by Charlotte Flach
Cox & Kings is promoting tours to destinations that are celebrating a milestone this year.
A few examples are:
Two-and-a-half centuries of Turkish Delight - Classical Turkey: Take the Splendours of Andalucía small-group tour and discover one of Spain’s most scenic regions, filled with historic and cultural significance.
Fifty five years since Albania’s Llogora National Park-Albania - The Land of the Eagle: To help protect the flora and fauna, the Albanian government declared this some 2500 acres a national park in 1966 and the area has since flourished.
Eight five years since the death of Federico Garcia Lorca- Splendours of Andalucía: Spain recently paid tribute to Federico Garcia Lorca, considered one of the greatest Spanish poets of all time, 85 years after his death. On the 50th anniversary in 1986, the Spanish government commissioned a monument on the site of his murder in Granada.
Thirty years of Georgia’s restoration of independence- Spotlight on Georgia: Last year Georgia celebrated the 30th anniversary of the restoration of independence from the Soviet Union. Having been re-invaded by Russia’s Bolshevik Army and absorbed once again into the Soviet Union in 1921, the 1991 restoration was widely welcomed.
Vilnius turns 700- Journey Through the Baltic States: In 2023, Lithuania will celebrate 700 years of its capital. The historic milestone, included in UNESCO’s 67 most noteworthy anniversaries of 2022-2023, will be marked by many events and surprises for city residents and visitors.
