Livaditis Waterfall

Livaditis Waterfall is about 60 meters high and is one of the largest waterfalls in the Balkans. It is located on the borders of Xanthi and Drama, at the foot of Mountain Koula in a location with rich vegetation of birch, maples, alder, fences, anchovies etc. The vertical rocks have been sculpted by the rush of the water and in the crevices of the rocks, rare species of flora such as Minuartia saxifraga, Impatiens noli-tangere, and Anemone nemorosa are growing. In winter the waterfall offers a unique spectacle to visitors, as it freezes and huge stalactites are created.
