My name is George and I am studying at the American College of Thessaloniki. My major is International Relations and this is my third year in college. I was born and came from Orestiada which is the second biggest town in the region of Evros. Evros prefecture is the northeaster prefecture of the Greece. It is located in the eastern and northeastern part of the region of Thrace and borders with Turkey at the Evros River. The river of Evros borders with Bulgaria to the north and north-west.

Evros, with a length of 48 km,is the longest river that runs solely in the interior of the Balkans. It has its origin in the Rila Mountains in Western Bulgaria, flowing southeast between the Balkan and Rhodope Mountains, past Plovdiv and Parvomay to Edirne, Turkey. A small section of the northern branch of the river runs entirely in Turkey.Also it was handed to Turkey in order to prevent the town of Edirne from facing a Greek bank. The rest of the river to the sea flows along the border, near Kastanies, from where it turns south to enter the Aegean sea near Enez, where it forms a delta.

The river of Evros currently face the problem of extensive pollution cause of an accident that occurred last year in the industrial region of Bulgaria, had as a result the pollution of the river with toxic and metallics ingredients.
