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
On January 8, Greece celebrates the Women's Day. On this day, women change roles with men. Latter should spend all day at home and do household chores, including cleaning, cooking, and home assignments with children. At this time, their wives go to bars and places where they can meet their friends. Ladies can spend the whole day with fragrant coffee. There are no common worries and problems. Most cafeterias in Greece are managed by the same families for many years. Mostly men run restaurants. Therefore, women manage to try a fundamentally new role on this day. The summer solstice on June 23 is peculiarly celebrated. At night, the Greeks perform mysterious rituals and burn flowers collected specifically for this holiday in May. In such a manner, they drive evil spirits away from their families. It’s also common to augur the future at night.
