Keramoti Lagoons | Λιμνοθάλασσες Κεραμωτής

Sunset in Lagoon
After 243km the flow of Nestos River finally reaches the sea. Through the millennia the transferred material brought by the river from Rila Mountains in Bulgaria (where its sources lie) but also from the mountains of Western Rodopi and Falakro, through where it flows, has formed natural dams and an ecosystem of international importance that covers 55km2 and includes lagoons with salt and slightly salt water, swamps with salt and fresh water, as well as the riverside forest of Kotza Osman and endless sandy beaches, mixing sea and fresh water, that in some points is only separated by a few meters of land.

The Paggaio Mountain

The one of  the summit of Paggaio top called "Abgo" means Egg
Mount Paggaio constitutes a massif, extending at prefectures of Serres and Kavala. Its highest summit is the “Mati” (the “Eye), with an altitude of 1956 meters.
Its contribution is decisive towards preservation of fertility of the region, since many river-channels start from this mountain, in addition to the many springs that also sprout from there.
