Colourful Kos

Favorite thing: Our visit to the dodecanese in May was greeted with a riot of colour - I wondered if it would be as green and as colourful later in the year or indeed at the end of the season. Anyway we were glad to see such a colourful bloom as this.

Cats of Kos

Favorite thing: Cat lovers will be delighted to sze cats everywhere - they looked to be a bit more healthier than those we saw on Rhodes or Symi. Thes greek islands all seem to have cat rescue charities and regularly go around feeding them - judging by the pregnant ones we saw there doesn't appear to be much of a neutering programme around! More kitties in the travelogue below!

Hospital

Fondest memory: So many architectural delights can be seen in Kos - great for those close up shots. Working in a hospital I was interested to see that even the local hospital is an interestingly designed building!

Covered Market

Favorite thing: Just off the square near the museum is the covered market - we walked through its arcades and the smells of the herbs and spices filled our nostrils and the sight of the colourful fruit was very apealing.

Tourist Police Office and Town Hall

Favorite thing: The huge white building of the tourist police office and town hall is just on the corner of the road as you enter Kos from around the castle walls. A really grand building and is readily visible as you approach Kos from the sea - as in intro pic. It was built in Venetian style by the italians during the occupation.

Architecture II

Favorite thing: Evidence of the Turkisk heritage is not hard to spot in Kos - like this example of windows in the old turkisk bath house.

Architecture I

Favorite thing: I just love looking at the architectural details of buildings and Kos does not disappoint in this respect! This is just a portion of the tourist police station.

avenue of palms

Kos

Favorite thing: We only enjoyed a day trip here and even that was not quite enough for the town sights, I guess this is yet another place we could return to and explore more of the town and also the surrounding villages and beaches of the whole island. The whole mix of town and harbour with archaelogical sights on its doorstep is just my kind of place.

Shady Squares

Favorite thing: There are several delightful squares where you can rest up and have a drink in one of the many cafes under the shade of the trees - the colour of some of the foliage was really colourful.

Tourist Office

Favorite thing: This is the tourist office in Kos- situated near the Agora in town and close to where the blue tourist train has its terminus. They have town maps and useful information readily availbale on stands in several languages just inside the door, so just pick one up when you get here (unless a VT friend has already done this for you ;-0 )and then decide what to see and where to find it.
