Piges Agias Varvaras

Reviewed By Joseph G - Montreal, Canada

This is a fascinating place to take refuge and cool off on a hot summer day in Drama: the Santa Barbara Park has small lakes, Waterfalls, and Fountains created from the turquoise Springs. The trees provide a lot of shade which coupled with the water makes the air cool and fresh.
The Park has long trails and paths and a few small wooden Bridges.The water is chrystal clear and home to ducks, swans and fish.
All around there are restaurants, bars and coffee shops. Of particular interest and beauty at one end is the Hydrama Hotel, the first 5 star-hotel in Drama housed in a renovated old tobacco warehouse. In the small pavillon next to it during our visit, the short film festival was taking place.
Definitely a must do in Drama.

Aggitis Cave

Reviewed By MariaDanai - Athens, Greece

The only open to public cave in Greece with Springs of the river Aggitis!! It is certainly worth a visit not only for the cave itself but for the beauty of the natural surroundings as well!!

Elatias Forest

Reviewed By Peter K

1. A fantastic part of the Drama prefecture
2. Spectacular landscapes along the route.
Negative: Very tiring drive which at times seems like it will take ages to reach the destination. Due to this I'd honestly say that I personally would not do this trip again.

Posidonio Water Park

Reviewed By Nancy A

Very nice cooling off, great for kids, not too big so you always have a good idea where the kids are. 5 euro entrance, children under 5 for free, free use of all facilities after that (incl. sunbeds and umbrellas.) Large slides open 12:00 o'clock, park at 10:00 o'clock, closes at 20:00.
Contains 1x pirate island pool for the little ones, 1x 25 m pool, 1x childrenspool with depth around 0.75, 1 half-higher slide for younger kids, 3 higher slides: 1 blind tunnel, floating ring is obligated for using for this one..1 steep down, 1 half steep down. Some fast food available in the snack corner and a coffeebar. At every pool there are lifeguards as well as at all higher slides. Great escape when you are in the Kavala or Drama area and you want something different than the beach. About a 40 minutes drive from Kavala, Drama is 17 km away. Had a great time, kids just loved it, making mama relax too!!

Frakto Virgin Forest

Reviewed By Ένωση Ξενοδόχων Δ

Frakto Forest covers an area of approximately 10,000 acres in the northeast corner of Drama. In the area there are ravines and Valleys crossed by small mountain rivers with impressive Waterfalls on some of the highest peaks of the Rodopi mountain range. Its characteristic is the existence of the so-called "Virgin Forest of Central Rodopi", which is the only one in the country. It was dubbed as "virgin" in 1979 and immediately afterwards, in 1980, it was declared a "Preservable Monument of Nature" due to its great ecological and historical value. Since then it has been in a state of absolute protection, since no human activity is permitted except scientific research.
Το Δάσος Φρακτού καλύπτει μια περιοχή περίπου 10.000 στρεμμάτων στο βορειοανατολικό άκρο της Δράμας. Στην περιοχή υπάρχουν χαράδρες και κοιλάδες που τις διασχίζουν μικρά ορεινά ποτάμια με εντυπωσιακούς καταρράκτες σε μερικές από τις ψηλότερες κορυφές της οροσειράς της Ροδόπης. Χαρακτηριστικό του αποτελεί η ύπαρξη του λεγόμενου «Παρθένου Δάσους Κεντρικής Ροδόπης» που είναι το μοναδικό της χώρας.

Canyon of Petroussa - Pyrgoi

Reviewed By Peter K

Had a lovely time visiting the Petroussa Canyon.
Very easy to get to from Drama if you have a car ( around 20-25 mins )
The day I visited there had been much rainfall in the area which turned the water of the river very muddy in colour, which although not a pretty sight, it did not detract from the overall beauty of the location.
I would definitely visit again if I get the chance.

Reviewed By Konstantinos K

Η εκκλήσια είναι χτισμένη μεταξύ 1832 με 1835. Ο Άγιος Αθανάσιος είναι ο πολιουχος του χωρίου. Στη περιοχή υπάρχουν ταβέρνες μέσα σε φυσικό περιβάλλον με πλατάνια. Επίσης σε κοντινή απόσταση περίπου 1 χλμ υπάρχουν και οι παλιές παιδικές κατασκηνωσεις.
