Kavala is the second largest city in the northern Greece, the principal seaport of eastern Macedonia and the capital of Kavala prefecture. It is situated on the Bay of Kavala, across the island of Thassos.
I love this panoramic city, and ask Yianni to stop from time to time to take photos. The medieval castle in Kavala is situated at a hill above the town. Additionally the town's fortifications are still widely visible, especially in the costal front. Kavala is built amphitheatrically, with most residents enjoying superb views of the coast and sea.
It seems that it is going to rain though, and I try to take as many photos as possible. Me, Yianni and our children have the best memories from this beautiful city. We have spent about 4 months out here when the children were very small and my husband was working at a factory there. The city is much bigger now, but no matter what, it remains beautiful even better than those years. We have a long trip today, going back to Evia after spending 8 days on the Island of Thasos and this is the reason we set off quite early.
