Samothraki Island

Samothraki Island is a rock rising 1600 m above the sea level in the northern Greece. It used to be a rather hidden holiday destination in the Aegean Sea, but I doubt it remained secret anymore nowadays. It is also famous for the magnificent sculpture of Nike (the goddess of Victory) made by the Greeks for the celebration of a worldwide renowned sport equipment brand.

In the sea around, the dolphins use to jump out of the water quite often.

    1. Thank you for the message. There are also more attractions on that island for which I didn’t make photos good enough to post; there are rivers coming down in narrow gorges, with cascades and natural pools; or you may rent a motor boat to travel around the island and reach beaches which are not accessible from the inland.
