This is new part of A2 motorway (egnatia odos) between Panagia and Grevena. It was the last part under construction which is ready since last weekend!!! The motorway at this part passes over mountainous area and wild forest which has also a significant population of brown bears! (one of the most important in Europe...)

Very nice pictures. I will be travelling from Thessaloniki to Ioannina this summer. Look forward to driving on the A2 motorway.

(The length of the third and fourth tunnels on the 2nd video will blow you away)

Sklavenitis, thanks for posting these videos. The motorway looks awesome! Did not expect that these tunnels would be this long!

Tunnel after tunnel. What's the slope in the fourth tunnel of the second video (or the fifth tunnel, if you count the tunnel in the very beginning of the video)?

No there is not driskos tunnel in these videos. The longest of the ones in the videos is Panagia tunnel, around 3,5 km.

1. Great videos, thanks for posting. It reveals the engineering masterpiece of this motorway, I lost my way counting all the tunnels on this stretch already.

2. That's interesting. In order to take the Panagia exit you have to first make a 180 turn, drive 500 more meters in opposite direction and then take your exit.

3. Those cones inside the tunnel should be removed, they pose some serious danger IMO.

It seems that the arrangement at Panagia is temporary as at the place there will be the connection with the future A3/E65 motorway.

The cones are also temporary as at the first days of the operation of the section there were some problems with sewage and electricity taps that were not properly fitted on the asphalt.

Hi, guys

I have a travel question. I'll be travelling from Bulgaria via Promachinas to Kavala. Which route is the best?

1. Promachinas - Serres - Drama - Ágios Athanásios- Kavala
2. Promachinas - Serres - Nea Zichni - Amphipoli (E 90/A2) - Kavala
3. Promachinas - Serres - Nea Zichni - Egnatia - Kavala
4. Promachinas - Serres - Lekothea - Eleftheroupouli - Kavala.

Thank you in advance!

I think option 2 will be faster although not the shortest - however there will be some roadworks on the Amfipoli - Kavala section of the A2 in the near future (please see www.egnatia.eu when it is time to travel).

Thank you. Since I'll be going to Kavala this weekend, I hope roadworks will not start that soon.

On the other hand if you travel trough Drama, you'll pass by Philippi - an interesting ancient city, the cradle of Christianity in Europe and a place where the Bulgarian kan Presian left an inscription...
