Greece in the spring: the island of Corfu

Greek island of Corfu for many centuries influenced by so many peoples and cultures, has experienced a number of historical events that they are more than enough to chronicle the whole country.

Rich history of Corfu must first of all its successful geographical location. Being at the crossroads of maritime trade routes between East and West, he always attracted the eyes of the conquerors. This is understandable - because the man who oversaw Corfu, controlled shipping throughout the Adriatic. And so the precious island permanently "switched" from hand to hand: in ancient times because it broke the Peloponnesian War between the Spartans and Athenians in the Middle Ages, Corfu was ruled by the Sicilians, and was part of the kingdom of Anjou, followed by as much as 400 years, moved to the Venetians, withstood the siege of the Ottoman Empire, but surrendered to Napoleon. After the defeat of the Emperor, Corfu moved to the British, and only in 1864 and became part of Greece.

All these numerous historical disasters have left their mark on this small (its length - only 60 km) piece of land. Here is incredibly interwoven cultures of different peoples - the ancient buildings and the Venetian medieval buildings, tiny rue de Rivoli - a copy of the famous Parisian streets, built by the French, and a number of - strict administrative buildings, as well as excellent road, which appeared under the British ... This island - not just for your relaxing summer vacation at the beach, it is ideal for educational tourism, which are best performed in the spring.

Ancient Kerkyra The main town of the island and its capital is the ancient name of Kerkyra (Corfu) and is considered one of the most beautiful cities in Greece. Labyrinth of picturesque narrow streets "kantune", Byzantine churches, Venetian staircase, the French Quarter and the medieval fortress harmoniously coexist in this wonderful city, built on a narrow strip of land serving in the sea.

The attention of tourists attracted to the "old town" - the largest "live" medieval complex of Greece. Particular attention should be paid to two ancient castles - the Old (Sea), built by the Venetians in the first half of the XVI century, and the New (or coast), erected at the end of the XVI century to defend the city against a possible Turkish attack. As in the old days around the moat boils colorful city market and in the evening are satisfied with the submission Ionian folk dances and light and sound show.

Center of public life - Spianada, the most beautiful area of the city. It is nice to sit at a table under an arch with a cup of coffee and feel the beating pulse of the city, and then continue their journey and be in the Liston - the famous "French" area of Corfu, who inexplicably will remind you of the streets of Paris.

Be sure to see the famous Cathedral (1577), decorated with beautiful icons, and the Church of Saint Spiridon, the patron saint of the city. He was praying in his honor called the children swear by his name - he is the most beloved and revered saint of the island of Corfu. It is believed that he had saved the island four times: twice against the plague of hunger once and once from the Turkish invaders.

The church contains a sarcophagus with the relics of the saint, who treat diseases. By the way, the centuries-old tradition, each year the saint wear new shoes - it is believed that he constantly evades the island and sees to it that its residents was not affected by troubles and misfortunes.

Celebrating Easter If you decide to go to Corfu in the spring, you can not be missed neighbor celebrating Easter. Even if you're a man, far from religion, to see how celebrating this holiday in Corfu - that means to be a magnificent celebration of spring, which develops into a kind of festival and people's celebrations.

In Holy Saturday at exactly eleven o'clock the people begin to throw out the windows of houses large clay jars filled with water, and near the city Pina Kerkyra (Corfu) set a great holiday decoration barrel of water, where every passer throws a coin, for luck. " The evening begins Easter Vigil service, which is held at the central square of the city - Spinade. As soon will hear the words "Christ is Risen!" Drum roll is heard, thousands of people lit candles, the sky is illuminated with lights of fireworks. From the church render the relics of St. Spyridon, and thousands of believers seeking to touch him or simply lie on the ground, over which swept cancer, in order to gain health and happiness.

As Corfu is located in close proximity to Italy, you can make a pilgrimage tour in Bari and visit the church of St. Nicholas - perhaps the most revered saint in Russia. Bari - a city which has more than 900 years (since 1087) serves as the resting place of the relics of St. Nicholas.
