Good Friday in Greece is both the most solemn holiday of the year, and the most beautiful. In every church throughout the whole country, Good Friday begins with bells. But not the joyous church bells we hear every Sunday and holidays — the bell is a mourning bell, ringing a single ring at regular intervals
Throughout year, and especially in the summer, cultural festivals of all types are the anticipated events. Both locals and travelers to Greece look forward to these festivals of music, dance and theatre at some of the most scenic and historic venues across the country.
