Kavala Town situated on a peninsula with a Byzantine castle throning on the top, there's a distinctive island feeling about Panagia. Narrow streets, some too narrow for cars, and steps leads to the houses. It's easy to get lost - the old town is like a labyrinth.The modern name Kavala actually means riding, a name the city got because when you came from Philippi over the hill of Saint Silas, looking down on the city it looked like you were riding a horse.Kavala used to be a center for the tobacco industry. While some tobacco still is grown in this area, the old tobacco factories are now getting a new life. One has become a modern and really pretty shopping center, another is used for exhibitions and others again as restaurants or clubs. Shopping in Kavala isn't very interesting - loads of expensive shops with cheap stuff. The exception is the local Saturday market - it is great fun.Kavala has approximately 60 000 inhabitants. The town has two hospitals (old, but a new, modern hospital is under construction), cinema, theater, an archaeological museum, a college, a public library and of course, a great selection of restaurants and bars.
