Kavala has a rich culture built over many years with various occupancies, including the Romans, the Goths and the Ottomans - who gave the city its name. Due to its location, it became a commercial centre linking the West to the East. The city is built on the slopes of Mount Simvolo, allowing all buildings to have a clear view of the spectacular sea.
