Nafplio in pictures…..

NAFPLIO  is a seaport town in the Peloponnese in Greece that has expanded up the hillsides near the north end of the Argolic Gulf.

After the liberation from the Turks, Nafplio became the first capital of the new state. This resulted in the city becoming an integral part of many important events, institutions and historic events.

Many famous people lived in this city. Among of them was Ioannis Kapodistrias. One of the many things that he did was the import of potato cultivation. The strange thing is the way he found to make them acceptable. Initially introduced a load of potatoes and provide them to citizens. But none of them accepted . So he thought another way. He decided to offload potatoes in public place but after that he said to officers to guard that amount.He knew how people were thinking in that time in Greece. Citizens thought that potatoes were something valuable so they stole them. By that way potatoes became a popular dish in greek cuisine. Funny way don’t you think?
Anyway this place is amazing , very beautiful and you can have both quiet or intense vacations there. But that’s enough from me …Let me show you…,
