Visit the folklore museum in Mykonos

The folklore museum is one of the best ways to get to know the culture and heritage of Mykonos. Personally I find it very important to get to know the culture of the places that you visit, it provides really great context to your present day visit of Mykonos and you will start to notice the remnants of the history in the present day architecture, music and food all across the island. This museum is located near the neighborhood of Kastro in Chora.

Did you know that Mykonos has its own historical library?

Many people wouldn't think to visit a library on their vacation, but I do suggest stopping by just to check it out. Besides being a party town, Mykonos has so many beautiful aspects of Greek culture that shouldn't be missed out on. In the library, you'll be able to see many different books outlining the history and culture of Greece. The library is a historical municipal library, meaning that their books focus on preserving the history of Greece. The address to the library is Kampani 2, Mikonos (Kampani Mansion, Ag. Kyriaki Square, 846 00, Greece

Check it out!

Mykonos has had its Champagne fuelled Tourism

Truthfull to the point, saturation beyond belief, this was happening 20 years ago,my friends who have a travel agency told me'Hash if you want the remember your Mykonos don't come back, keep those memories'thats how much they are fed up with their lives there when it takes 30 minutes just to get somewhere instead of 5 minutes!...It has taken me a very long time to recover missing my Mykonos for it gave me a new life which I didn't have previously..... here is our lovely home for many years which doesn't exist as there is a villa built there now!....

Mykonos Bar Taken To Court By American Tourists For Charging €600 For Two Drinks And A Meze !

Sadly nothing directly will happen to this place..... and no-one has the power to shut them down......yes they will be fined...so what?....There are countless negative reviews on Tripadvisor which I have already posted.....the way I have understood this is that they believe this is media exposure to enhance further business....I have lived and worked in Tourism Industry in various parts and I must say this is spectacularly show biz style negative PR ..... ripping off Travellers is not new in Mykonos.....I will ask my friends who are born and live there what the motives are behind this to allow this situation get out of control....

Everyone is in Mykonos this year!

As always Mykonos is the place to be for celebrities around the world! This years guests are Elon Musk, Jordan Belfort, Tristan Thompson, Mohammed Salah, and 50 Cent. While I personally will not be near Mykonos, I like seeing that these celebrities are bringing tourism and income for the Greek people. Greece's tourism industry is booming!
