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.

Syros, an ideal place

Syros, an ideal place

The seafaring town! A significant presence in the Aegean. Ermoupoli was born and forged in the flames of the National Revolution of 1821 from refugees who fled Chios, Psara, Kydonia, Kassos, etc., when extensive massacres were perpetrated by the Turks. The Aegean was shocked with the cries of uprooted people looking for a new home. And then, the best shelter was found. Syros! It was the ideal place.The island had nοt been touched by war. It was free and protected by a great European power, France. The first refugees were dirt poor and dressed in rags, but they were rich in experience and knowledge. Very soon, alreadγ ίn the years of Capodistria, the first Governor of Greece, the new town begins a peaceful and productive revolution that will lead it to prosperity. The town was dedicated to Hermes, the god of gainful commerce. Ιη the 19th century the town became the most important commercial and shipping centre of liberated Greece. "Ιn Ermoupolis, Greece was reborn..." Eleftherios Venizelos once said. The economic prosperity of Ermoupoli was accompanied by social evolution and cultural flowering. In the city of Kerdood and Scholarly Hermes as well, a genuine Greek urban class was created for the first time. It generated a lively social and literary activity. Cultural centres, theatres, concert halls, clubs, charitable institutions, printing shops, libraries and a particularly diverse press pushed Ermoupolis forward. The town's name went beyond the boundaries of the Aegean and was heard in the salons of Europe. The radiance of the city's wealth and spirit created the first tourist flow towards Greece.

The traveler, however, is compensated when reaches the lake edge when enjoying a landscape of incomparable beauty, habitat and wetland. The lake lies at an altitude of 1000 meters and bears the name of Nicholas Plastiras, a great military and political figure, who in 1925 conceived the idea of diverting the river Megdovas and to build a dam in the area. The idea finally materialized after his death and was completed in 1959. The lake spread in the plateau of Nevropolis creating one of the largest artificial lakes in Greece. Around the Lake, there are fourteen villages, giving the traveler a high degree of alternative destinations and different accommodations. The Mesenikolas is the first village leaving behind Karditsa. It's built at an altitude of 700m. and famous for its wine and raki its residents offer. It is worth visiting the church of the Life Giving Fountain with murals of 1646 east of the village. Two kilometers to the north at an altitude of 800m. is the Morfovouni, hometown of Nikolaos Plastiras, with stunning views of the plain of Thessaly.

The village of Fylakti is at an altitude of 1200m. on the steep slopes of Mount Voutsinaki overlooking a dense forest. The road ends at Fylakti and so we turn back to Pezoula and at the junction that will lead us to Neraida at an altitude of 1120m. in an area full of chestnut trees and with magnificent views of the lake. Here you can take lots of pictures for your album. The area had been previously resort of the inhabitants of Karditsa. A small road from Neraida leads to a small ski resort at an altitude of 1550m. Then, we head for the largest and most organized tourist village in the area, Neochori, which lies on a slope and has the best view of the lake. In Neochori, it worths visiting the botanical garden that includes plants that make up the ecosystem of the region. The last stop on your journey is the dam you will find a few kilometers from Neochori and after Belokomiti. If you visit the lake be sure to see up close the dam. You will admire the beauty of the landscape and, if you want, you can complete the cycle route to the villages Moucha, Kastania, Lampero, St. Athanasius and Moschato.

Lemnos, the island of Hephaestus

Lemnos, the island of Hephaestus

According to the mythology, the Jupiter in his conflict with the Ira, flew his son Ifaistos from Olympus mountain in the ground of Limnos. Ifaistos installed there his laboratory and taught the art of metallurgy in the residents of the island. Another important fable of the island refers to the first king of Lemnos, Thoas. Thoas, son of god Dionyssos and Ariadnis, married to Mirina from Iolkos and had a daughter named Ipsipili. In his years, the women of island neglected the adoration of Venus so she punished them with an intolerable bodily stench. Their spouses brought concubines from the Thrace and their women for revenge killed all men by throwing them from the cape Petasos. When the anger of Venus calmed down, Jason with his Argonauts came to the woman-handled island.Here in Anemoessa Limnos, the Queen Ipsipili entertained the Argonauts, and in order to honor them she set up prizes and organized games. The first Demigods Pentathletes were Telamonas, Lygkeas, Zitis, Kalahis and Pileas. Pentathlon became an Olympic Sport since 708 BC in the 18th Olympic Games. The unique place of the island in the North-East Aegean opposite Ellispontos determined his historical course. Limnos was colonized occasionally by Sinties, Kares, Cretes, Minies and Pelasgous. The archaeological hoe determines the way that the island had been populated since middle Neolithic Age. The most important prehistoric settlement is Poliochni. It was founded at 4th millennium BC and developed into a fortified state – the oldest perhaps in Europe – with urban structure and important culture, with the first democratic chamber of deputies. In Poliochni, on September 17 1994, the agents of Aegean, invited by the Ministry of Culture, 70 personalities from a lot of countries of the world, persons of science, Politics, Actors, Philosophers, men of Art and Intellect, decided and signed the Statement of Poliochni, gazing the immense light blue sea and they nominated the Archipelago of Aegean as Cultural Park of Europe. Limnos, as well as the neighbouring Samothrace, is connected with the mystic adoration of Kaveires, sons of Hephaestus. Remains of Kaveires’s holy have been found in Northeast Island. Few kilometres southern has been discovered Hephaestia, a city dedicated to Hephaestus that flourished in 5th century BC.
