Located in the east of Macedonia, in northern Greece, is the city and port of Kavala. The city lies on the Bay of Kavala and is just across from the Greek island of Thasos, and is roughly 160 km from Thessaloniki, 37 km from Drama and 56 km from Xanthi. The city has a rich history and there are many things to see and do whilst there. Dominating the top of the peninsular, where the old city stood, is the Castle of Kavala. Repeated reconstruction work and repairs to the castle's fortifications by the Byzantines, Venetians and Turks has left traces on its walls. In its current form, the castle was built in the first part of the 15th century on a foundation dating back to the Byzantine period. Other sites of interest include Kamares (the old aqueduct) which was constructed in the Roman/Byzantine period, the Imaret and the House of Mehmet Ali in the Old Town square.
From the city's port ferries operate to Agios Efstratios, Limnos, Lavrio, Kirikos, Chios, Karlovassi, Psara, Vathi and Mytilene.
The town of Agios Kirykos is located on the Greek island of Ikaria which lies in the North Aegean Sea. Many sailors and captains built their houses in Agios Kirykos, which is the island's capital, which gave the town a very nautical feeling. Many of the exhibits on display in the archaeological museum have been recovered from the sea bed and therefore the nautical theme continues. The sea around the island, according to myth, is where the son of Daedalus landed when the sun burn his wax wings and that the islet of Nikari, opposite Agios Kirykos, is the resting place of Ikarus.
The island's terrain is mainly mountainous and covered by Cypress, Plane, Oak and Pine trees. The tree coverage on the island enable the ground to retain moisture which in turn enable wild goats to graze. The forest of Radi, part of the Natura 2000 scheme, is considered to be the oldest in the Balkans. Low types of oak trees are its most numerous “residents”.
The island is accessible by boat from the port of Piraeus and Kavála, in the north of the country.
