When you think of Greece, the first thing that comes to mind is a country, surrounded by gorgeous beaches. White, warm sand with a gritty texture; and the large palm tree leaves make the perfect canopy for an afternoon nap.
That is hundred percent true. But there’s more to the beautiful country than its beaches. Known as heaven on earth, there is in fact a reason for this. It’s a country with a rich background, from famous philosophers. Greece created democracy, and the country is famous for its contribution to history.
So if you’re planning to visit Greece soon, it’s a good idea to look into the incredible sights it offers. Here are 5 places in Greece that will blow your mind.
Acropolis is the one of the greatest architectural structures in history. Its monuments are one of the classical symbols of civilization. You’ll forget about Italy’s Colosseum when visiting the ancient beauty.
Nea Kameni is a volcanic island. Sounds interesting already? Well, there’s more! The island hosts one of the few active volcanoes in the world. While the place has no habitation, and geologists say it will erupt within a few hundred years. It is a magnificent place. You must climb and travel a 130-meters gravel, but it’s worth reaching the top!
Crete, Chania: One of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You’ll forget the romantic air of Paris. Chania has beautiful architecture that captivates not just the eyes, but the soul. With well preserved architecture, from Turkish and Venetian times. In addition, if you’re a foodie, this is the place to get to the heart and soul of Greek food!
The gorgeous, ancient city has beautifully crafted architecture and landscapes. The scenery is something out of a movie; it is simply breath-taking.
Paxos is the hidden treasure of Greece. It’s the smallest island of the Ionian islands. But it’s heaven on earth. It’s how you would imagine ancient Greece to be: beautiful, rustic and charming!
The population is small but people are friendly. Just what you need to get away from the hustle and bustle of metropolitan cities!
