Katakolon/Olimpija

Kolijevka sporta stara tisuću godina.

Odmor u Grčkoj tijekom MSC krstarenja obiluje poviješću i mitovima. Katakolon je maleni gradić na moru u Grčkoj, u zaljevu Agios Andreas, samo 20 km udaljen od antičke lokacije Olimpija.
Povijesnim asocijacijama i reputaciji Olimpije, koja je više od tisućljeća održavala najvažnije panhelenske igre, mogu konkurirati samo Delfi ili Mikena. MSC mediteranska krstarenja nude razne izlete u Olimpiju. To je jedan od najvećih antičkih lokaliteta u Grčkoj koji se proteže pored rijeka Alfiós i Kládhios, a nadvisuje ga brdo Krónos.

Sama količina urušenih struktura može ostaviti zbunjujući dojam o njihovoj veličini i funkciji, ali je sama lokacija pitoreskna, zasigurno vrijedna posjeta na MSC izletu. Ulaz na lokalitet, smješten samo 200 m od modernog sela, vodi zapadnom stranom zida Altisa, pored skupine javnih i službenih građevina. Pritanej je bio administrativno središte u kojem su atletičari boravili i hranili se o državnom trošku.

Možete vidjeti ruševine gimnazije i palestre (škola za vježbanje), koje su natjecatelji upotrebljavali tijekom obaveznog mjeseca vježbanja prije igara. Izvan toga stajala je kuća za svećenike Teokoleon, zdanje s kolonadama u čijem se jugoistočnom kutu nalazi bizantinska crkva. Glavno središte okruga Altis veliki je ​Zeusov hram izgrađen u dorskom stilu.

Sagrađen između 470. i 456. g. pr. Kr, bio je velikkao Partenon, činjenica koju potkrepljuju veliki tamburi (cilindričnivaljci stupova) koji se prostiru uokolo. Ukrašenost hrama također je konkurirala najboljima u Ateni; djelomični kipovi Pelopa u utrci s kolima, Lapita i Kentaura te Herkulovih podviga sada su pohranjeni u obližnjem muzeju.

Among the museum's most notable exhibits are particularly fine collections of beautifully detailed sculptures and bronzes as well as numerous terracotta artifacts and mosaics. The complex also includes a book and souvenir shop, which you may also like to visit. Your Olympic tour comes to a close with a scenic return drive to the port and your ship.Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair.

Grčka

U zaštitnom okrilju bogova
U zaštitnom okrilju bogova

Bio bi potreban cijeli životni vijek putovanja s otoka na otok kako bi se u potpunosti doživjelo 227 naseljenih grčkih otoka raspršenih po Sredozemnom moru.
Voda boje safira zagrljena stjenovitom obalom sa skrivenim zaljevima i pješčanim plažama motiv je koji se može vidjeti na plakatima za putovanja, a savršeno oslikava hvaljeno grčko ljeto sunca, mora i pijeska.


Za svakog s kulturološkim afinitetima krstarenje na grčke otoke pun je pogodak. Svaka je kultura ostavila svoj trag i gotovo svaki gradić ili selo imaju poveznicu s prošlošću, bez obzira radi li se o sitnim ostacima Afroditina hrama, zaštitničkoj venecijanskoj utvrdi ili prašnjavom Bizantinskom samostanu ukrašenom ekskluzivnim freskama. 


No zov kulture nikada neće biti previše zahtjevan na odmoru na grčkim otocima. Hedonistički užici ugodne klonulosti i topline – plivanje u blagotvornim zaljevima u sumrak, razgovor i piće ispod zvijezda – jednako su privlačni.
Grandiozna, globalizirana Atena obavezan je, gotovo neizbježan uvod u Grčku: osim posjeta Akropoli , ona nudi istinski velegradski raspon kulturnih raznolikosti, od muzeja do koncerata; dobro opremljenih trgovina, gurmanskih restorana i klubova.
