From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine If you ever have been at Mykonos, the heart of the Cyclades islands, you probably have noticed the two neighbouring islands, Syros and Tinos. But I am sure you haven't been interested in them at all. They are both half an hour away from Mykonos but let's leave Syros for now, and talk about Tinos, the one at the right. Tinos is actually the ideal place for lovers of nature, architecture, art and traditions. It is one of the largest in Cyclades islands, a place for pilgrimage, unspoiled and unaffected from tourism. The island houses some 600 chapels and thousands of dovecotes all elaborately decorated. The dovecotes are two storey towers decorated with geometric designs, which are mainly built on land slopes at an angle to protect the entrances from wind to help takeoffs and landings of the doves. The decorating patterns are ... (more)

Samothraki, A Most Awe-inspiring Island on the Aegean Sea

From "Greek Isles in the Summer" Magazine I haven't been yet on the island of Samothraki but I have watched it from far away many times. When travelling to Thessaloniki Greece back and forth I have stoped at Alexandroupolis city which is the main port to Samothraki ferries, and the island stands gray in colur in the far distance. Also when I go to visit Imbros or Gokceada island in Turkey the island shows almost the same sillohouette but this time the view is from the south side.  Eleni who is my cousin living in Thessaloniki and works for EPESTH, the Voleyball Federation of Th...

Priene, the Ancient Holy City of Ionia

From the Turkish Riviera Magazine The city of Priene, an Ionian settlement, was laid out on Mount Mycale (Samsun) and contained many famous examples of Hellenistic art and architecture. The original location of the city has never been found but it was probably a peninsula with two harbors. The ruins are from the new city built in the 4th century BC. It is a small city with 4 or 5 thousand inhabitants and not of great political significance even if it shared the same history with the other Ionian cities. The city is mainly organized in four districts, the political (bouleuterion ... (more)
