Lakka, Greece

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.
Lakka is one of the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destinations that is located in Europe. The village of Lakka, is situated on Paxos or Paxi, a Greek Island in the Ionian Sea approximately nine miles south of Corfu. Lakka is the second largest village in size on the northern end of Paxos and is flanked by silver green olive groves and cypress trees.
The village is located on a natural, almost circular harbor created by two headlands sheltering the bay from the open sea. The two main beaches, sandy Kanoni and white pebbled Harami, lead to the very clear turquoise sea. A frequent tourism village, yachts are often seen in the bay. Windsurfers, snorklers and swimmers also frequent the bay. The authentic Greek atmosphere of narrow streets and squares is felt in the village of Lakka along side the Venetian influenced olive groves. The open air tavernas offer a wide variety of both Greek and Italian foods.
The shores of Greece's Aegean Sea saw the emergence of the first advanced civilizations in Europe whose impact is inseparable from today's western institutions. Home to the Classical civilization, Greece became a Roman province and in the process transformed Rome itself. Following the emergence of the Greek-speaking Byzantine Empire and 400 years of Ottoman control the modern Greek state evolved after 1821-1830 as an independent Kingdom. Greek culture is attributed with a vast number of contributions to philosophy, astronomy, science, and the arts.

Lakka can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
