Mytilene

Mytilene

Mytilini got her name by one of Makaros daughters, the island's first colonist. The Municipality of Mytilini consists of the villages Agia Marina, Taxiarhes, Loutra, Panagiouda, Moria, Alyfanta, Afalonas, Pamphila and the city of Mytilini. It is about 188 miles from Piraeus and it has about 25000 inhabitants. Impressive buildings of a neo-classic architecture, historical monuments, unique archaeological treasures, like the mosaic-works found at Menandros House (exhibited now at the Archaeological Museum) and the natural hot springs compose a rich cultural context.The town's foundations are extended over seven adjoining hills. The centre of the town is divided into three main parts: Kioski, which is a very beautiful suburb, the central old neighbourhoods and the west neighbourhoods. The efforts of the authorities to reconstruct the centre of the town and to adapt the needs of the Municipality of Mytilini to the demands of the new century are remarkable. Kioski, the old aristocratic suburb of Mytilini where we can find the new Archaeological Museum, is not far away from the Enetic Castle. The Castle was situated on the isolated, by the channel of Euripus, part of Mytilini and seemed like a small island. The channel of Euripus, along which there were a lot of bridges, had been uniting, in the past, the south port to the north port dividing, this way, Mytilini in two parts. At Kioski there are still authentic mansions of a traditional Lesbian architecture. The main street that goes through Kioski leads to the north port, where we can see the shattered quay and other ruins of the past. In a small distance from there, there were found ancient ruins and the entrance of the channel that was mentioned above. Important ruins of ancient and roman structures are also discovered in the north part of Mytilini.

Alonissos - The Story of a Βeautiful island

Alonissos - The Story of a Βeautiful island

Today Alonissos took this name in the early years of the liberation of Greece and is not the same as the ancient Alonissos. The island in ancient times was called Ikos, while the neiborhood island  to the north, Kyra Panagia, was probably called Alonissos by the ancient Greeks. The island's history is lost in the Paleolithic era, when it is probable that it was connected to the other islands and Thessaly. Tradition says that Cretans led by the mythical hero Stafilos made colonies in Peparithos (current Skopelos) and Iko. This colonisation became in the 16th century BC during the Minoan naval in the Aegean Sea. In that time, begins the cultivation of olives and vines. The Minoan colony takes later a Mycenaean character. The Mycenaean city is located in today Kokkinokastro, on the east coast of the island. At the end of the Mycenaean era, on the island come the father of Achilles, Peleus, and stays until the end of his life. According to tradition, in the island was found the tomb of Peleus. Historically, however, it is clear that in the geometric times is found Iko under the authority of Dolopes. The Dolopes appeared to be a part of the great race of the Pelasgians. After a period of time, they became dangerous and evil pirates of the Aegean. To deal with them, later, the Athenian fleet under the command of Cimon moved to the island, who routed them and annexed the islands to Athens. Thus, in 476 BC, the island joins the first Athenian Alliance. In the classical era, Ikos must have two cities (the geographer Skylax, 5th century BC, called it dipolin). At that time the island is famous for the cultivation of vines and fine wine. The wine was exported in jars, which are one of the two handles bearing the inscription IKION. At this time it appears that the location of the island is very important. This is confirmed by the number of ancient shipwrecks, which have been identified in the region. This important position has made the island base of the Athenian fleet struggles against Philip. In 190 BC the island was conquered by the Roman fleet. We have almost no information for the history of Iko until the capture of Constantinople by the Franks in 1204 AD, when the island and the adjacent islands came into possession of the Franks. Along with Skopelos, Alonissos is an alternating conquerors. After the conquest of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453, the islands were obtained by the Venetians. They remained Venetian until 1538, when the Turkish fleet under Barbarossa Chairedin imposed on the Turkish authorities. During the revolution of 1821 and the first years of liberalization of the Greek nation, the Greeks resorted to Alonissos from various parts of Greece. They, along with the natives of the island, compose the present population of Alonissos.

Argolida - Its rich History

Argolida - Its rich History

Argolida was inhabited in the Mesolithic Era (8000 BC) and it was one of the most crucial centers in Peloponnese. During the Neolithic Era, many significant settlements (Lerna, Tirintha, Mikines) were founded whereas in the period of the Brass the whole area flourished and many centers were developed (Midea, Asini, Tirintha, Prosimna). Among them, Mikines was the most glorious one and it gave its name to one of the most splendid cultural periods of the ancient times, the Mikinean period. The whole area was disordered in the 12th century BC by various movements of immigration. As a result, Argos was subjected to Dories it became a Doric center and gradually it subjected other Argolic towns.In the Archaic and in the classical period, there was a common sanctuary in Argolida Ireo whereas in the Hellenistic years the temple of Asklipios in Epidavros became very significant. In 146 BC, the city was conquered by the Romans and it declined. The invasions by Erouloi (267 AD) and by Goth (395 AD) disordered the area for one more time. During the Byzantine rule, Argolida belonged to the authorities of Peloponnese and it was greatly developed. At the beginning of the 13th century it subdued to the Francs and it belonged to Otto de la Ros master of Athens. For certain short periods of time it belonged to the Venetians and finally it subjected to the Turkish (1540). In the Revolution of 1821, its residents participated in some of the greatest military enterprises that took place here. Nafplio had become the temporary basis of the revolutionary government and the capital of the newborn Greek state (1828) until 1834 when Athens became the new capital. Today Argolida is one of the most fertile areas in Greece and a major tourist center.

It took the name Dedeagats, by the name of a Turkish monk who had been buried at that point. Russians engineers drew up the street plan in 1877, when the region was occupied by Russia, in the Russian-Turkish war. The Town, who had collected many Greek residents, came to Greece with the rest of Thrace, of ordering the Treaty of Sevres.

Drama, a city with long history

Drama, a city with long history

The natural wealth of the city in plenty of running water did not leave anyone unmoved by his passage from this area. Both prehistoric man and one of the historical years organized their lives around the water, making the area of water a connecting factor of the long presence of man in the modern city. The earliest permanent human settlement on the site of present city of Drama was identified after a systematic excavation of the prehistoric settlement of the "Arcadian", south of the park of Saint Barbara. The Neolithic settlement is the first residential heart of the city since the mid-6th millennium BC.Although Drama, in the mid-19th century, is the Capital of a big region, where there axist the administrative center, the army and the courts, it can not compete with the port of Kavala, a hub of the region. Significant changes are made to the city after 1870, when the production and the trade in tobacco cause population growth and strengthening of the commercial traffic. The operation of the railway station by 1895 and the improval of the road network to the port of Kavala connect Drama with the major centers of the empire and maritime trade routes. Large tobacco firms establish branches in Drama, built warehouses, operate banking offices, and England opens consulate in the city. Soon, new neighborhoods are created around the waters of Santa Barbara and west of the walled area to meet the needs of 6000-7000 residents. The new residents, Muslims, Christians and Jews, constitute separate residential cores according to the standards of the Ottoman period. Christians, who constantly reinforced with families from Western Macedonia and in particular Epirus, number at least 200 families in 1880, located within the old walls and south of this area in Santa Barbara. Muslims are located west of the market and settling Jews in the area of the waters of Santa Barbara. The new public buildings of the city and the private residences reflect the economic strength and influence of European standards. The Greek community differs, from 1870 until the liberation, for the economic development, the establishment of Educational Associations, the rebuilding of schools and the charity associations. In the early 20th century, When the population is already 14,000 people and the economic progress is continuing, sporadic violence of an undeclared war are being recorded, the Makedonian race. The Metropolitan Chrysostomos of Drama, the elders and the people of the town organize the defense of the Greek community.
