Kavala is an ancient city, the culture of which was much shaped by various historic events that happened here since ancient times. The same applies to the national character. Kavala was an important merchant city in the past, so local people are accustomed to a big number of foreign guests. This fact has made locals more tolerant and willing to help guests to make them feel comfortable. Residents of Kavala are also great interlocutors. Moreover, it is not hard for travelers to understand what locals really feel because they are open-minded people who do not hide their wishes. Active, cheerful, and sincere â€“ these are the main character traits that tourists mention when describing locals.
Proud of the rich past of their motherland, residents of Kavala are true patriots despite the fact that they can sometimes criticize life in Hellas (by the way, Greeks prefer to call their country this way). However, they will never forgive a foreigner who criticizes the â€śbest country in the worldâ€ť. This is one of the forbidden themes, so tourists are better to refrain from negative comments about Greece. The same applies to religion â€“ Orthodox Christianity is very important for locals, as well as for people in other regions of the country. At the same time, they can easily discuss other themes. Locals are wonderful interlocutors and great listeners.
Without a doubt, the family is the main treasure of every resident of Kavala. Elderly people are always respected and kids are cherished. Locals tend not to notice small faults of their kids and try not to punish them. Mothers are also particularly respected in every family. By the way, it is good to be a woman in Greece â€“ women frequently receive compliments and often feel like queens. It is simply impossible to accuse Greek men of neglecting or paying little attention to their women.
