  • Go up to the border area with Turkey itself is already interesting and get down to the Silk Museum in Soufli is one stop more than fascinating. You will learn all about silk, from Caterpillar to scarves, with many details. The Museum is free, located in an old two-story home beautiful, all exhibits are marked, as well as a spade, a number that has a detailed explanation on a handheld. The guide Nick is a nice British lady who lives for many years in Greece, so English is perfect and just as Greek. The owner, also present, speak some Italian. Thanks to the friendly guide you can get a broad overview of silk lightly and sparkling, during the first part of the visit, including bug reports and preparation for spinning machinery, and other operations. The second part of the visit I made it with the PDA, on the second floor (accessible by elevator). At the beginning you can also see the caterpillars, which will become the silkworms, all taken in their meal of Mulberry leaves. Even on their lives you learn interesting details. I finally had a chat with the Guide, brilliant person and deep knowledge of the territory and the local economy, gave me good advice for visiting the surroundings of Soufli and he also phoned to get information on my behalf. They also make visits to schools and children who remain fascinated by this world. Excellent!
