I have heard things, that maybe they will rebuild the Ancient Landmark of the Colossus of Rhodes.... but not in the same place.


Interesting project, but only rumors as of now.

Rhodos seems fascinating! After I've seen Paros, Mikonos and Santorini I've been fascinated and thinking to turn back. Next time can be Rhodos or Creta. Probably prefer Rhodos thus it's smaller and gives a better atmosphere of an island.

Rhodes plans to rebuild Colossus




Local authorities on the Greek island of Rhodes are planning to rebuild the Colossus of Rhodes - one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Faliraki municipality mayor Yannis Iatridis has offered land and planning permission to erect the 33-metre (108 feet) stature of the sun god Helios.

Greek-Cypriot sculptor Nikos Kotziamanis is leading the project.

The Colossus was built in the third century BC by Chares of Lindos but was later destroyed by a strong earthquake.

Luring tourists

Mr Kotziamanis has been preparing the project for several years, bringing together a committee of well-known European politicians and artists.

He had originally wanted to place the Colossus in its original location by the main harbour in Rhodes town, the BBC's Malcolm Brabant reports.

But the sculptor claims that dithering by the town's mayor has scuppered his plan.

Instead, the brass statue is set to be erected at the seaside resort of Faliraki, notorious as a magnet for unruly young Britons lured by its summer culture of round-the-clock drinking, promiscuity and brawling, our correspondent says.

Mayor Iatridis told a news conference last week he wanted to rid his municipality of its tawdry image and to generate much needed income.

It is estimated that visitors to the proposed Colossus and its adjacent cultural centre would yield Ģ25m ($47m) a year in entrance fees alone.

Mr Kotziamanis and his backers want the statue to replicate the lure of the Statue of Liberty in New York harbour, our correspondent says.

The sculptor plans to make it hollow so that visitors can climb inside to reach the head, which will provide a panoramic view of the Aegean Sea.

Mr Kotziamanis is pledging to maintain historical accuracy and says - that like the original - his creation will be standing on a plinth.

Thanks george and Raleigh!
I leave in 4 days! My damn digital camera has been acting up when I use the flash setting and i have no time to fix it. However, daytime shots wont be a problem. I will post some when I return!

My itinerary is like this: Arrive in Athens this Saturday. Fly out to Zakynthos early Sunday morning. Stay there for 4 days. Come back to Athens. Spend 3-4 days there mainly swimming during the days and going out at nights. Then head north to Mount Parnassos to visit my grandparents in their summer home in a village very close to Levadia. Then, return to Athens and maybe go to one of the Saronic Gulf islands for a couple of days. return to Athens for 2 days and then come back to Toronto.

Άλλο ένα χιλιοπαιγμένο θέμα (και μάλιστα σχετικά πρόσφατα είχε κάνει παλι post ο kuvvaci νομίζω αλλά τότε κανείς δεν είχε κάνει δημοσίευση φωτογραφίες... )

Τέλος πάντων γίνομαι γκρινιάρης , αλλά το έχουμε ξανασυζητήσει αυτό χωρίς να αλλάξει κάτι.

Αγαπητέ Leafs θα σε παρακαλούσα τουλάχιστον να ρίχνεις μια ματιά έτσι ώστε να αποφεύγονται επαναλήψεις φωτογραφιών και θεμάτων.

Και επιτέλους ας πάψει το spam με την Αθήνα όπου βλέπουμε την ίδια ταινία συνέχεια , ακρόπολη,πλάκα,κέντρο.
Προσωπικά πιστεύω ότι θα έπρεπε να έχουμε σαν πρότυπο τα post του gm...

Σε ότι αφορά τις φωτογραφίες κάποιες (εκτός από το κάστρο και τη Λίνδο ) δεν είναι καν από τη Ρόδο αλλά από το όμορφο νησί της Καρπάθου...

Poliochni είπα την άποψη μου , με σεβασμό στον leafs .
Δεν είναι κακό να υπάρχουν διαφορετικές απόψεις , εσύ έχεις διαφορετική , καλώς , κανένα πρόβλημα.
Εδώ όμως δε μιλάμε για τυπολατρεία αλλά για ακριβώς το αντίθετο !!! Μια κατάσταση χύμα , έκανε κάποια προσπάθεια ο konstantinoupolis να φτιάξει κάποια sticky αλλά κάποιοι τον έγραψαν κανονικά.


Σε ότι αφορά τη Lisbon κανείς δε φιλοξένησε κανένα , απλά έσκασε μύτη κάποιος και πέταξε κάποιες φωτογραφίες από την πόλη του , χωρίς να πει καν ένα γεια , μια καλησπέρα , έστω να ρωτήσει "παιδιά να σας δείξω καμιά φωτογραφία από την πόλη μου? "
Αν εσύ η οποιόσδήποτε άλλος ενδιαφέρεται να δεί τόνους από φωτογραφίες της πορτογαλίας , μπορεί με ΔΥΟ click να πάει στο αντίστοιχο πορτογαλικό forum και να το ευχαριστηθεί.


Δυστυχώς δεν υπάρχει moderator γιαυτό ο καθένας κάνει ότι θέλει . Είπαμε ότι φυσικά και θέλουμε να χαλαρώνουμε με ωραίες φωτογραφίες αλλά με λίγο προσοχή και όχι χύμα.

Πολύ σωστά. Και οι δύο , με το πλοίο και με το νεκροταφείο είναι από τα Πηγάδια την πρωτεύουσα του νησιού.

Λοιπόν εγώ το κλείνω εδώ , δεν έχω κανένα πρόβλημα , απλά λέω την άποψη μου και τις προτάσεις μου και τίποτα άλλο.
