Komotini today, is a multicultural city consisting of local Greeks, Greek descendants of refugees from Central Asia and Eastern Thrace, Muslims (Roma and Pomaks) and Armenians. It is a magical crossroads, where the past and the present coexist uniquely.

The centre of the city is dominated by the Clock Tower, built in 1884, during the reign of Sultan Abdul Hamid. In the 1950s architectural interventions were made and it took its current form. Behind the tower rises the minaret of the Yeni Mosque, from the balcony of which the muezzin invites the followers of Islam to prayer. The interior of the Yeni Mosque is open to visitors, as long as they follow certain formal rules, such as taking off their shoes, etc.
