Attica zoological park

The Attica Zoological Park, a self-funded creation, extends to a total area of 20 hectares, hosting more than 2000 animals from 350 different species. Its founders are Mr. Jean-Jacques Lesueur and Mr. Rodolfo Rallis.
It opened in May 2000, initially as a Bird Park, hosting the 3rd largest bird collection in the world (1100 birds from 300 different species), farm animals for the younger visitors and 3 very impressive walk-in aviaries – miniatures of the 3 continents – in which visitors can walk and admire the relevant bird fauna and flora.

RAFINA BEACH

It is situated next to the Rafina harbor and in front of the municipal parking of the city. It’s a long and wide sandy beach, well protected from the bad weather conditions. Due to the fact that it’s easily accessible it is especially popular to families and local people.

RAFINA: THE HARBOR OF CYCLADES

Rafina, a coastal city of Eastern Attica, an oasis of breath and freshness, possesses a harbor exclusively for touristic itineraries and a small number of professional fishing boats which provide the market with fresh fish. It’s a modern city which charms travelers and visitors who enjoy relaxation and entertainment in an environment of natural beauty which is generously offered by Rafina and the surrounding area.

Rafina was one of the 100 Municipalities of Athens defined by Cleisthenes, under the name “Arafin”. The city was named after the first ruler, Arafinas, who was one of the 100 heroes of Attica. Excavations in the area also have shown Roman period evidence (buildings, a roman bath, statues).
