Temple of Apollo, Aegina

Cds IMG 2948

This temple is the first of the many ancient Greek ruins I have visited. It is one of the many temples dedicated to Apollo in Greece. There is not much left of the temple; only a single standing column is remaining. The temple is a short walk from Aegina Town, and it has a lovely little museum attached to the site. It was a peaceful temple to visit; there were only 2 other people visiting it; so you have plenty of time to wonder around the site in piece, and chat to the friendly staff working in the museum.

A very different experience from the noisy and crowed (yet magnificent) Acropolis.

Kaplica Gasieniców

This little stone chapel is in the middle of Zakopane. IT’s called Kaplica Gasieniców. It was the first sacred building in Zakopane; it was build around 1800.

Legend has it that the funds raised to build the church come from the booty of robbers atoning for their sins!
