I welcome you;
If you are here, it means you love traveling and are curious about the world; me too. The studies that you will find here are a collection of information that I was able to gather during the trips. I try to present them in the way I am always looking for when planning my next visit. But not only. I invite you to look at the following pages. You will find a lot of important information when organizing a trip and planning costs.
Everyone is delighted with the beautiful Caryatids, i.e. Greek architectural supports. For tourists they are an object no less interesting than the Parthenon, and certainly more effective. However, does everyone know where the name comes from and what it means? Well, Caryatid refers to a small town, near Sparta, Karyai. The villagers, in 480 B.C., in fear of a devastating war, sided with Persia. In fact, the Persians plundered, smoked and murdered. However, as early as 479 B.C.E. Greece won the naval battle at Salamis, later at Platai, in order to defeat the invaders. Athenians did not forgive the inhabitants of Karyai, they murdered all the men, and women were taken prisoner. Caryatid figures are to be a warning against repeating the shameful attitude of our countrymen.
The Greeks call the columns of Erechtheus. They are supposed to be girls who watch over the grave of the legendary Kekrops, half-man, half-snake.
