Mesimvria - Evros (Greece)

Mesimvria. Mesimvria is a small coastal town in the prefecture of Evros, in north-eastern Greece. It is best known for its ancient excavations of colonial settlements of residents of the island of Samothrace. They call it Zoni (= Zone) .

To the north of the archaeological site, there are houses from the 5th century BC. The city was walled at the time, had its own coins and prospered. Its decline began after Macedonian, and later Roman rule.

Part of the city is now under water, therefore it is forbidden to swim here. Excavating here is not complete.
