  • It has countless beautiful places Greece, but unfortunately there is no proper political exploitation and promotion of beauty each place. ETSI and trichonida Lake remains unknown and undeveloped while with proper advertising, cleaning, projects promotion could give too many in the local population which rather ignores the treasure that is next to homes.
