History

Arzos was ruled by the Ottoman Empire until the Balkan Wars of 1913, instead of Greece, it joined Bulgaria since it was invaded by them and administered until the Greco-Turkish War which finally ceded to Greece mainly without any battles. During the Catastrophe, refugees arrived from the east and forms a majority of the population today. After World War II and the Greek Civil War, many of its buildings were rebuilt. Some of its residents moved to other parts of Greece and the world. Its population lost by about two thirds of the 1981 population that made the village lost the most population in Thrace. Much of the population left for larger towns and cities as well as its suburbs around Greece and other parts of the world. Arzos has a nearby tomb dating back to the 4th century BC.
