Prefecture of Evros: Natural Environment


The terrain of the prefecture is flat to a great extend. The plains cover 2,578 sq. km, the semi-mountainous 1,240 sq. km and the mountainous 424 sq. km. The west coastline is almost straight, whereas the east coastline continues the smooth line up to the Evros Delta, where it becomes irregular, with indented recesses and projections, bays, lagoons and promontories. The island of Samothrace is elliptical and Mt Saos, one of the tallest in the Aegean, rises in the centre at an altitude of 1,664 m. The mountain range of East Rhodope ends in south Evros.
