Greece – The Acropolis of Athens

The Erechtheum, the Acropolis of Athens, Greece The Acropolis is probably the best known ancient site in Athens. It’s a great place, lovely located in one of the hills. The Acropolis of Athens is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You find there several ancient buildings or ruins, i.e., the Parthenon or my favorite – the Erechtheum – seen in today’s picture. There are actually many acropoleis in Greece, but the one in Athens is the most famous. I’m a big fan of ancient culture and love to visit all of the sites with ruins; so I’ll say that visit to the Acropolis of Athens is not completed without going to the Acropolis Museum. It’s a large and wonderful museum, with lots of the findings of the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens.

Greece – Capital

Greece What’s the capital of Greece? -That’s easy, Athens; not so much confusion as with Australia or Canada. I’ll show you 4 posts about Athens, because it’s a nice city (it is! especially for tourists!), has been an important place, and it’s simply worth visiting! Today, a question. Athens is the capital and largest city of Greece. Have you ever wondered about its name? Why the city is called Athens, i.e., in a plural form; why not a singular form? Does it depend on a language? Maybe, a little bit; but in many language the city has also a plural form; e.g., in Polish it’s plural, and we say in Polish “Athens are”; in English it’s plural, but we say “Athens is”. It’s complicated… And I don’t know the answer to my question. In different areas, city was called both, in a plural as well in a singular form...

Peru – When to Go

Peru You can go to Peru basically all year round. However, the best weather for visiting Machu Picchu should be between May and September, or even between June and August, but then you have to be prepared for crowds. I was in Peru at the end of March/beginning of April; and in some places you could still experience the power of last raining season (on the picture).
