About Komotini

Komotini (Greek: Κομοτηνή) is a city in the region of East Macedonia and Thrace, northeastern Greece. It is the capital of the Rhodope regional unit. The city is home to the Democritus University of Thrace, founded in 1973. The city stands at an altitude of 32-38m on the Thracian plain near the foothills of the Rhodope Mountains. Komotini may not lie in front of the sea, like other northeastern Greek cities, however the nearest beach is 20 min. away by car.
552 2712Built at the northern part of the plain bearing the same name, Komotini is one of the main administrative, financial and cultural centers of northeastern Greece and also a major agricultural and breeding center of the area. It is also a significant transport interchange, located 795 km NE of Athens and 281 km NE of Thessaloniki. The presence of the Democritus University of Thrace makes Komotini the home of thousands of Greek and international students and this, combined with an eclectic mix of Western and Oriental elements in the city's daily life, have made it an increasingly attractive tourist destination.
According to the 2011 census, the municipality's population amounts to 66,919, a number that does not include approximately 12,000 resident students, trainees and soldiers. Komotini is home to a sizeable Muslim minority, which constitutes 45% of the city's population, fact that colors the city with a multicultural spirit.
There are two airports near Komotini. The nearest is in Alexandroupoli (65 km), and the other is in Kavala (80 km). It has rail and bus links to all continental Greek cities as well as Istanbul, and the good provincial road network has been supplemented by the new Egnatia Odos motorway.
