Sometimes, not often, publications receive promotional material that makes the reader sit up and take notice. Over the years Greek Travel Pages has received carloads of various Greek tourism-related brochures and publications from both home and abroad. Last month the publication picked up what it considers Greece’s most stylish, rich and almost perfectly designed and produced tourism publication, which was created by the hotel Grande Bretagne.
Except for being a pleasure to hold, feel and read this publication unfolds information on Athens of the past, present and future. Scanning the pages, the reader can see and read interesting articles on everything and anything on Greece with both short and spicy text. And that includes full articles on some of the capital’s most exciting museums.
Rich and fantastic photo work makes even the many ads a joy to look at.
Articles within the covers of the hotel magazine special include one on Greek floral, one on Evgenia Manolides, the world’s youngest female conductor, composer and “orchestrator,” and these just give some idea of the depth of articles included in the publication.
The hotel itself, of course, is well featured. But again with such class and style that it’s a pleasure to see and read. Hotel articles include exquisite photos and well-written as well as interesting text. Of particular interest is a piece on the GB’s art collection, which makes the hotel a museum in its own rite. And then there’s a one line of text reads: “This is the only hotel which deserves to face the Acropolis because of its beauty and history.”
Other articles of particular interest center on culture, on the history of the Athens festival and, of course, the 2004 Games. Then there’s one on Epirus, complete with fabulous photo work and colors, and one that explores the area of Attica from Sounion to Vravrona. And may readers will be surprised to find how many Greeks have contributed to the world of medicine, math and technology in an article entitled Modern Universal Greeks.
