Its capital is Heraklion, the largest city on the island. The coast and the mountainous parts of the prefecture, are inhabited from prehistoric times to today. For this, the area is considered to be one of the richest sites in Crete, with the magnificent Minoan palaces at Knossos, Phaistos, Malia and Heraklion.

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.

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos - The Island of

Amorgos means fresh air, sun, smell from the herbs and an endless view of the bright blue Aegean Sea. You can have this view from almost every single point of your route. Things to be taken into consideration it was not until the mid 1990s that the first proper roads were constructed. These are; a) From Chora to Arkesini southwards, and b) from Chora to Egiali northwards. Before then, the car as a means of transport was of little importance. Donkeys used to be the essential means of transport by land and therefore, a well-designed "system" of cobbled paths used to cross the island and guarantee the transportation of goods to the villages. Despite the fact that nowadays the car has already "invaded" the island, Amorgos remains peaceful and quiet. The traditional paths have mostly been preserved, providing us with amazing opportunities of exploring the island. Even today, it is possible to meet donkeys carrying heavy loads of fresh goat milk from the fields to the villages. It is at this specific moment that time seems to have stopped for a while and an idea of how hard life in Amorgos used to be can be gained. With an altitude of nearly 850 meters, Amorgos offers a variety of different possibilities of exploration. Considering that all this hypsometrical scale is actually completed within a short distance starting from the shore, it is easily understood that certain requirements must be met by anyone attempting such a tour. On the ridges the sun is really merciless. On the high peaks, the whole area can be covered by dense fog within a few minutes, while strong winds usually blow. These hard conditions should not be underestimated in any case. Drinkable water, suitable shoes and a special jacket are necessary. Even in the marked routes, suitable shoes should be worn and drinkable water should be brought along.Below are presented many routes for rambling over the island. Four of these routes go through marked paths (red and white signs with numbers). The "Royal Route" is the route 1, which starts from Chora, goes past the Monastery of Hozoviotissa and continues towards Egiali. This is distance of nearly 16 Kms along the central ridge of the island. It is an unforgettable trip with a view of Naxos, the Small Eastern Cyclades and Ikaria. The route 4 is also wonderful. Starting at Egiali and finishing at Egiali as well, it goes round the whole valley behind the Bay of Egiali. This route goes past the fascinating villages Tholaria and Lagada. The walking time mentioned for each route concerns walkers with medium training and experience. Apart from the routes described below, there are also many other possibilities of exploring the island. For example, there is the route to the high peak of Profitis Helias at Chora (almost 700 meters altitude) or the route to the vertical cliff of Ancient Arkesini in the southern part of the island. There is also the route to the Mountain Korakas, which is the highest mountain of the region. A lot of interesting opportunities for exploration can be found in the Bay of Egiali in the north of the island, such as the remote small bays of Megali Vlichada and Mikri Vlichada which are also suitable for swimming. Whichever route you choose, rambling round Amorgos is a celebration for all the senses.

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.
