thasos. It has been inhabited since the Neolithic age.
.
Kavala has one of the most beautiful landscapes of Greek cities.

Kavala captivates visitors with its excellent climate, picturesque shores, sunny beaches, archaeological sites, museums, festivals and exciting nightlife.
Surrounded by sea and hills has some spectacular views.
Breathaking views.

The important monument of the old aqueduct, nowadays known as Kamares.

The Municipality building.

Α unique opportunity to meet the past and vanish in the present. The public libray.

Gorgeous old architecture.

There is nothing more delightful than swimming into the pure blue waters.

Καβάλα από τις ωραιότερες πόλεις της Ελλάδας

Εβελίνα Συμεωνίδου
Από την Καβάλα
Δείτε την ιστοσελίδα της: Evelinasym
H Καβάλα πρωτεύουσα του ομώνυμου Νομού είναι χτισμένη στους πρόποδες του όρους "Σύμβολο" και είναι η δεύτερη μεγάλη πόλη και λιμένας της Μακεδονίας.

H ωραία νύμφη της Ανατολικής Μακεδονίας. Αιώνες ιστορικού παρελθόντος.
Πόλη πανοραμική, αμφιθεατρικά χτισμένη, προσφέρει υπέροχες φυσικές εικόνες.
Τριγυρισμένη από την υπέροχη γαλάζια θάλασσα και τα καταπράσινα βουνά.
Όμορφο φυσικό τοπίο και θαλασσινές ομορφιές. Πόλη γραφική.
Το παλιό υδραγωγείο, οι σημερινές "Καμάρες", το οποίο προμήθευε κάποτε την πόλη με νερό.
Το όμορφο κτίριο του Δημαρχείου.
Το φρούριο, το υδραγωγείο, τα ειδυλλιακά σοκάκια και τα παλιά σπιτάκια με τις όμορφες αυλές τους, στολισμένες με λουλούδια, δίνουν στο παλιό αυτό τμήμα της πόλης το δικό της προσωπικό χαρακτήρα.

Πανέμορφες παραλίες με αμμουδιές και γαλάζια κρυστάλλινα νερά της θάλασσας.
