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
One of the most joyful holidays is Apokries, which lasts about two weeks and ends before the Great Lent. During this time, the Greeks cook a variety of meat dishes, which are mostly of pork, and treat relatives and friends. After the feast, the Greeks dress up in costumes and go to the main square, where they continue to drink wine and have fun. The holiday ends with a grand carnival. One of the most spectacular feasts is the carnival in the city of Patras on the Peloponnese Peninsula. During the event, spectators can enjoy the procession of chariots. The festival ends with the burning of the carnival king. The dates of carnivals vary depending on the date of Easter. They begin about 2 weeks before this holiday.
