Fort Lisse

lisse

Fort Lisse is just outside Ochiro village and about 2 km away from Neyrokopi. It is in this fort that the Greek army fought bravely against the German and Bulgarian divisions on the 6th and 7th of April 1941. Against the furious attempts and assaults of the intruders, the fort was never occupied but instead was surrendered to the Germans after the signing of the treaty between Greece and Germany.

The German troops saluted the Greek soldiers and treated them as heroes during the surrendering of the fort.
In memory of this battle and to honor the men who lost their lives a small museum has been built on the spot and scheduled visits inside the fort and through the tunnels is a unique experience for younger and older crowds.
The manpower of the fort was made up of 12 officers and 457 soldiers.

Because of the secrecy and the need to camouflage, th effort is very hard to spot from the outside.

Housed in a refurbished old water mill, by the springs of Mylopotamos, the aquarium hosts fresh water fish only, mostly from the rivers Nestos and Strymonas.

The fresh water fish are one of the most important parts of our country’s fauna and is considered by experts the most endangered one.

Out of 154 species that live in Greek lakes and rivers, 83 of them (almost 66% of the overall population) live exclusively in our country, are very rare, endangered and unknown to the majority of us.
