Kavala, a city that can satisfy the most demanding visitor

Kavala, a city that can satisfy the most demanding visitor

This historical, amazing city located like an amphitheater by the sea, combines all the things that could satisfy the most demanding visitor: mountains and sea, picturesque scenery and modern life, archaeological sightseeing, exciting excursions, cultural activities and tranquillity within nature... That is Kavala! It takes about 2 hours (165kms) to reach it by car from Thessaloniki. It also takes the same time from here to the last European City to the east, Alexandroupolis (174kms).Easily accessible, by all means, air, sea and land, Kavala becomes the perfect destination with its frequent, comfortable communications with the islands of the Aegean Sea, the rest of Greece and Europe. There are international charter flights too, departing from the modern airport, situated 20km outside the city and considered as one of the safest in the Balkans. In Kavala there are available all kinds of public services (governmental services, banks, hospitals, etc.) as well as the characteristic hospitable spirit of its 60.000 inhabitants! Kavala’s journey through history starts approximately in the Homeric era. Thanks to its position, it has always been the focus of attention. Neapolis (new city) was the original name of the city (7th century BC) which was an alien of Athens at the time of Pericles (5th century BC). It was also a very important center during the Macedonian Age. Neapolis was the very first place St. Paul stepped on European land when he came here to preach the Holy Bible and spread the Christian religion. For this reason, during the Byzantine time it was renamed Christoupolis. Its port was an important commercial location, which attracted the interest of the Romans and became the cause of destructive attacks by Goths, Huns, Normans and Bulgarians. During the 15th century it falls into the hands of Turks and remains occupied up to the beginning of the 20th century. After its liberation it becomes a modern city.

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.

Milos, the island of Aphrodite

Milos, the island of Aphrodite

The civilization of Milos is considered to be as ancient as that of Crete and spans a period of at least 5000 years. Its fame spread throughout the civilized world thanks to the masterpiece of the Aphrodite of Milos (Venus de Milo), a statue found buried on the island in the 19th century (1820) and is now in the Louvre Museum in Paris. Around 5000 BC, Flakopi, the oldest settlement on the island was in existence between 4000 and 5000 BC.The settlement was destroyed twice by invaders and was finally rebuilt in 800 BC in a different style. The ability to take advantage of the various mineral ores gave the inhabitants a plethora of tools having incredible precision for those years. Flakopis existence is situated between the Neolithic and Iron ages as many recent archaeological excavations have determined. The town was finally burnt down. The end of Flakopi came at around the same time as the Mycenaean civilization was flourishing elsewhere. It was around 1000 BC and at that time the Dorian invaders arrived on the island. In fact, Thucydides reported in one of his books that it was for about 700 years that the Dorians made Milos their home. Milos became a center for artistic endeavor as shown by the wonderful statue of Aphrodite of Milos created around 400 BC.

Andros - The Story of a multifaceted island

Andros - The Story of a multifaceted island

Τhe name of the island most probably originates from General Andros from Crete, legendary colonizer of the Minoan times. Archeological excavations prove the existence of developed settlements, dating back to Mycenaean times or even earlier. The island becomes historically known during the Geometric period (9th-7th century B.C.), as it is proved by traces of a settlement found in Zagora, at the south-western part of the island, close to Zaganiari. The capital of Andros island, during the classical times, was Paleopoli. The prosperity during that period is shown by the big production of coins. Relevant findings together with Hermes of Andros statue are exhibited in the Archeological Museum in Hora. In 7th century B.C. Andros island participated with Chalkideans to the colonization of Chalkidiki and coastal areas of Thrace in northern Greece.Andros, following with the rest Aegean islands the fate of continental Greece, consecutively fell under Roman, Frank and Ottoman occupation. Dating back to 11th century, Byzantine style churches are found around the island, like Taxiarchis in Ipsilou, Melida and Messaria and Kimisi Theotokou (Assumption) in Mesathouri. In the 14th century, the "Agias Monastery" (Zoodochos Pigi) was built near Batsi, while Agios Nikolaos monastery was founded in 1560 and rebuilt in 18th century. Panachrantou monastery was founded in mid-17th century. At Agia Triada (Holy Trinity) in Korthi, a school has been established in 1813, before the Greek War of Independence against the Ottomans. It was founded by Samuel Plasimis and it incorporates a separate building, serving as the teachers house and library. On May 10th, 1821, Theofilos Kairis declared the War of Independence, thus marking the starting point of the islands recent history, during which Andros reached the peak of its economic prosperity, thanks to its ships. It is worth noting that Andriot Dimitris Moraitis initiated Greece-North America line in the beginning of the 20th century, while Andros was in 1939 second to Piraeus regarding ship registration.
