On our planet, every 90 seconds one person drowns.

Paradise near Nei Pori

Every summer, a large number of Serbian tourists ride on vacation across the beautiful Greek beaches and mostly finish their journey in the northern part of Greece which is closest to us, some 150 to 200 kilometers from Evzoni, on Chalkidiki or in the Olympic region or on the nearest island, Thassos.
