Samothraki travel, tourism info

Samothraki is located in the NE Aegean Islands, near Limnos and Thassos and is the only island in Evros Prefecture. It is known since ancient times as the "Sacred Island" where the Kavirian Rituals (similar to the Eleusinian Rituals) took place.Its name probably derives from its mountainous landscape. The pre-Hellenic word "samos" meant "height" so "Samothraki" is "High Thrace". Its highest mountain is Saos (1664m) and its summit is called Feggari (Moon).Chora, the island's capital, is located at the inner part of the island and is built amphitheatrically over the ruins of a medieval castle far from the shore and hidden amongst the slopes of Mt Saos. Even though Samothraki has many natural beauties and charms to offer its visitors, it has stayed away from tourist expansion. This only makes it more beautiful to its faithful friends, who find some of the lost serenity of our times here.
