Founded in the 6th century, the medieval castle-city of Monemvasia in the south-east of the Peloponnese was one of the most interesting places we visited in Greece. Monemvasia played a key role during the Byzantine Empire as an important port, businesss and political centre. Later the walled city became a part of the Ottoman Empire and since 1828 it belongs to Greece. 
Nowadays Monemvasia has got two parts, both of them are an open-air museum. While the Upper Town is an archaeological site, people still live in the Lower Town. A few cafes, restaurants and shops make the cute stone town quite lively.

Magnificent Meteora, the UNESCO World Heritage Site in central Greece, is a complex of six orthodox monasteries. All of them are accessible and beautiful from outside and inside.

Meteora was the first historical site we visited in Greece and we were absolutely astonished! We could just spend hours observing the amazing rock formations and monasteries sitting on the top of some of them. 
A bit of history: between 50,000 and 5,000 years ago caves in Meteora were formed. Later in the 11th century monks inhabited them and in the 14th century 24 monasteries were built. Nowadays it's possible to visit 6 of them.

Wonderful site and definitely a must see when you travel in Greece!

Gialou beach, an impressive wild beach on the west coast of Lefkada, was the most natural beach we found in Lefkada while exploring the island. Stunning scenery and pure nature! 
We spent a few days (and nights) at Gialou beach and appreciated its wilderness and beauty.

Did you know that Greece is not just all about beaches? Greece has got impressive mountains, valleys and forests too! We took this photo in Lefkada when we were on our way to Agios Petros where a nice lady runs a bakery and sells the most delicious bread we found in Lefkada. Then we drove through Lefkada's inland which turned out to be one of the most scenic drives we've done in Greece so far.

Porto Katsiki beach in Lefkada has been one of the most stunning beaches we have seen on our road trip through Greece so far.
We are curious...what's your favourite Greek island and beach?

Orthodox painted monasteries in Romania's Bukovina truly amazed us! Dated back to the 15th and 16th century, stories from the Bible and history were drawn on the walls outside and inside of the monastery. This photo is a photo of Voronet monastery that we liked the most.

While driving the scenic Transfagarasan Road we saw this cute Coca Cola cabin taking visitors across the valley up to an altitude of 2140 m. The views from there must have been stunning!

One of the best days we've had in Romania so far was the day we drove the Transfagarasan Road in central Romania. It's said to be one of the most scenic roads in Europe and we enjoyed the ride! 
Even our doggie that is travelling with us had fun. :)
What road do you consider the most scenic?
