Mykonos, Greece White Swan Rising From Sea Foam to Fly High in the Sky
The island of Mykonos is like a pearl of great worth hidden in the shell formed by other Greek islands—a treasure kept sheltered from prying eyes. The land of exceptional beauty seems to float on azure sea waves that caress the island like a devoted lover. Pearly-white houses with colourful window shutters as well as numerous churches and windmills are scattered all over the lovely piece of land. The breathtaking scenery seems to be created with one sole purpose in mind: to serve as an infinite source of inspiration for artists and photographers. One may find a lot of them in Alefkandra, also known as the “Venice of Mykonos”, that is considered a “picture perfect” place.
There are a lot of places of interest on the island. For example, Panagia Paraportiani (The Church of Our Lady) located at the Port of Mykonos. Or the Archaeological Museum with its vast collections of sculptures, pieces of furniture, household items and musical instruments. The very atmosphere of the place—that of history and fairytales—makes you feel as if you’ve stepped right into the world of gods and nymphs, heroes and princesses, fantasy and reality merging in such a way that it is impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.
