Patra is a beautiful city, located in western Greece. It boasts a mixture of rich history with modern architecture, of natural beauty with the warm hospitality of its people. Either by car or by boat, Patra is easy to reach and offers to its visitors a wide range of places to explore and things to do. Let’s take a look at some of the most popular ones.

Starting from the center of the city, where all the cultural life of the city begins, we have Georgiou I Square, with its impressive fountains. Do not miss the chance to watch a theater show at the nearby municipal Theatre Apollon, built in the 19th century in a neoclassical style.

From there, you have multiple other sites to explore, depending on your interests. If you are a fan of history, ascend to the Ano Poli, where you will find the church of Pantocrator and numerous numerous instances of Roman architexture. The most important of these is the Roman Odeon, which is still functional to this day and it is great for a summer show or concert. Additionally, the Byzantine Patras Castle is worth a visit, as it overlooks the whole city and its interior is a beautiful public garden. A few kilometers away there is the new Archaeological Museum, with local findings from the Mycenaean to the Late Roman era.

If you want to hang out in the busiest places of the city, there are still a lot of options to choose. Being a maritime city, Patra has places like the lighthouse and the jetty, where a lot of people go to enjoy their coffee. Four sets of stairs divide the upper town from the downtown, and they are all regarded as graphic spots to watch over the city. They are in some of the most important places in the city, namely in Agiou Nicolaou street, in Gerokostopoulou street, in Patreos street and in Trion Navarchon street. The last one is a pedestrian area, with a small park. Also being close to Psilalonia Square, it is regarded as the ‘culinary’ area of the city, together with Ifaistou Street. A lot of these restaurants are indeed worth a try!

One cannot argue they have visited Patra if they have not been to the following places. First, there is the church of St. Andrew, dedicated to the patron of the city, where parts of his remains are kept. It is the second-largest Byzantine-style temple in the Balkans and the largest one in Greece, with a capacity of more than 5000 within the church. Second, there is the Spinney of Patra, a pine-covered hill inside the city. Its specially-formed paths are great for recreational walks and jogging, complimented by the shade offered by the tall trees. Finally, before leaving, two places just outside the city are Achaia Clauss, a wine industry and tasting center in Petroto village and the Mycenaean cemetery of Voudeni, with some of the most important sites of the Mycenaean world.

Patra is not only known for its sites, but also for its tradition and culture. The Patra Carnival is the most well-known and well-attended spectacle, the largest such event in Greece. With a history of almost 200 years and deeply-rooted in the mentality of the citizens, every year the month of February transforms the city into one giant theme park. The festivities climax in the last weekend of Carnival with two grand parades. Its characteristics are spontaneity, improvisation, inspiration and volunteerism.

Combining the ancient and the modern sites, preserving the traditions and creating novelties, Patra is the city of the harmonic coexistence of oppositions. It is indeed a lively city that promises any aspiring travelers to have a great time exploring it.

Rhodes is a Greek island located in the southeastern Aegean and it belongs to the Dodecanese. It is the largest island of the Dodecanese and the fourth largest in Greece. Its history goes back centuries, it has a rich natural environment, beautiful beaches with clear blue waters, and modern tourist infrastructure. In recent years it has experienced tremendous economic growth as it has developed into a popular tourist destination and attracts millions of tourists every year.

The island of Rhodes is located at the crossroads of two major sea routes of the Mediterranean, between the Aegean Sea and the coasts of the Middle East such as Cyprus and Egypt. Many civilizations have colonized the island, leaving their mark on all aspects of the island’s culture: in art, language, architecture. Its strategic location brought the island great wealth and made the city of Rhodes one of the prominent cities of ancient Greece.

The capital of the island, with the Medieval City in its center, is located in its north part. In 1988, the Medieval City was recognized as a World Heritage City. 

In the classical period, Rhodes produced excellent art. The Colossus was the most famous creation, one of the seven wonders of the world, built between 304 BC and 293 BC, by the Lindian sculptor Haris. The construction of the Colossus lasted 12 years and was completed in 282 BC. For many years, the statue was probably placed at the entrance of the harbor and personified the god Helios, the god of the sun, until a powerful earthquake hit Rhodes in 226 BC. The city was severely damaged and the Colossus statue collapsed. Archeologists are still searching for leftovers of the statue, but so far no solid evidence has been found.


The island has a multitude of famous places which are definitely worth visiting.

1. If you are a lover of history and archaeological sites – museums, you should visit one of the most well-preserved castles in the world, the palace of the Grand Master of the Knights or Castello. It is located on the northwest side of the medieval city of Rhodes at the highest point of the castle and it is perhaps the most important monument of the period of the knights.


  1. The Archaeological Museum of Rhodes is housed in a medieval building of Gothic style with renaissance elements which was built on the ruins of a Roman building in 1440 by the Grand Master De Lastique and completed fifty years later by the Grand Master Pierre d’Aubison.

Easter Island is a Chilean island in the southeastern Pacific Ocean, at the southeasternmost point of the Polynesian Triangle in Oceania. Easter Island is most famous for its nearly 1,000 extant monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In 1995, UNESCO named Easter Island a World Heritage Site, with much of the island protected within Rapa Nui National Park.


The island is about 24.6 km long by 12.3 km at its widest point. Ιts overall shape is triangular. It has an area of 163.6 square kilometres and a maximum elevation of 507 metres above mean sea level. Archipelago Tristan da Cunha in the southern Atlantic competes for the title of the most remote island, lying 2,430 kilometres from Saint Helena island and 2,816 kilometres from the South African coast.


It is believed that Easter Island’s Polynesian inhabitants arrived on Easter Island sometime near 1200 AD! They created a thriving and industrious culture, as evidenced by the island’s numerous enormous stone moai and other artifacts. However, land clearing for cultivation and the introduction of the Polynesian rat led to gradual deforestation. By the time of European arrival in 1722, the island’s population was estimated to be 2,000–3,000. European diseases, Peruvian slave raiding expeditions in the 1860s, and emigration to other islands.
