Istimbei Fort, Neo Petritsi

Situated just 250 meters from the Bulgarian border, in the foothills of Mt Belles at an altitude of 1,936 meters, this fort-turned-museum was part of the Metaxas defense line, named after then dictator of Greece Ioannis Metaxas. It was built as defense against invasion and as a base for military attacks against the German-Bulgarian forces in WWII.
