Macedonian Economy

Macedonia is one of the richer regions of Greece. Its geophysical outline divides the area in three regions: Westerner, Central and Eastern Macedonia. Each region has its own economic structure. Central Macedonia is the richer and most efficient region. It includes the most bountiful plain of the country, that of Thessalonica, supplying the whole country with its produce. Livestock farming, even though it is adequately developed, it plays a secondary role in this area. Central Macedonia is considered one of the first industrial regions of the country, with main centers Thessalonica, Veria, Edessa and Naoussa.

Eastern Macedonia is a tobacco-growing region. Here is produced first quality tobacco, known well all over the world. Also livestock-farming is developed, mainly that of big animals. The inferior terrain of Western Macedonia and the relatively difficult climatic conditions, do not allow efficient cultivation of the land. Therefore agricultural activities are combined with the advanced livestock farming. Fishery is also developed in the region. Seafaring fishery does not exist in this part of the land because Western Macedonia is landlocked; Fishery however exists in Macedonia’s sweet waters (lakes, rivers).

Mykonos Island

Ιt is the cosmopolitan center of the Cyclades Complex. Its reputation has spread during the last years due to its unique landscape, its archaelogical sites, its cosmopolitan environment and its magnificent beaches.

White-washed, cube-shaped houses are scattered all over the island, narrow streets in the town, chapels and picturesque tavernas hide among art galleries and stores selling jewellery, souvenirs etc.

Trends that sweep through the international scene are born in the intense nightlife of this modern resort.

An island of tempting and tempestuous reputation such as Mykonos, with high tourism and a rather superficial lifestyle, inevitably has both fans and critics.

But even the most unsuspecting visitor immediately realizes that Mykonos is not only a crazy “bon-viveur”, but also an attractive, picturesque island with white Chora aside the crystal-clear blue waters of the Aegean Sea.

Direct international charter flights and regular domestic flights from Athens serve frequently, during summer, the airport of Mykonos.

Because it is so famous, Mykonos gets really overcrowded during high season but for those who enjoy the crowd, great fun and all night long entertainment, Mykonos is the ideal place for holidays.

Have a wonderful time...
