Swedish tribute to Corfu
The Swedes have a special preference to Greek islands and especially as seen to the article-tribute from the Swedish major daily newspaper Göteborgs-Posten, they vote Corfu!
Corfu Town is characterized by intense Venetian elements, but also by many English and French influences. It is a cosmopolitan city that exudes a sense of nobility, with main attractions the great Esplanade Square, which is the largest square in the Balkans, the Old and the New Fort, City Hall (Theatre San Giacomo), Cannon, Mon Repos and Museums Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Istorias. Corfu’s coasts have a total length of 217 km and form several bays and capes.
The tribute to Corfu made extensive reference to the picturesque mountain villages, the lush hinterland, endless beaches and bays. Corfu is one of the most beautiful islands in the Mediterranean and one of the greenest islands in Greece. Green slopes of olives and cypress trees, vineyards, fig trees and houses in between green landscape. The turquoise waters invite you to dive, and you can choose between various activities, either on the beach or in the city.
