10 najboljših turističnih znamenitosti v Grčiji

10 najboljših turističnih znamenitosti v Grčiji

1. Akropola

Priznajmo si, da je Akropola na vrhu vseh turističnih znamenitosti v Grčiji, ki so bile kdaj napisane - vendar to ne pomeni nujno, da je to narobe. Kajti Akropola je kljub hrupu, prahu in gneči vsekakor nujna za vse, ki obiščete Grčijo ali se zanimate za preteklost. Čeprav ni nujno najbolj gladka in urejena izkušnja, je vseeno na vrhu seznama želja večine ljudi ob obisku Grčije. Marsikdo pa ne doživi novega muzeja Akropole in zamuditi bi ga bilo pravo napako. Sodoben, fascinanten in poln edinstvenih artefaktov in informacij, res ne bi smeli videti Akropole, ne da bi tudi raziskali muzej.


10 najbolj priljubljenih znamenitosti in stvari na Kefaloniji

Kefalonija (Kefalonija) je največji in eden najlepših grških Jonskih otokov s čarobnimi turkiznimi in cerulovsko modrimi vodami, ki se pretakajo ob belih prodnatih plažah, in apnenčastimi gorami z vonjem po borovcih, razrezanimi z bujnimi, zelenimi rodovitnimi dolinami. V prejšnjem tisočletju je bil otok odvisen predvsem od kmetijstva, po filmu iz leta 2001 Mandolina kapitana Corellija, ki temelji na knjigi Louisa de Bernieresa in v kateri igrata Penelope Cruz in Nicholas Cage, je turizem postajal vse pomembnejši.

Skoraj vsa otoška mesta in vasi je bil v hudem potresu leta 1953 opustošen, zato je arhitekture zgodovinskega pomena malo, z eno opazno izjemo: nekako je vas Fiskardo preživela obsežno uničenje. Vendar pa je na Kefaloniji še vedno veliko lepih krajev za obisk. Letališče leži devet kilometrov južno od Argostolija, glavnega mesta otoka.

Načrtujte svoje potovanje z našim seznamom najboljših stvari na Kefaloniji.

The History of Mani, Peloponnese, Greece, and the Top 10 Must See Attractions

Mani, located on the Peloponnese Peninsula, which was known in The Middle ages and Ottoman era as Morea, was one of the most inaccessible, wildest and mutinous parts of Greece, which, until the 1970s, could only be reached by boat.

Mani is divided into three regions, Outer Mani (North West), Inner, or Deep Mani (South West), and Lower Mani (East).

Inner Mani, with its rugged coastline, is the most authentic region of Mani and starts at the capital city of Mani, Areopolis, which in Greek means ‘City of War’.

It’s no surprise then, that originating from a ‘City of War’, the inhabitants of Mani, the Maniots, more commonly known in Greece as Maniates, have the reputation of being the fiercest people of Greece.

History of Mani

The Maniates, these fierce warriors, descendants of the ancient Dorians, and direct descendants of the ancient Spartans, said to be the most pure-blooded of all Greeks, are also said to be some of the most vicious and ruthless of Greeks, known for piracy and vendettas, but above all, Maniates are known for their Independence.

Mani was the only region of Greece, which retained self-rule, when Greece fell under Ottoman rule in 1460.

As Ottoman power began to decline, four hundred years later, in the early 1800s, Mani became a stronghold for the Klephts (mountain bandits), Petros Mavromichalis, ‘chief in charge’ of Mani, leader of The Greek War of Independence, proclaimed the revolution on March 17 1821 at Areopolis.

A monument of Petros Mavromichalis in Areopoli – Mani – Peloponnese – photo Bgabel at wikivoyage

Mavromichalis and his heroic Palikaria, played a major role in gaining victory over the Turks in the revolution, resulting in Greece becoming independent, the First Hellenic Republic, governed by Ioannis Kapodistrias.

Greek independence meant Mani losing its local autonomy, which did not go down well with the Maniates, Mavromichalis and Governor of Greece, Kapodistrias, were forever at loggerheads, at the first opportunity, which happened to be the refusal of Mavromichalis to pay his taxes, Kapoditrias had him thrown in prison.

Ioannis Kapodistrias first governer of Independent Greece, The First Hellenic Republic

This was a major affront to the proud Mavromichalis family, leaders of the successful uprising against the Turks, and on 27 September 1831, they took their revenge.

As Kapodistrias was about to attend a ceremony, at the church of Saint Spyridon, in Nafplion, (the capital of the Greek state in the years 1828 – 1833), Mavromichalis’s brother, Konstantis, along with his son Georgos, assassinated Ioannis Kapodistrias, the founder of modern Greece, on the church steps.

The murder of Kapodistrias by Charalambos Pachis 1844 1891

The assassination of Kapodistrias, was the beginning of the end for Mani, in 1878 the Greek government pulled the plug on Mani’s local autonomy, the place became a backwater, people abandoned the dry, infertile land to find a better life elsewhere, many settled in major Greek cities, others tried their luck further afield, in Europe and America.

Quite a number of Maniates fled to Corsica (where their ancestors had settled, during the second half of the seventeenth century, not only due to the lack of arable land, but to avoid paying taxes to the Turks during the Ottoman rule), and founded the town of Cargese.

The village and the harbour of Cargese – Corsica – photo Jean-Pol GRANDMONT

The town of Vatheia, scene of so many family feuds and vendettas, with its isolated, fortified towers, became a ruin, and is now one of the most photographed places in Greece

The Maniates who stayed, scratched a living from the dry, rocky, infertile earth, concentrating on the Koroneiki olives, which produce the best virgin olive oil in Greece, and herbs such as oregano, thyme and mint, about the only things to grow in this unforgiving ground.

Piracy was still rife, the Maniates considered it legitimate, their compensation, so to speak, for the infertile land of Mani and lack of natural resources, local priests actually blessed the boats before pirates set off on a mission!

After the 1970s, when roads were constructed, and Mani was no longer only accessible by sea, the region, although wild and remote, began to prosper, tiny fishing villages, Byzantine churches, sandy beaches, and, of course, the abandoned towers of Vatheia, became popular tourist attractions, cafes, tavernas and souvenir shops, sprung up by the dozen, to cater to the crowds.
