About Alexandroupolis

Alexandroupolis, with a population of over 60,000 people, is the capitol of Evros County. The town was named after King Alexander, who visited the area after the 1920 liberation (May 14). The town is the seat of the medical school and the pedagogical academy of Democritus University. By the 19th century, the population consisted primarily of fishermen, but after 1870 it began to expand, especially after the installation of the railroad connecting Thessalonica with Istanbul.

Alexandroupolis is a new town with modern infrastructure based on a well-structured urban plan. The town has a harbor, airport and railroad station, making it an important transportation junction.
