  1. 1. Keramoti • Keramoti (Greek: Κεραμωτή) is a town and a former municipality in the Kavala regional unit, East Macedonia and Thrace,Greece. • Originated as a small fisherman's village of Greek immigants from Asia Minor today Keramoti is a picturesque little sea resort with a faboulous sandy beach,several little hotels and a lot of vacation rentals.

  3. 3. Thassos island • Thasos or Thassos (Greek: Θάσος) is a Greek island, geographically part of the North Aegean Sea, but administratively part of the Kavala regional unit. It is the northernmost Greek island, and 12th largest by area. Thasos is also the name of the largest town of the island (officially known as Limenas Thasou, "Port of Thasos"), situated at the northern side, opposite the mainland and about 10 kilometres (6 mi) from Keramoti. Thassos island is a known from the ancient times for its termae making it a climatic and balneoclimateric resort area. • Thasos' economy relies on timber (it is rich in forests), marble extraxtion, olive oil and honey. Tourism has also become important since the 1960s, although not to the level of other Greek islands.

  6. 6. The Nestos river • The Nestos (Greek: Νέστος) or Mesta (Bulgarian: Места), formerly the Mesta Karasu (Ottoman Turkish), is a river in Bulgaria and Greece. It rises in the Rila Mountains and flows into the Aegean Sea near the island of Thasos. It plunges down towering canyons toward the Aegean Sea through mostly metamorphic formations. At the end, the main stream spreads over the coastal plain of Chrysoupolis and expands as a deltaic system with freshwater lakes and ponds forming the Nestos delta.The length of the river is 230 km, of which 126 km in Bulgaria and the rest in Greece. It forms some gorges in Rila and Pirin.
  7. 7. The Nestos • The Mesta's longest tributary is the Dospat River (Bulgarian: Доспат; Greek: Δεσπάτης, Despatis). The banks of the river are covered mainly by deciduous trees that extend into halfway between Bulgaria and Greece where it forms the modern boundary of Greek Macedonia and Thrace, as well as the boundary between the Kavala and the Xanthi regional units, having first crossed the Drama regional unit. The river later forms a delta to the north where swamplands, wetlands and a lagoon once existed except in the east.
  8. 8. The Nestos • Nestos River is one of the five longest rivers in Greece.It creates an environment of special interest, unique value and rare beauty, where rare plants and endangered animals find shelter.
  9. 9. • It is for these reasons that the region of Eastern Macedonia – Thrace decided to apply for the inclusion of the forest and the broader National Park into theUNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves Programme, consisting of 631 biosphere reserves in 119 countries. "The deadline is September 2015 and it is certainly worth the effort" says Panos Koutrakis, head of the Park’s managing committee. The forest is only one part of the broader National Park which is considered Greece’s largest wetland, including the river, its delta and 22 small lakes, all protected by the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands.
