Kerkyra (or Corfu) is one of the most famous Greek islands. It is located
in North-Western Greece, very close to the Albanian shore. Corfu is the
biggest of the Ionian islands and its history goes back to Homer. It is
a very big island with many small villages and one very big capital that
its houses still have the Enetial style. They are tall and close to each
other, so very narrow streets cross the old city. The two Enetian castles,
along with the palace, the noumerous churches and Spianada, the largest
square of Europe, complement the beauty of the city. Many beaches of different
style and colour, many touristic resorts and a dense network of narrow
and dangerous country roads through dense olive oil forests constitute
the mosaic of the countryside.

of love" that you can swim from one fiord to another through the solid
