MUDANYA – BURSA TURKEY

8-13 September 2024

 

 

History Of Mudanya

History of Mudanya dates back to 7th century BC. The first-ever name of the town was Myrleia and it was founded by Colophons, one of the 12 Ionian city- states. According to scholar Prof. Dr. Bilge Umar, the name “Myrleai” dates back to period before Hellenistic migrations and means “strait/pass of great mother goddess”. According to another study, the name was derived from “Myrlius” a Colophon ruler.

In early 3rd century BC, Myrleia was seized and devastated by Prusias, King of Bithynia and King Philip of Macedon. Philip granted the region to his son-in- law Pnisas, who founded a new city instead of Myrleia and named it “Apameia” after Philip’s daughter Apame. Apameia was the first-ever Roman colony in Anatolia during Roman era. Following the defeat of Mithridates of Pontus, the city remained in turmoil for a while, before being transformed into a military base by Roman Emperor Augustus, whereupon it became a Roman colony under the name of “Colonia Julia Concordia Augusta Apameia”. During the Fourth Crusade, Istanbul was invaded in 1204 and Latin Empire was established. Crusaders took control of Marmara coasts and surroundings of Mudanya. Crusader army, which consisted of French, came to Mudanya and around. For some unknown reason, they named the city “Montaneia”. It is argued that the name is derived from Latin “mons” for “mountain”, and signifies highlands, land of mountains. During the same era, the name had several versions, including “Moutagnac”. Apparently, the modern name of the town is derived from this version.

6th International Dance and Music Festival
Italy – Lido di Jesolo Venice
20 – 23 September 2024

 

Jesolo has the rare quality of being able to blend into a single formula the generous contribution of nature, the perspective of never ending idleness while sunbathing at one of the finest blue flagged beaches in Italy, the amazing sports, shopping and nightlife opportunities and a highly modern tourist infrastructure able to provide comfort and luxury in terms of accommodation and eating venues. A tourist paradise proper, Jesolo has lived and will always live up to its visitors’ expectations. A further feature enhancing the tourist rating of Jesolo is its proximity to Venice, which is a benefit both as to accessibility and as to the opportunity given to visitors to tick off the two major tourist hotspots in an extremely timely and convenient manner.

5th International Cultural Festival “FOLKWAY”

CRETE ISLAND – GREECE

Hersonissos – Heraklion

September 26th – September 30th, 2024

 

Organizers: Open Ways, Culture and Travel Co (FOLKWAY)

                      Greek local Cultural Associations – Municipality of Hersonissos


Crete is the largest island in Greece and the second biggest (after Cyprus) of the East Mediterranean, with an exquisite 1,000-kilometer-long coastline dotted with numerous coves, bays and peninsulas, which afford a multitude of soft, sandy beaches along the beautifully blue Mediterranean Sea. After all, it’s among the finest in the world and has established Crete as one of Europe’s most popular holiday destinations. And, of course, the island’s historic importance in today’s world as the home of the Minoan civilization with important archeological finds at Knossos, Phaistos and Gortys, is evidenced by the tens of thousands of visitors to these sites each year. Hersonissos is located a few kilometers away from the international airport “Nikos Kazantzakis” of Heraklion.  Within its borders there are settlements with unique characteristics and colors.  Hersonissos is known as the most organized tourist destination in Crete. It is also known for its high-quality hotels, conference infrastructures and the natural beauty of its coasts. Mass tourism, beautiful beaches and the rich nightlife only constitute one side of the coin “Hersonissos” and many historical monuments and landscapes of exceptional beauty await to be discovered.

All our previous Festivals in our homeland Greece had a great success as we welcomed groups and representatives of more than ten countries in each Festival. Our 5th International Festival in Crete Island in 2024, is the only one international cultural festival in the area/Municipality, which is officially organized in collaboration with the local authorities and Greek local companies – associations with quality standards and great respect for tradition and culture. We expect that it will have a larger impact and will provide to the participants opportunities to learn about different cultures and people, create new friendships, exchange experiences and contacts with other folk groups. Furthermore, during their stay the participants will have the pleasure to enjoy the Greek hospitality, the crystal blue sea and a bright Greek sun. The weather this period is good and warm suitable for swimming.
