Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos, an island ideal for relaxing holidays

Kythnos probably took its name from the leader of Dryops and first inhabitant of the island, Kythnos, although his existence is doubtful. Another possibility is that its name comes from the stem "kyth", which derives from the verb keptho (hide) and refers to the place where one can hide, probably a place with woods, valleys, caves or mines. Recent excavations at Maroulas area have brought to light findings which prove that the island was inhabited during the Mesolithic Period, that is it may have been the oldest settlement of man on Cyclades. In the 13th century B.C., according to Herodotus, the Dryops emigrated to the island, traces of whom are the Cyclopean walls and the temples they have left behind. The Ions were the next to inhabit the island. In the Kinthean Republic, Aristotle refers to the ideal state those peoples had created.During the Persian Wars, Kythnos participates with one trireme and soon after it becomes member of the Athenian Alliance. Later it becomes part of the Roman state and afterwards it is included in the Aegean Theme by the Byzantines. During the Venetian domination it is conquered by the noble Marko Sanoudo and it is called Thermia, because of its hot (therma) spring waters. Then it comes under the rule of the Castelli family and later on the family of Gozadini. It remains under the rule of the family even after the looting of the pirate Barbarossa (1537), because of the peace treaty that was signed between the Turks and the Venetians, while during the Russian-Turkish war it is conquered by the Russians. In 1827, the island is called Kythnos again and takes part in the fight against the Turks. During the reign of Othona, rebels and political prisoners were exiled to Kythnos. In 1862 rebels from Syros came to the island to free the prisoners and clashed with the government’s army at the bay of St. Irini. The outcome of the clash was the repression of the rebels and the death of the rebels Leotsakos, Moraetinis, Scravelis and other exiles. Today, the people of Kythnos are in tourism business, without having abandoned other occupations such as agriculture and fishing. They offer to the visitor the perfect combination of the Cycladic scenery, the crystal clear waters, the local products (meat, dairy products, fruit, vegetables) and the fresh fish out of their own fishing boats.

Prespa, two beautiful lakes

Prespa, two beautiful lakes

A large number of Greek and foreign vacationers and tourists flock to the reputed Prespa Lakes. The latter are situated on the Greece - FYROM - Albania border, with an elevation of 850 m above sea level and a depth of 50 m. In many parts, the lake banks are steep rocky walls, while elsewhere they become almost flat with lush vegetation. Mikri (small) Prespa lies on the left side of the central road and is separated from Megali (big) Prespa by a narrow strip of land measuring 1,000 m.The entire area is worth visiting and has been designated as a national park. Mikri (small) Prespa, fringed with reed beds, provides shelter to pelicans, wild ducks and to many rare species of birds that attract the interest of international scientific institutes. Access to the Prespa Lakes is possible via two roads. One starts from Florina and the other ascends from Kastoria. They intersect at Prevali. 50 km from Florina near the village of Lemos Prespon the road forks again, one branch leading to Agios Germanos, the largest village in the Prespa area, and the other to the military post of Koula.

Aegina - A Jewel of the Saronic Gulf

Aegina - A Jewel of the Saronic Gulf

Because of the quantity of archeological findings, Aegina is undoubtedly a historical island with lots of sights to visit. During the day, you can swim, fish, give into sea sports, eat in taverns above the sea waves and in the evening you can go to the cafes, bars and night clubs of the island. Surely you will taste the famous peanuts of Aegina and the fresh fish and sea food.The island was first inhabited in the Neolithic Era. This is proven by the stone tools and many clay pots that were found in the settlements on Kolona hill and Messagros, which were established by former inhabitants from the Peloponnese. Around 2100 BC, at the time when the powerful first - Helladic centre of Lerna was in decline, a new population factor from the North appeared. These Middle Helladic people settled in Aigina which become a powerful outpost, defending Attica from sea raiders, but failing to develop into a naval power because of Minoan Cretes naval supremacy. The mountain - dwelling Dryopians, the predominant element in the population in the Late Helladic Era, founded a new settlement at Oros in Aigina and it is said that they have introduced the worship of Hellanian Zeus to southern Greece. In the end of 13th century BC, Aigina took part in the 10-year Trojan War, sending more ships than any other island of the Argosaronic Gulf. During the end of the Mycenean Era, Aigina, now great and powerful, was attacted by the Myceneans, who subjugated the inhabitants. In the middle of 7th century BC, the Calaurian Amphictyony, part of which became Aigina, appeared. At that time the island had close commercial ties with Epidaurus. Around 650 BC, the spark of development was given by the cut of the first silver coin in the Greek area, which established the standards. Aigina developed into a powerful economic and commercial center of Greece and was distinguished for its fine pottery. When, in the beginning of the 5th century BC, the Persian fleet sailed into the Aegean Sea, Aigina offered no resistance and voluntarily cooperated with the Persians, to prevent her commercial dealings with the ports of Asia Minor from being cut off. Aigina's rise was stopped when the Athenian fleet dominated the seas after the Persian Wars. When the Athenians learned, in 459 BC, that the Aiginetans wanted to ally themselves with the Corinthians, the two fleets fought at Cecryphaleia.

Piraeus, the largest port in Greece

Piraeus, the largest port in Greece

Piraeus is situated in the west of the district of Attica, about 5 km from the centre of Athens. Much of Athens's industry is located at Piraeus and the city is a major settlement. The port is a busy transit location for both goods and passengers. Ferries for the islands of Greece leave from the port and it is connected to Athens by the metro line.The area on which Piraeus stands has been inhabited since 2600 BC. The city was originally planned by the architect Ippodamos from Melos, and was built in the 5th century BC. Wall defences were built around the port 493–79 BC. Later, Pericles completed the fortification by building the Makra Teichi (the Long Walls) which protected both sides of the road between Athens and Piraeus. The area went into a state of decline from 395 BC onward, and was only revived in the early 19th century AD. In the intervening period the port was rarely used, except by pirates and invading enemies. The recovery of Piraeus began in 1829, and in 1834 the port was rebuilt using the original plans. During World War II, the port suffered extensive damage from both German, and subsequently Allied, bombing of the harbour and the boats moored in it. When the occupying German army left Piraeus they attempted to blow up the port on their retreat; resulting in its near-destruction. Beautiful Neoclassic buildings, hopefully some of them have been saved, are standing out with their prominence and brightness. Yet these ones among them, which have been reconditioned, are standing firm, proud like, ringed with the glamour of another past. The most distinguished among them is the Municipal Theatre of Piraeus, built in 1884, designed by John Lazarides. It is really an architectural jewel of Piraeus. The building of Ernest Chiller (German architect), built in 1876 which is found at Alexandra square, the Chatzikyriakio orphanage for girls, built in 1883, the N.A.T. office building, the Nursing House of Piraeus, the old Post Office, the building of Metro Station, the summer resort of drink maker Metaxa, the building of the French institute (home of C. Strigos) and a lot of other old buildings at Kastella.
