Alexandroupoli - Where the Experience will take place

What Wikipedia says

 

Alexandroupoli is a city in Greece and the capital of the Evros regional unit in East Macedonia and Thrace. It is an important port and commercial center of northeastern Greece. In 1920, the King of Greece, Alexander I, visited the city, and the local authorities decided to rename the city as Alexandroupoli ("city of Alexander"), in the Greek King's honour. The current metropolitan population is estimated at around 70,000 inhabitants, and its area covers the southern portion of the regional unit, running from the Rhodope regional unit to the Evros Delta.

Alexandroupoli is one of the newest cities in Greece, as it was only a fishing village until the late 19th century. However, the modern city is located at the site of ancient Sale, a Greek city of the classical era founded by colonists from the island of Samothrace, mentioned by Herodotus.

The settlement's history goes back to the 19th century, when the area was part of the Ottoman Empire. Long used as a landing ground for fishermen from the coast of Samothrace opposite, a hamlet developed in the area during the construction of a railway line connecting Constantinople to the major cities of Macedonia from Kuleliburgaz. The work was part of an effort to modernise the Empire, and was assigned to engineers from Austria-Hungary. The settlement soon grew into a fishing village known as Dedeağaç.

Alexandroupoli benefits from its position at the centre of land and sea routes connecting Greece with Turkey. The city houses four Departments of the Democritus University of Thrace (based in Komotini) Landmarks in Alexandroupoli include the city's lighthouse in the port, the archaeological sites of the Mesimvria Zone and Maroneia stretching out to the small port of Agios Charalambos, the city's waterfront (the centre of commercial activity), and the nearby Evros Delta.
