Greece. Itineraies, routes, information

It’s impossible to overestimate the importance of Greece in world history – it’s the cradle of Western civilization and philosophy, the Motherland of democracy, and the birthplace of the Olympic Games and theatre. Rich cultural heritage together with Mediterranean climate and incomparable nature made this corner of Eastern Europe one of the most popular tourist destinations. Yachtsmen are no exception; numerous Greek islands have become a delight for their hearts and a joy for their eyes. The Dodecanese, the Cyclades, the Sporades, the Ionian Islands, the Aegean Islands, Crete – there are more than two thousand islands here, small and big, and each of them is remarkable for something. It’s worth going ashore to see the Acropolis of Athens, the Palace of Knossos, the ancient theatre in Epidaurus, the Delos Terrace of the Lions, the Temple of Poseidon, and Santorini Oia village. And how beautiful are the beaches here! Navajo Bay, Myrtos, Elafonisos, Porto Katsiki, Sidari, Balos – you cannot find such splendid places anywhere else.


Popular sights

Athens
Athens is consistently ranked as one of the top must-see cities of the world. Capital of Greece, birthplace of democracy, open-air museum, cradle of ancient culture – the city has no shortage of titles and admiring epithets. Thousands of years of history have made their mark on the architectural look of the city, making it a place of truly unique beauty. While all of Athens’ districts are inviting, visitors head straight for the Acropolis to see with their own eyes the Parthenon, the Erechtheion with its famous Caryatid sculptures, the temple of Athena Nike, and the Theater of Dionysus. An exhaustive exposition is offered by the city’s many museums: the National Archeological, the Byzantine, the Theatrical, the Acropolis, the Ancient Agora, the Cycladic Art, and others. The second-most popular tourist draw is the colourful district of Plaka. Its ancient buildings have been transformed into souvenir stalls, cafes, bars and restaurants. Getting lost in the maze of Plaka’s streets is easy to do, so it’s best to regain your bearings by looking at the Wind Tower, and to stop by the ruins of the Temple of Olympian Zeus and Hadrian’s Gate. Arriving in Athens, yachtsmen can’t help but visit Piraeus – the third-largest city in Greece and the country’s biggest port. Although the locals don’t consider themselves Athenians, Piraeus is actually part of the capital, since it’s impossible to precisely delineate the boundary separating the two cities. Here, the bustle of harbour life blends seamlessly with official museums, archaeological landmarks, and even international film festivals.
