Greece is one of the most important tourist destinations in the world. Greece is the ideal destination for summer holidays, cultural and urban tourism.
Greece is coastal country with extremely bigger and longer coast area than it is area of the country in total. At the same time, the Greek coast is one of the three most jagged coastline in the world (just nex to Croatian and Norway). It is famous for its many islands, peninsulas, gulfs and coves …
The Greek culture and the cultural heritage of ancient Greece are the motive itself and much more valuable than the sun, sea and beaches, but in this combination with accessibility in every way, Greece is one of a few top destinations around the world.
The most important tourist region is the Attica (Attic region), which is the largest travel center of Greece – the capital city is Athens.
There are 3 seas, the Aegean, Ionian and Cretan, that are surround Greek coast. Greek islands are specific for its varied landscape. Every Greek island is a story by itself. Most famous and largest Greek island is Crete with the remains of Minoan civilization, then Rhodes, famous Santorini and Mykonos. In group of islands in the Aegean Sea there are certainly more island known for its beauty: Thasos, Lesbos, Kos, Ios, Skiatos … and among the islands in the Ionian Sea there are Corfu, Kefalonia, Lefkada and Zakynthos as well.
When we talk about Greek coast, it is very popular, except Attic, Macedonian coast and Halkidiki peninsula too, where especially among Serbian tourists, are particularly popular Hanioti, Pefkohori and Polychrono as well as a cultural and shopping center, the capital of the Aegean ( Greek) Macedonia, Thessaloniki.
In this region there is a Mount Olympus, the highest and most important mountain in Greece, Meteora (monastic community) and St. Athonite where is our famous monastery Hilandar.
Except that you will enjoy in sea, sun and sand, in Greece, you can enjoy in many different ways. Don’t miss to feel the cosmopolitan spirit of Athens and Thessaloniki. Maybe the magic taste of the Greek national cuisine would be that particularly part that will make unforgettable impression: Gyros, Souvlaki and Moussaka (Moussaka) are more or less known but you must try Keftedes, Frikase or Pasticio then Loukumades, Koulourakiu or Kourabiedes but before all this, of course , don’t miss a famous Greek Ouzo.
You should not be particularly talk into night life with live Greek music if you like wild night life, just visit Greece.
