Drama, a city with long history

Drama, a city with long history

The natural wealth of the city in plenty of running water did not leave anyone unmoved by his passage from this area. Both prehistoric man and one of the historical years organized their lives around the water, making the area of water a connecting factor of the long presence of man in the modern city. The earliest permanent human settlement on the site of present city of Drama was identified after a systematic excavation of the prehistoric settlement of the "Arcadian", south of the park of Saint Barbara. The Neolithic settlement is the first residential heart of the city since the mid-6th millennium BC.Although Drama, in the mid-19th century, is the Capital of a big region, where there axist the administrative center, the army and the courts, it can not compete with the port of Kavala, a hub of the region. Significant changes are made to the city after 1870, when the production and the trade in tobacco cause population growth and strengthening of the commercial traffic. The operation of the railway station by 1895 and the improval of the road network to the port of Kavala connect Drama with the major centers of the empire and maritime trade routes. Large tobacco firms establish branches in Drama, built warehouses, operate banking offices, and England opens consulate in the city. Soon, new neighborhoods are created around the waters of Santa Barbara and west of the walled area to meet the needs of 6000-7000 residents. The new residents, Muslims, Christians and Jews, constitute separate residential cores according to the standards of the Ottoman period. Christians, who constantly reinforced with families from Western Macedonia and in particular Epirus, number at least 200 families in 1880, located within the old walls and south of this area in Santa Barbara. Muslims are located west of the market and settling Jews in the area of the waters of Santa Barbara. The new public buildings of the city and the private residences reflect the economic strength and influence of European standards. The Greek community differs, from 1870 until the liberation, for the economic development, the establishment of Educational Associations, the rebuilding of schools and the charity associations. In the early 20th century, When the population is already 14,000 people and the economic progress is continuing, sporadic violence of an undeclared war are being recorded, the Makedonian race. The Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Drama, the elders and the people of the town organize the defense of the Greek community.

Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes is the biggest island of the Dodecanese. It lies at the south-eastern corner of the Aegean, opposite the coast of Asia Minor, about 11 miles away. It has an area of 1398 square kilometres, being 79.7 km long and 38 km wide. The city of Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese Prefecture, a group of islands formerly known as the Southern Sporades. The name Dodecanese (Twelve Islands), although finally prevailing, does not correspond to the actual number of islands making up the Prefecture, there being many more than twelve. The medieval town of Rhodes, or the Old town as the locals call it, is a living monument. It is a well preserved centre where many Rhodians live and work. Various projects are currently being implemented and developed by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Rhodes in aid of the restoration and improvement of the medieval town, which has been designated a world monument of architectural heritage by UNESCO.The fortress town was divided into two parts: The KOLLAKIO or KOLLAKO to the north, including the Street of Knights, leaders, the Palace of the Grand Master (Castello), the official churches of the Order, the Hospital (today’s museum), and other edifices. This area was separated from the rest of the town by inner fortifications, sections of which are still preserved. The BURGH or HORA to the south, with the old market (Socrates Street) and Turkish bazaar around Suleiman’s mosque, and other sites. Hora was the area for the bourgeois, and the Greeks, as well as other nationalities (Jewish, Turkish and others) each lived in their own districts. Dating from 1522 – the start of the Turkish occupation of Rhodes and their settlement within the fortress town – construction began on the newer districts beyond the walls, the so-called Marasia. These took their names from the major churches of the districts Ag. Anargyroi, Ag. Iannis, Ag. Anastasia, Metropolis, Ag. Giorgios Ano, Ag. Giorgios Kato or Kammenos (burned down), and Ag. Nikolaos. Greater Marasi, or Neohori, was developed by the Italians (1912-45) who also constructed the recent buildings of Mandraki city centre. They did not employ the island’s traditional style, but rather tried to echo the walls and fortifications, creating an architectural complex that impresses even now. These buildings included the Prefecture Administration building, the City Hall, the Port Authority, the Post Office, the Bank of Greece, the Aktaion, the New Market, the National Theatre, and the Hotel of the Roses, which now houses the Casino following its restoration (April, 1998). Adjacent to the Prefecture building is the Church of the Annunciation, modelled on the destroyed Knights’ church of Saint John. Opposite the National Theatre is the mosque of Murat-Reis. The visitor may see other buildings of the same period in the area of Neohori: the Teaching Academy of Rhodes, the Girls Orphanage, the Hospital, and others.
