Greece - moving around the country
The largest airport in Greece is the air harbor of Athens, which is located near the capital. The airport annually serves not less than 15 million passengers. There are two terminals - eastern and western. There are duty-free shops, as well as comfortable and colorful restaurants with local and European cuisine. The next largest airport is Macedonia, which is located in Thessaloniki. This air harbor welcomes about four million passengers a year. To the date, there is only one terminal. However, the growing tourist activity pushes the airport reconstruction and the construction of a second terminal. It should be noted that the railway lines are laid to this airport, so you can get to it not only by taxi or by bus, but by train too.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Greece
Greece is a fairly religious country. Although many modern Greeks have moved away from strict Orthodox rites, religious holidays are celebrated in accordance with all the rules. Along with Catholic Europe, Greeks celebrate Christmas according to the Julian calendar, on December 25. On New Year's Eve, locals go to streets to sing carols. The Christmas bread called Vasilopita is baked. The dough hides a coin, and the one who will find it, will succeed in business all next year. On January, 1, the country celebrates the day of St. Basil or Agios Vasilias, who is considered the patron of good and helper to the poor. The most important religious holiday in the country is Easter. There are colorful processions throughout the country.
