Through the central message “Sense the Authentic”, we are building a campaign that invites visitors to discover everything that composes the unique tourism experience of Crete. It encourages visitors to feel, to experience with all their senses the hospitality, as offered by the locals and the tourism professionals, expressed through the passion and love for their work, but also through their deeply rooted moral obligation to offer the “best” and, most importantly, the “authentic”. With more than 1,000 kilometers of coastline, rich history, aromas and flavors that fascinate, Crete, the birthplace of Europe’s oldest civilization, welcomes its visitors with optimism and continues to offer, especially in this unprecedented time, authentic relations with the visitors, based on mutual responsibility.

Daily Mail praises Athens for its architecture, academia and history and characterizes the Greek capital as the grandest open-air university in the world.
In an article by David Constable, the popular English newspaper underlines that the city is steeped in history with ancient ruins to explore at every turn, lists the Acropolis and the Arch of Hadrian among the must-visit sites, calls it home to an impressive dynasty of athletes and describes the Athenian visit experience as follows:
“Walking the cobblestone pathway of Europe’s largest archaeological park in Athensis a rewarding history lesson in the world’s grandest open-air university.
There are no fees. No professors. No homework. You don’t even have to attend everyday, just as and when there’s an itch of intrigue.
Like Rome, Athens surrounds you with the ancient: the Acropolis, the Theatre of Dionysus, Herodes Atticus, Arch of Hadrian and the Athenian Trilogy. It’s the crumbling Meccano kit of empires built and empires destroyed.
No other country can boast such a dynasty of athletes, Titans and Gigantes. And it’s the Greek history and landscapes, even more than empirical brick-and-mortar that jointly built the modern Greece we know today.
Here is a country rooted in our consciousness, whether we’ve visited it or not. The names of ancient Gods and Goddesses are taught to us at an early age, and the epistemology of their philosophers still widely referenced in society today.”

VR exhibit at The National Gallery of Prague allows the blind to ‘see’ art thanks to special gloves.
“For centuries, art has been a universal medium of expression that has, and continues to, connect language, time and culture. Art however, in its various forms, materials and interpretations, is still not accessible to everyone. Out of 7.595.145.000 people living, over 36.000.000 are blind from birth and 217.000.000 have moderate to severe vision impairment. And in today’s information age, the only way the blind can experience art, is through the senses of tactility and sound.
Whilst the internet does provide descriptive audio, only some iconic masterpieces are presented in such a manner, and in just a few museums, globally. Thus, millions of people have literally not seen, and will never see, sculptural masterpieces such as the head of Nefertiti, the beauty of the Venus de Milo or Michelangelo’s David, to name just a few – until now.
