Greece – Thassos Travel Guide

IMG_20130829_112926

ENG: 190 kilometers from Thessaliniki, there is the “Emerald of Aegean”, northernmost Greek island, Thassos. This island is famous by its white marble, dense pine forests, olive groves, long sandy beaches, and the locals mostly work in tourism and beekeeping. Therefore, I recommend that as a souvenir of this island you should take a jar of honey from the black pine.

You can get to the island by ferry from Keramoti and in 45 minutes you’ll be at the island. Or you can get your ferry from Cavalla, you’ll getto the island much faster but this is gonna cost you more. On the “green island” there are three towns. Tha capital of the island is Limenas, and beside usual tourist atractions you can find at the seaside, here you can visit archaeological remains, the ancient theater and archaeological museum. The city of Limenaria is great choice for family vacations with kids. It’s peaceful with long sandy beach and yeou can really relax and rest. Pothos is small cute town, located 12 km from Limenaria, and it’s great choice for younger people. There are numerious tavernas, coffee shops and bar, so you can have fun during all day. Beside these fun things, Pothos is located by one of the most beautiful beaches of this island.

SRB: Na 190 km istočno od Soluna, nalazi se “Smaragd Egeja”, najsevernije grčko ostrvo Tasos. Ovo ostrvo poznato je po belom mermeru, gustim borovim šumama, maslinjacima, dugim peščanim plažama, a stanovništvo se uglavnom bavi turizmom i pčelarstvom. Tako vam preporučujem da kao suvenir sa ovog ostrva obavezno ponesete teglu meda od crnog bora.

Do ostrva možete doći trajektom iz Keramotija, za 45 minuta ili iz Kavale, za duplo kraće vreme ali će vas ta brzina i više koštati. Na “zelenom ostrvu” nalaze se tri gradića. Limenas je glavni grad ostrva, i pored klasičnih primorskih turističkih atrakcija, u ovom graduću se nalaze arhiološki ostaci, Agora ( drevno pozorište) i arheološki muzej. Limenarija je idealan izbor ukoliko ne volite gužve na plaži, dok je 12 km udaljeni Potos više namenjen mlađoj populaciji. Upravo u Potosu sam ja provela svoj godišnji odmor pre tri godine. Ovaj simpatični gradić na jugozapadu ostrva pun je taverni i kafića ali je i smešten pored jedne od najlepših plaži ostrva.

ONO ŠTO MORATE VIDETI / URADITI NA OSTRVU:

  1. Krstarenje oko ostrva-  za samo desetak eura imaćete priliku da obiđete najlepše plaže ostrva i uživate u tradicionalnim grčkim jelima na brodu.
  1. Plaža Alexsandra Beach Spa Hotel-a
  1. Giros- preporučujem vam mali restoran blizu luna parka, čiji naziv nažalost ne znam, u kome rade braća koja odlično govore srpski, a giros je najbolji na svetu!
