    Best mediterranean country?

    to live in and or visit?

    yes I have nothing smarter to do but lets face it, mediterranean has that something special

    it was the center or ancient trade and civilisation

    climate is mild and very good to live, you probably heard of 'mediterranean climate' named after it, which can be found in south africa, california, etc but was named after mediterranean

    mediteranean cousine is considered healthy and nutricious (no, italian pasta and pizzas are not mediteranean cousine)

    people are generally not more lazy then people in colder norhtern parts, but are more 'pleasure oriented' so to speak

    you can swim in M without running into glaciers, etc etc

    Its shores are very different, and are inhabited by different nations and cultures. The north is catholic, the south is muslim, and we even have small orthodox bunch

    so, in your oppinion, what is the best mediterranean country?

    for me, there is no doubt

    Israel is dangerous
    Italy is overrated crime-ridden mafia country
    Greece is the appendix of balkans in every meaning of the word
    France is not really a mediteranean country IMHO
    Spain is cool, but mass tourism distroyed their nature and their beaches suck in general
    Muslim countries are covering their women
    Albania is plain dangerous
    Montenegro is less dangerous, but a bit backward
    Slovenia is a warmonger and workaholic too

    which brings me to - Croatia

    we have the best coast, many islands, unpoluted (no industry), no mass tourism

    we are not as loud as Italians, hairy as the greeks, inacessible as the french (we speak english ) or conservative as the muslims

    I cant find any flaws to the spanish

    we have the best wine, cheese and olives in the mediterranean. and girls

    we are acessible from europe (new highway connecting the coast to be completed in 2004) and we have no terrorism and very little crime

    you have to love this country

    but please vote according to your conscience, feel free to ignore the facts I mentioned

    Well, I can't chose which country is "best".
    But medterenean (from messo geios) means asu know the center of the world and to that I agree fully. :cool"

    I've always admired Israel for its democracy in a mostly totalitarian region and for the things they've accompliced economically and socially, against all odds (to put it lightly).

    I'd like to visit Israel, and also Egypt some day.

    "Palestine" is not a country BTW.

    perhaps for Italians, but when they charge you for sitting in a restaurant they seem a bit inhospitable

    and crime is significant

    There is no country called Palestine. Not yet at least.

    I also admire Israel for many things Winston. But I wouldnt like to live there, too militaristic (although they have to be)

    and 'is palestine a country' is not the point of this poll.

    Also in Croatia you can't wear t-shirts with the word dope on them or you get basted.

    There is a huge crime albanian mafia style and they steal your internal organs.

    You drink something and next thing you know you wake up in a toilet notice a scar in your side and your kidney is missing.

    No thanks.

    No Croatia

    slovenia is empty in the summer they all go to spend it in croatia. I would also go skiing in slovenia (all good to say about the girls there) but I cant afford it

    Especially if you get to host the EC..


    I wish

    I would like to visit Lybia the most from that list myself. However I've already was in Spain, France, Italy, Israel, Palestine, Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus and stepped on the land of Morroco (had connecting flight via Agadir)...

    this is very subtle psychological warfare on your side paiktis

    you know it and I know it and whole world knows it there are few hundred thousands of albanians in Greece, not Croatia

    and that poor brit boy that fell from balcony in Rhodos got sent home without kidneys

    and you train dogs to kill albanians. little girls to be precise

    I didnt want to mention these things but you brought it out first. I dont know why you enjoy reading bad things about Greece (which I didnt write originally)

    I move for paiktis to be restricted from voicing his opinion in threads involving other countries than Greece.

    And possibly a bit of Cyprus now and then.

    Sorry vetlegion but Croatia is a no man's land.

    Personally I'd rather take my chances in Palestine during an Israeli "responce" operation.

    Croatia is a european country and greece is a territory and a country wannabe, part of mideast with horrible corruption and xenophobia complemented nicely with paranoia

    Nah, Greece is OK.

    Croatia on the other hand has just been created and needs some time cooling off and get things in order.

    Some years ago scores were killed during a bloody war for its creation and things still are dictated from this fact.

    Nationalism and corruption/crime are rampant.
    Greece and Italy are baby faces respectively in comparison with your little country.

    Maybe in 50 years

    a greek and you speak about cooling off

    7 years after the war serbian minority is serving in the croatian army like everyone else. they have all the rights they need.

    when greece recognizes the minority rights I ll become the Pope

    or you may just be far-sighted you know.. in 50 years or so albainans are going to be a majority. they wont need minority rights then

    really paiktis you are very funny comparing croatia with greece

    Well, I'm not comparing and certaintly not so as to say who is "a better or worse country".


    I'd just keep my distances from Croatia for quite a few years to come. (make that decades).
