Greece - moving around the country
The busiest and most basic routes are air-conditioned. However, in remote regions, the bus service operates old vehicles. Buses from villages outside the resort areas run daily. The most remote settlements are serviced only 1-2 times a week. The cost of a bus ticket is about 4 euros per 100 kilometers. It is worth noting that most of the Greek cities are quite small, and they can be easily walked. Therefore, it makes sense to spend money on buses only for traveling between cities or for moving within such large cities as Athens, Patra, Thessaloniki or Kalamata. The railway is an alternative to buses. However, it is worth noting that the railroad doesn’t go through all regions of mainland Greece. Before Olympic Games, the country has repaired the roads and slightly expanded the route. Trains in Greece are represented by two classes. The difference between the first and second class that connect towns, is quite insufficient. Travelers don’t have to wait for the special comfort.
Nature and parks of Greece
Vikos-Aoos National Park is also located in the Pindus Mountains, but it has a different terrain. The park includes Vikos Canyon, Aoos Gorge, and Mount Timfi. The place is unique in its beauty and features of the landscape. The gorge is even included in the Guinness Book of Records as the deepest in the world. The glacial Dragon Lake is on the slopes of Mount Timfi. According to local legends, in prehistoric times, these lands were inhabited by dragons, who fought. They threw rocks and stones at each other. This is how the unique relief of the park was created. Besides a huge number of amazing animals and plants, you can meet unusual settlements in the mountainous region of Zagori.
