          Presentation
Rodopi is situated in the middle part of Thrace, extending between the Rodopi Mountains and the Thracian Sea. Its capital, the city of Komotini, demonstrates a lively cultural life where both the Christian and the Muslim elements are strongly preserved.
Heady streams, which flow from the Rodopi Mountains, run into the open sea. Lake Mitrikos and Vistonida Lagoon border the Prefecture of Xanthi. Furthermore, the European Footpath Ε6 runs over the mountainous parts of the Prefecture.
The south part of Rodopi has vast sandy beaches; one of the most touristic locations is Fanari. Other significant settlements of the Prefecture is the historic settlement of Maroneia, Iasmos with its numerous manors and Kechros, an overwhelmingly Pomak village.
          History
The first inhabitans of Rodopi were Thracian tribes who intermixed with Greek tribes. During the Roman Era, the hellenisation of Thrace had been completed. Following the foundation of Constantinople in 330 AD, Rodopi became a Byzantine province.
Bulgarian tribes made their appearance during the 7th century AD, followed by the Ottomans in the 14th century AD. The Greek Army entered Komotini in 1913, however the final withdrawal from Bulgaria was finalised in 1920. After the population exchange during 1922 – 23, a number of Muslim residents remained in the wider area.
