Cuprus - part 3

Hello everybody!

How are you?
Today I'll finish my description of Cyprus. I fell in love with this place and I can't wait to see Cyprus in september!

Petra Tou Romiou 

It's the region of Pafos whuch I've described last time. So beautiful scenery about this place was an inspiration for artists. There is a turquoise water and rocks off the coast. A famous attraction for tourists is Aphrodite's Rock, Greek goddess of love, known from Greek mythology.




Polis Beach

It's a calmer beach than the majority of them and so much less busy. It's a good place for water sports or walks at sunset time.



Limassol

It's a city on the southern coast of Cyprus. Limassol is also the second largest urban area in Cyprus. This city has many attractions for tourists, just like castles, museums, sculptures or gardens.
The medieval castle who was built by Byzantines was used as a prison in the past. Nowadays, it is a medieval museum with some exhibits, just like painting, cannons, statues or wood carvings.
There is also The Archeological Museum with a collection of antiquities. We can find there also coins, gold jewellery, sculptures, vases and many others.
Public Garden, which on the coastal road, has a lot of vegetation, just like cypresses, pine or eucalyptus trees. There is also a zoo with deers, lions, tigers, pelicans or birds. We can see also a natural history museum.
Limassol is famous of its festivals, for example Carnival or Wine Festival.



Medieval Castle


That's all about Cyprus from me. Hope it'll be interesting for you. :)

See you!

Today's second part of my description of Cyprus. I chose this place because I'm going to go there in september and I'm so excited about that. So, let's explore the world! :)

Fig Tree Bay

One of the most beautiful. Crystal clean water, perfect fot diving lovers, as well families with children. Near to this beach there is an island with a stony coast, in contrast to the beach. It's near to the place called Protaras. Tourism is very well-developed, it's also a great place for water sports lovers.



Protaras


Governor's Beach

Governor's Beach is situated between Limassol and Larnaca. This place is famous of wonderful landscapes. There we can meet different animals on the beach. Tourism is well-developed, there are many restaurants. There we can also practice windsurfing, snorkel, swim with the boat and angle.





Pafos

The most characteristic for this place are the water animals - very rare green turtles.

Hello!

What’s up? As I said last time, I have prepared something special for you! It’s Cyprus J I think it’s one of the most wonderful places in the world. Today I would like to describe some of those breath-taking beaches! So, let’s start J

Cyprus is an Island country in the Eastern Mediterranean, located south of Turkey and north of Egypt. It is a perfect place for those people who want to chill out, relax, sunbathe and just forget about reality. The water is the sea is very clean and landscapes full of beauty. In addition, rainy days are very rare in summer.
The beach is not only a place to sunbathe and lie down, it is also a great place to do many water sports, just like windsurfing, kitesurfing, yachting or diving.
The beaches situated on the eastern side are better for diving amateurs because of its crystal clean and turquiose water.
The beaches situated on the western side are less busy, but also clean and attractive – that’s the best side for tourists who wants to relax in a calm place who don’t like any clamours or noises.



Larnaca – Finikoudes

Larnaka is a city famous of palms, located on the southern coast of Cyprus. It’s a third-largest city in the country, after Nicosia and Limassol.
A sand on Finikoudes beach is grey and the water is clean and warm. In general, that beach is long and large. We can borrow some sport equipment, go to the restaurant or cafe. This beach i salso tailored to disabled people.



Finikoudes

Finokoudes

Ayia Nappa
It’s a resort with sandy beaches. It’s a perfect place for young people because it’s a place that never sleeps! Beaches are also trimmed, breadth of restaurants, bars, tavern and discotheques. It’s a paradise for tourists. The most beautiful beach is Nissi Beach, as tourists say.






That’s all for today but I haven’t finished yet!

See you,

Thessaloniki

It's a second-largest city in Greece and a capital city of Macedonia. Architecture and landscapes in Thessaloniki are different than in Athens. In Thessaloniki is a quarter called Kastra, with monuments and alleys which had been built in art deco style. There are also many churches of XV century which are Byzantines monuments.



Peloponnese

It's a peninsula and region in southern Greece.  It is a magical region with wonderful landscapes. There we can find an Arcade - the land of eternal happiness. Peloponnese is a perfect place for calm and relaxing holidays, far from clamour. It's also a good choice for tourists who like sightseeing. We can visit there the most famous archeologically monuments, just like Olympia, Mycenae, Epidauros, Corinth or Mistras. In addition, Peloponnese is an area covered by mediterranean plants, famous of olive, grapevines and citrus fruits cultivation. There are also sandy beaches, crystal clear water, wild mountains and picturesque valleys. Sounds great! :)

Kos is one of the most beautiful Greek island which is a part of Dodecanese island. There are picturesque and charming villages, lively and colourful Kos town, wide bays with crystal clear water, white beaches, green hills or fertile valleys.

Greece - part 3

Hi everybody!

What's up?

Today I'll continue my description of Greece - sunny and full of attractions country, perfect for every tourist :)

Zakynthos


Zakynthos is a greek island called a flower of the West. This island enraptures us with its beauty, charming bays, crystal clear and turquoise sea, as well a huge number of flowers and citrus trees. I think I fell in love with this place although I've never been there yet!



Chalkidiki Penisula


One of the most beautiful penisulas in Europe which is also situated in interesting way. It's a connection of three worlds - Kassandra - tourist camp, Sithonia - a world of nature and Athos - oasis of calm and Monk's land (which I've described before). This penisula is famous of sansy beatches and rocky shores, That all in one places gives us a great view and let us find some calm and charming corners.





Olimp


Who didn't hear about it? The highest, the most magical and charming mountain massif in Greece. A lot of very high mountains, it takes at least 2-3 days to sightsee Olimp area. If you want to go to those mountains, you have be well-equipped with solid shoes or warm clothes but you don't have to be a climber to go there.
In greek mythology Olimp mountain was the headquarters of greek gods with the most important one - Zeus - as everybody knows. I think it would be amazing to see Olimp and conquer one of those mountains.




That's all for today. And, of course, I will continue this tour of Greece!

See ya!

Greece - part 2

Hello again! 

Today I’ll continue my description of the best places in Greece. So let’s start! 

Crete

An Island full of small, narrow and sandy beaches which are creating a beautiful scenery – that’s Crete! A West side of Crete is full of attractions for tourists. We can visit a lovely city – Chania – situated in full of mediterranean landscapes. That all creates a perfect place to relax. Off the Chania’s coast we can find well-known touristic resorts like Platanias or Agia Marina. Next to Chania there is another city which is also very popular on Crete is Rethymnon. When you are on Crete – you absolutely have to go there. Beyond lovely resorts, Crete offers also the most beautiful beaches in Balos and Elafonissi.


Crete

Balos

Elafonissi


Santorini

Santorini is a volcanic Island on The Aegan Sea which with a few smaller islands creates a small archipelago. Colourful and towering cliffs are making Santorini very charming. There are also many white buildings which are creating an amazing landscape – auster with great panoramas, black or red beaches and volcanic sand – that all contrasts with wonderful blue sea. It sounds incredibly, isn’t it? 💗



Meteors

One of the most wonderful places in the world. On the peaks of sandstone we can see monasteries. All in all, there are 24 monasteries, everyone on a different rock. Nowadays, only six of them are peopleed and monastic life is going on. Four of them are for men and two for women. Tourists can visit meteors thanks to the stairs and jetties.



As you can see, Greece is full of attractions and full of beauty. I think I don't have to add anything else.  But I haven’t finished yet! That's all for today, but my description of Greece is not finished yet!

See you,

J.
