Xanthi - Folklore Museum of Xanthi Folklore Museum of Xanthi
The Folklore museum of Xanthi is in the city centre and it is housed in two traditional buildings from 1870. They both used to belong to the family of tobacco traders Kougioumtzoglou and they were designed in a Renaissance style by a Russian architect. The basic characteristic of the decoration are red bricks as well as murals made by a German romantic painter. Located almost next to the Cathedral Square, it can be found in a region that was the centre of the Greeks during the Turkish occupation. By making a tour in the museum, you will have the chance to see the historical and social changes which took place in Xanthi over the last centuries. You will have the chance to learn about the everyday life in the city of Xanthi, what locals used to do on their free time over the past centuries and see from up close objects and tools that people were using every day.
