My friend really wants to baptize her son somewhere in Greece with beautiful nature and scenery. Any recommendations on where to go? Islands vs mainland? What is better in your experience, I've never been to any baptisms in Greece
A few years ago I went to a Greek Orthodox baptism outside of Athens (I don't remember the exact place). Are you planing a christening for your family? Are you from Greece, if so which region? Please give us a bit more information about the details and we are happy to give you some recommendations. Thanks!!
I have heard of people doing this but haven't had personal experience. There are a lot of churches in Greece but not all of them have active parishes with a designated priest because I believe there is a clergy shortage. So, this would be impossible to plan without knowing more details.
I thought I'd ask a more of a provocative question on this forum. I'm absolutely in love with Greece, and I truly think that every single place in the country is beautiful. But of course, some things aren't for everyone. Which makes me ask the question, what place in Greece do you regret travelling to? I can't wait to see some of these answers and debate in the threads!!
This is just something to be aware of when traveling to Greece and this may surprise you if youre not from Europe. Some beaches in Greece are nude, and when visiting a non-nude beach, you might see some women topless. This is not as popular is it used to be in Greece. I have noticed less and less women going topless but it still happens. It is not considered rude in Greece to do, especially in front of small children. If you don't feel comfortable, just politely move away or go to another beach!
