Thraki is located in Northern Greece. Its two major cities are Alexandroupolis, which is in the south, and Orestiada, in the north.

This is the part connecting Europe with Asia and the Aegean Sea with the Black Sea. Archeological findings show that there was life there since 3000 BC.

The name Thraki according to the legends comes from "Thrace", the daughter of Oceanus, sister of Europe, Asia and Libya, or from the Greek word "trahia", which means a geographically rough area. This is the place where in the ancient years many religious ideas and rituals (Orfika, Dionisia and Kaviria) were born and took place.

The area of Thrace consists of three prefectures, Evros on the east, Rodopi in the middle and Xanthi on the west. Excavations at the area have brought up samples of life starting from the Palaeolithic Age, near the rivers Evros and Ardas.

Thraki Today
Close to the end of the Bronze Age and the beginning of the Iron Age, Thracian races start spreading in Thrace continuing the prehistoric tradition. Settlements of that age have been found both on naturally protected hills, known as "Thracian Citadels" and in valleys.
When Thrace was part of the Roman Empire the Romans promoted and strengthened the local Greek character.

During the Byzantine Era the area was close to Constantinople and once more many monuments bear witness to its prosperity: Didimotiho, with its castle and 23 towers, the fortress of Ioannis Katakouzinos in Pythio and the cavern of Agios Theodoros in Alexandroupolis transformed into a temple wall painted in two phases.

Since the 18th century, the Greek element of the area has flourished both financially, as well as intellectually. Traces of this peak can be found in Soufli, the path of silk, Metaxades and Didimotiho.
