Aroma of Prague

Let’s wander a little bit in the streets of Prague…for some reason it sends me signals of melancholy to look at these pictures, I assume because the city style was kind of mixed; so many arts and eras put together. The Gothic buildings especially sometimes creep me out! But we are here to have fun, so if you are going in Prague, just get lost in the streets of the old town and you will not regret it!

In the suburbs of Malmö

Yes I might have posted several times about Malmö, but this area just a little bit north of the city centre, called Vastra Hamnen is among my favourites! Still in walking distance from the centre (half an hour let’s say) it is a good opportunity to cross the city, parks and residential areas with great architecture (last photo) similar to the blocks built in southern countries with gardens and balconies (!!!!), and that is something you don’t often see in Scandinavia!

I love it for a weekend or even a day trip as I live in Copenhagen! From Copenhagen’s central station you can take the train, cross Øresund bridge and arrive in Malmo within half an hour!

Visiting Makrinitsa village in Pilion’s mountains

On Monday’s post I started by presenting Portaria, a small village on the mountains of Pilio, close to the city of Volos. On the next day of our trip, we chose to visit the next village which is also very well known and equally picturesque, called Makrinitsa. Makrinitsa is famous for its special architecture as you see in the last picture: houses hanging from the cliffs with roofs built out of stone. Moreover, the view of Volos beneath is breathtaking, therefore earning the title of ‘Pilion’s balcony’.

We strolled around the cobbled streets and admired the view for 2-3 hours. Local old women hold shops with local products and there is a cafeteria where also a very old Greek movie was filmed. I suggest stopping there and sipping a coffee while enjoying the view and getting cool under the huge trees.

Having coffee with this view…Not bad at all.

The houses are literally hanging from the cliffs.

This is the small square of the village where an old Greek movie was filmed. Here you can make a stop and have a coffee, the trees can help you cool on a very hot day.



Bells anyone?

Local shops in a market very similar of that in the Greek islands.

Roofs built of stone.

While entering the village, it is clear that the architecture is far from the urban one of the modern Greek cities.

Overlooking at Volos.

Quite a view of Volos right? This is why this village is called ‘the balcony of Pilion’.

I hope you like the pictures!!
