Description

Welcome to Corfu

 

Welcome to Corfu - The Island of the Pontikonisi

Corfu is a Greek island in the Ionian Sea, the north- eastern coastline lies on the coast of Sarande, Albania. The capital city of the island and seat of the municipality is also named Corfu. This island is very green compared to other Greek islands, hot and dry summers. The most impressive thing about Corfu is that you will be able to see cultural treasures and not only learn about Corfu but Europe’s history. This island is bound with the history of Greece from the beginning of Greek mythology. It is related to two powerful water symbols, Poseidon, god of the sea and Asopus, an important Greek mainland river. Corfu city looks very different from most Greek cities because of its history.
