Mykonos mix 1


Mykonos, the Greek island that belongs to the Cyclades, covers an area of 105.2 km2. It has about 10,000 residents, most of whom live in the main town known as Mykonos, or otherwise called Chora. This island is one of the most visited tourist destinations in the whole world, and every summer it welcomes more than half a million of tourists.
Mykonos is known since the ancient times, but its modern history begins in the 60's when the yachts of the rich shipowners began to arrive on the island. We can freely say that Jackie and Aristotle Onassis were "guilty" for spreading the cosmopolitan energy in this area...

Mikonos, grcko ostrvo koje pripada Kikladskom arhipelagu, zauzima povrsinu od 105.2 km2. Ima oko 10.000 stalnih stanovnika, od kojih vecina zivi u glavnom gradu Mikonosu ili drugacije nazvanom- Hora. Ovo ostrvo je jedna od najposecenijih turistickih destinacija u celom svetu koju u toku leta poseti preko pola miliona turista.
Mikonos je poznat jos od antickog perioda, ali njegova moderna istorija zapocinje 60-tih godina kada su jahte bogatih brodovlasnika pocele da pristizu na ovo ostrvo. Moze se slobodno reci da su Dzeki i Aristotel Onazis "krivi" za sirenje kosmopolitske energije na ovim prostorima...
