We came with our kids to see the battle reenactment, we loved it! We got tired trying to get up there, it was chaotic, not enough space for cars, not enough to busses to get us all up there . I hope the next years will be more organised.

Such a beautiful experience.. the resident soldiers were all very polite and offered us a long tour of the site along with a very interesting historical narration. You start from the hillside peak overlooking the Greek-Bulgarian borders and Strymonas river, then you can take a close look to the various firearms and defending mechanisms used in the battles during WW2...

A great place to experience the history of Greece during the German attack in the World War 2 at 1941. A live travel in history with military officers to guide and to recount you in the battles, the heroes, the agony and the story as it was live by people inside the bunker!!!!

A must for World War II enthusiasts such as myself. The fort is really big and you could easily get lost if not with a guide. What caught my ear the most during the tour is that when the Germans ordered the surrender of the fort, the Greek Major refused and replied "Forts are not surrendered, they are taken" (a... More

If you love learning about history you must visit the Fort Roupel. In there you can learn a lot of new things about the history of Greece during the World War II.

Whatever your sat nav says turn off the motorway at the Roupel Sign and continue up the steep road until you reach a barrier. We were greeted by a smart soldier who in perfect English asked for one of our passports before letting us climb the rest of the hill to the car Park. We were shown round by another... More

Very interesting visit of a 2d WW bunker next to the Bulgarian borders. We visited the undergroung bunker in October and the wather was cold, but it was worth it. The guide was a soldier (stationed there) and knew a lot of interesting anecdotes. our kids loved it!!!

I was impressed by this bunker. The road to the bunker offered a beautifull image of the valley, in order to understand the movements during WWII. The soldier that guided us was full of emotions, he transmitted them to us. I became familiar with a small page of history. Thank you! The bunker can be visited everyday between 5-8 p.m.
