Kerkyra is one of the most popular Greek islands among foreign tourists. Also, it’s history involves lots of foreign influence, as the island was governed by many different nations. All this, makes Kerkyra very “international” place. You can experience it on every corner by meeting foreigners, hearing multiple languages spoken on the streets, but also by observing customs and habits of its inhabitants.
While whole Greece is drinking morning frappe in the summer and traditional Greek coffee in the winter, Kerkyra is choosing cappuccino and espresso! Traditional local alcohols and sweets also have little in common with typical products for Greece, like baklava, pasteli or even ouzo.
Nowhere else in Greece You will find laundry being dried on the strings outside the windows. Strings, no longer than 3m, pulled between two opposite buildings, full of laundry – I like this views :-D
