A fire broke out earlier on Monday in the old town of the Ionian island of Lefkada. Six traditional wooden houses have been already burned, local fire-fighting authorities said. A strong team of firefighters is currently in the area battling the blaze while a helicopter is participating in the operation. The area is densely populated and the wooden houses are next to one another.

Greek athlete Anna Korakaki won the first medal for Greece in the Olympic Games in Rio. Korakaki took the bronze medal at the 10m air pistol final and the first for Greece in the Olympic shooting competition since 1920 when the Greek national team won the silver medal in Antwerp.

Greece needs to catch up with slow tourists

Slow tourism, an extension of the slow food movement that began in Italy in the 1980s, invites tourists to explore a destination at a reduced pace while aiming at an environmentally sustainable and locally focused experience. Greece is still considered a laggard in the slow-tourism sector.
