RHODES - 2-Part series of photos from a beautiful Greek island. BM's first travel album!

In July I visited the island of Rhodes, a Greek island just off the coast of Turkey. Here are some photos I'd like to share with you all of Rhodes town itself.

This first set of pictures is of the new town area. The Old Town pictures will follow on in the next update. Hope you enjoy the pictures:







































































If you have any questions, feel free to ask. Take care until the next update.

Rhodes Interesting to see daily life in the new town although I think it has no character. How about Kalithea, Faliraki, Lindos, beaches, etc

Some great pics you've taken, and a stunning amount of them. Must have been a great time there. I've also been to Rhodos Island, but the weather was utter crap (which shouldn't happen too often over there)...

While I'm at it - someone should move this to the Urban Showcase

REPLIES

skyscrapas - Hey there, thanks for commenting. I think so too, I plan to visit it later in summer 2008 too to see some stuff I didn't last year.

sk - Thanks mate, I loved it. I wasn't very impressed with Faliraki but Lindos and Rhodes town are beautiful.

dliossi - Hi, yeah I agree. Perhaps living there all the time may become boring, for me anyway. I'd miss the unpredictable British weather.

erbsenzaehler - Thanks a lot. I'm a bit of a photo spammer I guess but it's nice to hear they're appreciated. I think you do get caught out by the weather between November and March but the rest of the time is generally okay.

Taller, Better - Thanks for moving all my theads, I seem to be creating a bit of a pain here so apologies for that. I think my other two previous Bristol threads were closed but if they are still alive then they will need moving into this thread. Thanks.

Bristol Mike amazing collection of pictures-i really enjoyed them,what i like about Rhodes is that is has a variety of in landscape and it's also quite a big island but not huge so you can go everywhere and still not get bored

@erbsenzaehler -Rhodes supposed to be the first among the cities of Greece in terms of sunshine and hot weather (*_*) bad luck

Thanks very much, glad you enjoyed them. I'm going back this year so maybe there will be some mroe to add to the collection! I agree, there's so much to see that I need to go back to see the rest. It is bad luck to erbsenzaehler as Rhodes is now the hotspot for sunshine the whole of Europe.

Is this a train station or some sort of administrative building? Looks like it was built by the Italians.



Sort of a mix between Fascist and Art Deco architecture.

It's a theatre and yes it was constructed by the Italians when they ruled the island from 1912-48. At the time Italy was under fascist rule and like you suggested the style of building is in fact Italian art deco from the fascist era. A blend of art deco coupled with minimalist Bauhaus modernism, called 'rationalist' by the Italians and known as fascio libero. There are many Italian buildings of this style on the Dodecanese group of Greek islands that they ruled. The town of Lakki (Porto Lago in Italian) on Leros in particular is notable. A facinating and unique place like Sabaudia in Italy.

As neorion has said, it is a theatre that is apparently doing quite well business-wise. Although it looks kind of ugly in comparison to the surrounding buildings that have been built by the Turks, it is a very interesting building which there many more of in Rhodes town itself.

Has it changed much since then. I've noticed a few newer buildings in the new town and other modern hotels near the beaches but the buildings suggest that there hasn't been much change since the 1980s. I agree that Rhodes is awesome, and as I've said, I'm planning a return journey this August.
