Arguably, the meeting point of Komotini is Eirini Square (or Square of Peace), a large square located in the city center that you definitely need to cross. Dozens of dining and leisure options are offered to enjoy a coffee or lunch like the locals do. Then walk to the pedestrian shopping street of Ermou leading to the imposing Clock Tower and the Yeni Mosque. In the Square of Hephaestus, you may find gathered all the tinplate workshops of the city, also known as 'teneketzidika'. Among the buildings, scattered mansions have been preserved reflecting the economic welfare of the past.

Just 4 km to the north of Komotini, you can find a site of incomparable natural beauty, the pine forest of Nymfaia. Ideal for trekking tours, experience a land where nature still reigns. When the weather conditions favor it, you can have a nice panoramic view of the plains of Thrace distinguishing even Mount Athos on the horizon. By the way, if you still want to stay in town, there is the Public Botanic Garden where you can enjoy a fresh relaxing walk.
