  • Unique wetland at the borders of Xanthi and Rodopi. Its name derives from the ancient city of Vihistonia. It is the fourth largest lake in Greece, with a total area of 45 sq. km. The average depth is about 4 meters and is connected to the sea through narrow channels, which have been developed, fish farming activities. The view is unique especially at dusk.

The monasteries are connected by two wooden footbridges that make you have a lively agony to visit them. It happened to be the time of Vespers and sounded the wooden instrument of exceptional acoustics. The whole scene was a fairy tale.
