Five reasons to visit Greece
is a country with many contributions to modern civilization, perhaps more
than any country.
It is the cradle of democracy, the cradle of the Olympic Games
and the home of many of the most brilliant philosophers, scientists, writers
and artists ever produced, such as Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Euclides, Archimedes,
Euripides, and Praxiteles.
Of course, most of these contributions may not be real. However,
that can only be seen or more experienced when visiting Greece.
Below we see five important reasons to visit this country
located on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea.
1. Ancient Monuments
The ancient city of Athens is one of the most powerful of
its time and although Athens has changed a lot over the centuries, this city
still has the ruins of many ancient monuments reminiscent of His Majesty-that
all must be-see the attraction when visiting Greece.
The most popular, of course, can be found on the Acropolis,
such as the Parthenon, the Profiles and the temple of the Erectheion, Athena
Nike, while others, such as the impressive temple of Olympian Zeus, the Temple
of Poseidon, the necropolis of Kerameikos and the theatre of Dionysus is distributed
all over the city.
In addition to the ancient monuments of Athens, you will also
find the same city by shooting in another city, such as the Demeter Temple
in Naxos, the temple of Apollo in Gortyna and Knossos Palace and Delphi in
Crete. In fact, wherever you go in Greece, you will definitely see an amazing
archeological site nearby.
There is a lot of very beautiful archaeological museum in
all of Greece as well, to help you learn more about the history and culture
of the ancients, such as the National Archaeological Museum of Athens, which
is the largest museum in Greece, the Delphi Museum, the prehistoric Thera
Museum and Heraklion. The museum, which contains artifacts, in particular
statues and sculptures, of the nearby archeological site.
2. Beautiful beaches
One of the reasons why Greece is considered a romantic destination
is because it has a long coastline with idyllic beaches, most of which offer
white sand and crystalline waters that are hot, while others taken by dramatic
cliffs and villas.
Many of them are Blue Flag beach, also the best of Kefalonia
and Zakynthos, while naturism is acceptable almost everywhere, but mostly
at the Banana beach in Skiathos and you are in Lesvos beach. There are a lot
of dive sites are nice, and some sea caves to explore.
Greece is often described as healthy food, so make sure you
get crowded while visiting Greece. This is because olives and olive oil are
used a lot, especially planted and produced in Kalamata and Crete.
There are plenty of salad vegetable dishes, such as Greece,
baked beans, and bread pudding, although meat dishes such as roast lamb in
the oven, gyros (grilled meats) and Souvlaki (meat skewers) are also popular.
As for the desserts, many have made with walnuts and honey,
the most popular are baklava, while wine is the most common beverage. In fact,
there are some who say that wine comes from Greece.
4. Greece per night
Celebrating the night away is another reason to visit Greece.
In fact, Greece is famous for its vibrant nightlife, especially in the capital,
Athens, and on the island of Mykonos, Skiathos, and Corfu, Samos, where the
party can take until seven in the morning.
During the summer, most of the party was held on the boardwalk,
where you can start the night with a walk and close it watching a beautiful
sunrise ... If you're still at your feet, that's how it is.
5. Shooting locations in Greece
With beautiful scenery, it is not surprising if the filming
teams and celebrities who visit Greece to film them, and if you are lucky,
could catch it successfully in the middle of filming. Don't be disappointed
if this is not the case, because there are still many places to shoot you
can visit the monastery of Aghia Triatha in the meteors were the scenes of
the Bond movie "For Your Eyes as" progress or Skopelos, where several
scenes of Mamma Mia played.
