Passengers travelling by ferry to Zakynthos arrive at what the Venetians call “the Blossom of the Orient”!
Travelling to the Destination Zakynthos
The naming of course does not only refer to the landscape full of flowers but also to literature and arts in general which shaped the romantic image of the island. Several significant Greek poets like Dionysios Solomos and Andreas Kalvos were born on the island. Despite the flourishing of painting in the 17th century and the foundation of the school of Zakynthos, music still holds the first place in the hearts of the people of Zakynthos. Zakynthian Kantada (local type of song) is still being sung all over the island.
Tourists travelling to the destination Zakynthos have plenty to see. Many sights are waiting for the visitors to be admired. The Solomos square, the Byzantine Museum, the Agios Markos square and many churches like Agios Nikolaos tou Molou, Agios Dionysios, Agios Markos and Agios Georgios are only some of the sights worth seeing. The enormous earthquake in 1953 unfortunately destroyed major parts of the island but luckily, the sights mentioned above were spared from the catastrophe. Before their departure with ferries from Zakynthos, visitors should however have experienced the wonderful beaches and the crystal clear waters that surround the island.
Zakynthos covers an area of 402 square kilometres and has a coastline of 123 km. Approximately 30,000 people live on the island. Most of them are farmers or work in tourism.
