Yesterday was a holiday here in Greece. Forty days before Easter. This day nobody works and if the weather is good we go for excursion to the nature and we play with kites. We don 't eat meat, oil, dairy products. Just lenten stuff.
   The weather yesterday was cold but sunny. I took my car and my fiance and we went to Kerkini lake. What is that and where is that? I will tell you right away. Kerkini is the biggest artificial lake in Greece and in whole Europe. It 's located in the prefecture of Serres and it 's 35km away from the city. It was created in 1932 and it has very rare bird, animal and plant species. It 's surrounded by beautiful villages and spectacular mountains and  it 's touristic area. There are a lot of hotels. Thank God they respect the environment.
   There are many activities for visitors there. Horse riding, birds watching, boating, mountain bike, fishing, enduro, off-road driving, hiking into the forest through some specific paths and many more. There is a birds and plants center where a visitor can see interesting things.
   The hotels' prices are really cheap. €50 is the lowest you can find. There are plenty of restaurants and coffee houses where you can enjoy your food, your drink or you coffee and the most of them are traditional decorated.
   I put some photos which i got yesterday. I hope you will like them. Click on them to enlarge them.
