One of the most beautiful events in the city of Xanthi (or else "The city with the 1000 colours") is of course the Carnival, we all wait eagerly every year!
When March is on the way, all Greeks in the north know that one of their weekends should be devoted to this city.
The colorful, funny costumes and floats of Xanthi’s cultural groups make their appearance in the Sunday’s Parade which begins at Foro and ends in AOX Stadium. The carnival music, retsina and the welcoming attitude of the people is what makes this carnival so special.
Of course the fun does not end when the parade ends. On the contrary continues with many parties either in squares or in various café-bars in the city. If you have a free weekend and it happens to be the days of Carnival, don’t hesitate to visit Xanthi. You will love it!
I was born in Albania and the last 14 years I live in Greece. I love music and photography because i believe that anything good or bad can be expressed with sounds and can be inprinted in pictures. Is the best way to remember every moment of our life because everything are worth remembering! One of my biggest dreams is to visit Rio De Janeiro!! The reason of course, the lovely sounds, people who express their feelings through dancing and the city's unique beauty!
