"Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August" said the American writer Jenny Han.

And she is right! Summer is the season of romantic mornings, cheerful days and exciting nights. In addition to the hot sand, gentle breeze and turquoise sea, combined with the rhythm of music and dance - everything become more and more beautiful and you can feel your soul free. 

You can enjoy the festivals in Greece this summer: 

17th International Folk Festival "Central Pieria" will be held from 4th to 9th of July in Paralia Katerini, Olympic Riviera. 

18th International Folk Festival "NORTH PIERIA" will be held from 22nd to 27th of August in Aiginio, Makrigialos. 

Festivals are held in the land of the ancient Thracian tribe “Pieres” and the Muses, on the flanks of famous Mount Olympus. The surrounding area is the mythological residence of the ancient Greek pantheon, close to the exquisite coasts of the blue Aegean Sea. The pleasant Mediterranean climate and hospitality of the people is a guarantee for a memorable stay in our municipality. It is an ideal tourist destination, gathers archaeological, cultural and environmental interest.
