According to the regional governor of Eastern Macedonia-Thrace George Pavlidis, tourism will be the heart of the region’s development model.

On his part, deputy prefect responsible for tourism Michalis Amiridis gave a series of interviews to the Bulgarian media and gave particular emphasis to the leisure opportunities available in the region throughout the year..
