Devin’s Museum Collection

Devin’s museum collection is established by the local Comunity Center. Remnants of the roads of the Old World are still visible along the ridges of Devin. One of them started from Besapara, crossed the Rhodopes to reach Philippi and Thessalonica, the other from Philippopolis meandering at the foot of Mt. Persenk, the villages of Beden and Trigrad connected Thrace with the Aegean Sea.
