    Perhaps you have seen photographs of the famed Amalfi Coast, where colorful terraced homes nestled into cliff-side hills climb from the deep blue Mediterranean Sea. These port towns, south of the Sorrentine Peninsula in Italy, were not highly accessible via roads until the past 100 years, when the area first became popular for the upper class. Artists came in the 1960s, looking for utopia.   The artistic vibe remains, along with the upper-class setting, and today the coast is a UNESCO World Heritage site, drawing summertime crowds. Yachts and sailboats moor off the coast of Positano and Amalfi, and cruise lines deposit their crowds. Mopeds and convertibles hug the narrow roads that twist and turn along the cliffs, as tour buses lurch between the towns.   Fresh produce is abundant, which combined with fresh seafood, makes dining along the Amalfi Coast a feast for the senses. Trees bearing olives, lemons, limes, oranges scent the air with a perfume that mixes with the salty sea air. According to the legend, Positano was founded by a group of inhabitants from Paestum who were escaping from the attack of some Saraceni (pirates of the time). The first official information about the town's existence comes from some ancient Roman documents, but some artifacts from the Palaeolithic Era have also been found in Positano. These artifacts testify to a much more ancient origin of the settlement.   At the center of the town you can see the brightly colored 'maiolica' dome of Santa Maria Assunta, the main church of Positano. As well as completing the picturesque view of this Southern Italian town, the church is also a very important part of daily life, for many local inhabitants of Positano. Inside, the church features a collection of intriguing works of art from the XIII, and XVI century that are well worth visiting.   Positano has a very glamorous side to it, because of the famous 'Positano fashion style', this is just one of the many reasons that tourists from all over the world flock to the pathways and boutiques of Positano each summer.   With its beauty, luxurious hotels, bars, restaurants, and shops, Positano is surely a perfect place to Get Married in the Amalfi Coast.

    Hungary is over 1,100 years. We are proud to have eight places considered special enough to be included on the list of exceptional and universally important World Heritage Sites. Hungary is famous for historical Baroque towns with a lot of wonderful sights like Szentendre, Esztergom, Eger, Gyõr, Sopron, Veszprém, the beautiful Lake Balaton and the second largest hot-water lake in the world. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Budapest is considered an important Central European hub for business, culture and tourism. Budapest is called 'Queen of the Danube'. There are plenty of other capital cities built on the banks of a river but such a wide and majestic river, as is the Danube at Budapest, is more of a rarity. Even more exceptional is the perfect contrast between the right and left banks. Buda is built upon hills; the feet of two of them - Castle Hill and Gellért Hill - almost stand in the water. Facing it is Pest. Buda Castle district, Rivers cape from the Citadel and Andrássy Avenue all World Heritage Sites. The most attractive sites: the Parliament, the gorgeous St. Stephen's Basilica, the Dohány street Synagogue, the Opera House, the City Park with the Heroes' Square and Roman amphitheatres, Turkish baths, art-nouveau buildings - in one town! Budapest would appear countless times on any list of superlatives. The Continent's first underground railway was built here. It is the location of Europe's largest synagogue. It is the only capital city in the world where there are more than one hundred hot thermal springs with 12 medicinal baths. There are no other cities of comparable size anywhere where visitors can explore dripstone caves in the middle of the residential districts. Cogwheel railway, funicular, forest railway, horse-and-trap, chair-lift, boat and on Margaret Island family cycle cars - Budapest has them all.

    Located in Southern Europe Greece consists of a mountainous, peninsular mainland jutting out into the sea at the southern end of the Balkans, ending at the Peloponnese peninsula (separated from the mainland by the canal of the Isthmus of Corinth) and strategically located at the crossroads of Europe,Asia, and Africa. Due to its highly indented coastline and numerous islands, Greece has the 11th longest coastline. North: Ormenio village South:Gavdos island East: Strongyli(Kastelorizo, Megisti) island West: Othonoi island Eighty percent of Greece consists of mountains or hills, making the country one of the most mountainous in Europe. Mount Olympus, the mythical abode of the Greek Gods, culminates at Mytikas peak 2,918 metres (9,573 ft), the highest in the country. Western Greece contains a number of lakes and wetlands and is dominated by the Pindus mountain range. The Pindus, a continuation of the Dinaric Alps, reaches a maximum elevation of 2,637 m (8,652 ft) at Mt. Smolikas (the second-highest in Greece) and historically has been a significant barrier to east-west travel. The Pindus range continues through the central Peloponnese, crosses the islands of Kythera and Antikythera and finds its way into southwestern Aegean, in the island of Crete where it eventually ends. The islands of the Aegean are peaks of underwater mountains that once constituted an extension of the mainland. Pindus is characterized by its high, steep peaks, often dissected by numerous canyons and a variety of other karstic landscapes. The spectacular Vikos Gorge, part of the Vikos-Aoos National Park in the Pindus range, is listed by the Guinness book of World Records as the deepest gorge in the world. Another notable formation are the Meteora rock pillars, atop which have been built medieval Greek Orthodox monasteries. Northeastern Greece features another high-altitude mountain range, the Rhodope range, spreading across the region of East Macedonia and Thrace; this area is covered with vast, thick, ancient forests, including the famous Dadia forest in the Evros regional unit, in the far northeast of the country. Extensive plains are primarily located in the regions of Thessaly, Central Macedonia and Thrace. They constitute key economic regions as they are among the few arable places in the country. Rare marine species such as the pinniped seals and the loggerhead sea turtle live in the seas surrounding mainland Greece, while its dense forests are home to the endangered brown bear, the lynx, the roe deer and the wild goat.   Before planning your wedding in Greece we strongly advise you to contact the Greek embassy in your home country or your country's embassy in Greece to obtain up-to-date legal requirements.   Climate The climate of Greece is primarily Mediterranean, featuring mild, wet winters and hot, dry summers. This climate occurs at all coastal locations, including Athens, the Cyclades, the Dodecanese, Crete, the Peloponnese, the Ionian Islands and parts of the Central Continental Greece region. The Pindus mountain range strongly affects the climate of the country, as areas to the west of the range are considerably wetter on average (due to greater exposure to south-westerly systems bringing in moisture) than the areas lying to the east of the range (due to a rain shadow effect). The mountainous areas of Northwestern Greece (parts of Epirus, Central Greece, Thessaly, Western Macedonia) as well as in the mountainous central parts of Peloponnese – including parts of the regional units of Achaea, Arcadia and Laconia – feature an Alpine climate with heavy snowfalls. The inland parts of northern Greece, in Central Macedonia and East Macedonia and Thrace feature a temperate climate with cold, damp winters and hot, dry summers with frequent thunderstorms. Snowfalls occur every year in the mountains and northern areas, and brief snowfalls are not unknown even in low-lying southern areas, such as Athens Cuisine Greek cuisine is characteristic of the healthy Mediterranean diet, which is epitomized by dishes of Crete. Greek cuisine incorporates fresh ingredients into a variety of local dishes such as moussaka, pastitsio, classic Greek salad, fasolada, spanakopita and souvlaki. Some dishes can be traced back to ancient Greece like skordalia (a thick purée of walnuts, almonds, crushed garlic and olive oil), lentilsoup, retsina (white or rosé wine sealed with pine resin) and pasteli (candy bar with sesame seeds baked with honey). Throughout Greece people often enjoy eating from small dishes such as meze with various dips such as tzatziki, grilled octopus and small fish, feta cheese, dolmades (rice, currants and pine kernels wrapped in vine leaves), various pulses, olives and cheese. Olive oil is added to almost every dish. Some sweet desserts include melomakarona, diples and galaktoboureko, and drinks such as ouzo, metaxa and a variety of wines including retsina. Greek cuisine differs widely from different parts of the mainland and from island to island. It uses some flavorings more often than other Mediterranean cuisines: oregano, mint, garlic, onion, dill and bay laurel leaves. Other common herbs and spices include basil, thyme and fennel seed.  wikipedia.org
