ABOUT THE AREA
Kavala is a bastion of authentic Greek beauty but is also a modern city that combines old and new in exciting ways.
Stunning white houses clamber up a hill behind a picturesque harbour. Gorgeous little houses cling to steep paths in the historic ‘old quarter’. There are sandy beaches, stately squares, chic shops and great walks.
This vibrant city has two crowning glories. A majestic 15th century castle dominates the hilltop and a huge, arched aqueduct built for a sultan 500 years ago still slices through the streets.
These magnificent landmarks light up like beacons at night when restaurants and bars come to life in Kavala and tourists stroll around in the footsteps of history. The city can be traced back 2,700 years, when it was called Neapolis, or New Port, and Alexander the Great ruled. The Romans landed there and won a huge battle.
The Apostle Paul was an early visitor, conducting the first Christian baptism there in 49AD and becoming the city’s patron saint. Venetians and Ottoman Turks invaded.
The city wears with pride the many monuments of its amazing history – but it isn’t all about the past. Locals call it ‘the Blue City’ in tribute to the Aegean Sea that fills the Bay of Kavala. There are several lovely sandy beaches, including four with Blue Flag awards.
The cobblestoned port, lined with cafes and palm trees, is busy with everything from traditional fishing boats to contemporary cruise liners.
Stylish streets lead from the main square of Platia Elefterias. Discover smart modern shops, small atmospheric ones and a huge shopping mall once a warehouse when tobacco was the big local industry.
Stroll uphill through Kavala’s atmospheric lanes to Panagia, the lovely old quarter, where colourful boutiques and cafes squeeze into the old houses. it’s on the way to the castle, known as Kavala’s Acropolis, where the views are fantastic.
There are mountains, forests, rivers, waterfalls, even healing mud baths in the countryside nearby. But you can’t get away from history. Philippi, a remarkable world heritage ancient site from almost 3,000 years, is only a few kilometres away.
There’s a lot going on in Kavala throughout the summer. And the weather makes sure people can get out and enjoy the events.
in the last part of June the town enjoys ‘Freedom’ with numerous cultural events held to celebrate its liberation in the 1913 Balkan War. The highlight is on June 29 in honour of the Apostle Paul, Kalamata’s patron saint.
There’s also a Wood Water Wild Festival of music, climbing, bike races, archery, handicrafts and lots more activities along a two-mile ‘environmental’ path and stream in Old Kavala.
Average temperature in June is just over 20 degrees Centigrade. On most days the sun will be out for about 12 hours. The sea will be warm enough for a dip, at an average temperature of about 20 degrees.
An international festival that celebrates everything from culture to cuisine from other countries spices up Kavala for four days in July. There’s a street bazaar, music, dancing, cinema, plays, children’s events and street theatre.
July is one of the driest and hottest months of the year. There is likely to be more than 300 sunshine hours in the month and the thermometer will sometimes climb close to 30 degrees Centigrade. The sea is very pleasant 25 degrees and there is very little wind.
Weather conditions are more or less the same for August when the Philippi cultural festival of Kavala, one of the largest events of its kind in Greece, is well under way. Productions which include all types of concerts, plays, dancing, poetry and art start in July and continue through August.
Events are staged in different venues in the town but the main focus is at the ancient theatre in the Philippi archaeological site, once the home of the king of Macedonia who was Alexander the Great’s father.
in September Kavala’s beaches are still busy and the sea temperature will still be about 24 degrees. The sun should shine for nine or 10 hours a day and it’s one of the driest months.
