Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes, the island of Knights

Rhodes is the biggest island of the Dodecanese. It lies at the south-eastern corner of the Aegean, opposite the coast of Asia Minor, about 11 miles away. It has an area of 1398 square kilometres, being 79.7 km long and 38 km wide. The city of Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese Prefecture, a group of islands formerly known as the Southern Sporades. The name Dodecanese (Twelve Islands), although finally prevailing, does not correspond to the actual number of islands making up the Prefecture, there being many more than twelve. The medieval town of Rhodes, or the Old town as the locals call it, is a living monument. It is a well preserved centre where many Rhodians live and work. Various projects are currently being implemented and developed by the Ministry of Culture and the Municipality of Rhodes in aid of the restoration and improvement of the medieval town, which has been designated a world monument of architectural heritage by UNESCO.The fortress town was divided into two parts: The KOLLAKIO or KOLLAKO to the north, including the Street of Knights, leaders, the Palace of the Grand Master (Castello), the official churches of the Order, the Hospital (today’s museum), and other edifices. This area was separated from the rest of the town by inner fortifications, sections of which are still preserved. The BURGH or HORA to the south, with the old market (Socrates Street) and Turkish bazaar around Suleiman’s mosque, and other sites. Hora was the area for the bourgeois, and the Greeks, as well as other nationalities (Jewish, Turkish and others) each lived in their own districts. Dating from 1522 – the start of the Turkish occupation of Rhodes and their settlement within the fortress town – construction began on the newer districts beyond the walls, the so-called Marasia. These took their names from the major churches of the districts Ag. Anargyroi, Ag. Iannis, Ag. Anastasia, Metropolis, Ag. Giorgios Ano, Ag. Giorgios Kato or Kammenos (burned down), and Ag. Nikolaos. Greater Marasi, or Neohori, was developed by the Italians (1912-45) who also constructed the recent buildings of Mandraki city centre. They did not employ the island’s traditional style, but rather tried to echo the walls and fortifications, creating an architectural complex that impresses even now. These buildings included the Prefecture Administration building, the City Hall, the Port Authority, the Post Office, the Bank of Greece, the Aktaion, the New Market, the National Theatre, and the Hotel of the Roses, which now houses the Casino following its restoration (April, 1998). Adjacent to the Prefecture building is the Church of the Annunciation, modelled on the destroyed Knights’ church of Saint John. Opposite the National Theatre is the mosque of Murat-Reis. The visitor may see other buildings of the same period in the area of Neohori: the Teaching Academy of Rhodes, the Girls Orphanage, the Hospital, and others.

Kaimaktsalan Ski Centre

Kaimaktsalan Ski Centre

The Ski Centre of Kaimaktsalan got its name from the place name of the mountain which hosts it. The word Kaimaktsalan, according to an analysis of the scholar and professor, Mr N. Sidiropoulos, has Turkish roots and literally means the thief of creamy foam. Why this name was given is not accurately perceived and there are several interpretations based on what is transferred orally from generation to generation. Mount Kaimakatsalan or Voras is on the border with FYROM and its ridge is the line between the two countries. It is the third largest highest mountain in Greece with 2.524m., which is a top in the ski center. At the top, and on the border line, there is the church of Prophet Elias, which is a monument of the first World War. Most of its areas are proposed to be included in Nature 2000.At the foot of the mountain is Lake Vegoritis, one of the largest of Greece in scope and depth, that lies within the geographical borders of three prefectures - Pella, Florina, Kozani - and protected by the Ramshar Treaty. The view from the mountain is spectacular, as one can, with naked eye, observe the Thermaikos Gulf, the peak of Mount Olympus and of course the ski centre of 3-5 Pigadia of Naoussa. When the cloud is low, you feel that you are on an airplane and you see beneath the white quilt-forming clouds. The Ski Center at an altitude of2.050m., where is the main shelter, parking lots, ski schools, ski slopes for beginners, rental shops, vendors and the first lift, and it ends at 2.480m altitude, where is the arrival station of the highest lift of Greece.

Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos, one of the top tourist destinations

Mykonos or Myconos is a Greek island and one of the top international tourist destinations, famous around the world for its cosmopolitan character and its intense nightlife. The island is part of the Cyclades, lying between Tinos, Siros, Paros and Naxos. It spans an area of 105.183 square kilometers and rises at an elevation of 341 m at its highest point. The island is composed primarily of granite. It has little natural fresh water and relies on the desalination of sea water in order to meet its needs. There are 9,320 inhabitants most of whom live in the largest town, Mykonos, also known as Chora, i.e. the Town in Greek, a common denomination in Greece when the name of the island itself is the same as the name of the principal town, which lies on the west coast. Archaeological finds indicate that the Ionians settled on Mykonos in the early part of the 11th century BC. More recent discoveries have uncovered remnants in Ftelia beach from the Neolithic Kares tribe dating back to as far as 3000 BC. In Greek mythology, Mykonos was the location of the battle between Zeus and the Gigantes, and the island was named in honor of Apollo's grandson Mykons. During these ancient times, Mykonos, due to its proximity to the highly populated island of Delos, situated about 2km away, became very important as a supply island and possibly as a getaway location for Delian citizens.Today, Mykonos is one of the world's most cosmopolitan islands, having become increasingly popular especially during the last 50 years due to the numerous international jet set visitors that spend their holidays on the island. It is widely known for its extremely rich, diverse and often intense nightlife featured by a vast number of bars and nightclubs. Mykonos is also distinctive for its sandy beaches, offering everything from crystal clear waters, windsurfing potential, sea side tavernas, bars featuring 24hour loud music and even full nudity in some cases. Many Greek and international celebrities have summer residences in Mykonos and can often be seen walking the white washed roads or having dinner at a small street side table of an expensive restaurant or a taverna. The island is also one of the most upscale areas of Greece, and its real estate is very expensive. The popularity of the island has given rise to a wave of real estate development with the construction of private homes, villas, and hotels. This has raised some concerns that the island may be gradually losing its character. In order to prevent this, the island's zoning requires all new buildings to abide by the rules of the Cycladic architectural style.The nightlife of Mykonos is marketed as among the best in Europe.1. Mykonos is rated among the top clubbing destinations in the Mediterranean, along with Ibiza, Ayia Napa and Rimini. Mykonos also attracts world famous DJs to its clubs and beach bars, the most well known of which are Paradise, Super Paradise and Paranga. In addition, Mykonos is a gay friendly resort area during the summer, featuring several gay clubs.2. Mykonos nightlife focuses mainly on bars rather than clubs, yet a number of notable clubs can be found throughout the island.3. Additionally a number of non Greeks have recently taken up residency in Mykonos coming mainly from Albania and the Balkan republics which is said to have created an uptick in petty crime.

Alexandroupolis - A Hospitable City

Alexandroupolis is one of the newest Greek cities. It was founded by the Turks in 1876 as a trading post (despite the fact that it did not have a port) for loading goods on ships destined for Adrianoupolis, which was connected by railway. 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. Immediately, it took its current name in honor of the then King Alexander, who had visited it when it was just released. The ruins of ancient Traianoupolis are just ten minutes from the eastern exit of town. From the substantial administrative, civil and ecclesiastical center of Thrace, founded by Emperor Traianos in the second century BC, have left few buildings. The municipal park, the picturesque church of St. Eleftherios, the neoclassical building of the Pedagogical Academy and some old houses with typical architecture of the century make up the image of this city. In the old town hall is housed an archaeological collection. The Ecclesiastical Art Museum housed in the spiritual center of the metropolis. The folklore collection E. Philippidou will show weavings, embroidery, sarakatsani uniforms, etc. In the taverns of Alexandroupolis to eat fresh fish and abundant seafood.

Parga hotels holidays and accommodation in a superb summer destination

Parga hotels holidays and accommodation in a superb summer destination

Parga, 48 km south of Igoumenitsa and 77 km north of Preveza City, spills down to a rocky bay flanked by coves and islets. Add a Venetian kastro and the long pebble-and-sand Valtos Beach, and you have somewhere trully alluring. So it will come as no surprise that it's overrun with tourists in midsummer and that hotels, rooms and travel agents have swamped this once-serene fishing village.

Ithaca, an island tradition and history

Ithaca, an island tradition and history

Vathi, which is protected from the winds in the homonymous bay is the islands capital. At the southern part of the island, 5 klm. away from Vathi, the visitor arrives at Perahori, a mainland community. To the northern part of the island there are two roads. The first one goes through Anogi, a mountainous village on Mount Nirito whereas the second, parallel to the coast, goes through Lefki, picturesque village 13 klm. from Vathi.Ithaki has been inhabited since the Neolithic period (4000-3000 BC) and since the following millennium (3000-2000 BC) there are organized settlements on the island as witnessed by the ruins of settlements, streets and walls found in Pilikata area and the finds in Loizos Cave. The origins of the islands first inhabitants are unknown. In the beginning, the population was gathered at the northern part of the island and, around 1500 BC, people move towards Vathi. This transfer is the beginning of a prosperous period in the islands life. The state of Cephalines is founded, having Ithaki as capital and including the surrounding islands and part of the neighbouring mainland coast.
