Mykonos - The Iconic Island - Part I





Hej ljudi,

Sorry sto me nije bilo, leto je i trenutno sam u opstem haosu, doduse, kao i uvek leti... Pa dobro i malo sam ljenja za pisanje, ali ko nije leti, zar ne?  I.... recite mi sta vi radite ovog leta: da li se suncate ili gresite (hmmm... ipak mnogo bolje zvuci na engleskom are you sunning or sinning?:D 

Sta god da radite, nadam se da se dobrooo provodite, jer je leto ovde jos kratko:) ... Za mene je Septembar vec jesen:)

Kada pricamo o letu, ne mozemo a da ne pomenemo Grcku i njena poznata ostrva. Ipak THE ostrvo u Grckoj je Mykonos. Ono je najpoznatije, a zurke su vec usle u legendu. Ovde izlazite na mesta koja su posecivali Jackie O. i Onazis, Marija Kalas, Bridgitte Bardot i mnogi svetski jet setteri od 1950-ih. Celo ostrvo odise nekom cudnom energijom koja vas pokrece i ispunjava i ne dam vam da spavate, doduse pored ovoliko desavanja san vam i nije neophodan, odmoricete se kada dodjete kuci:) 
Mykonos je kosmopolitsko ostrvo, vec u avionu primecujete gomilu interesantnih lica iz svih krajeva sveta koji su se uputili na isto mesto kao i vi. Inace, Mykonos je veoma Fashion oriented tako da je svaki izlazak iz hotela pravi eye popping za nas fashioniste, nikada nisam videla vise toliko lepo sredjenih ljudi na jednom mestu kao tamo...

Danas na Mykonosu mozemo sresti kreatore, manekenke, politicare, biznismene, glumce, muzicare, ali kako je to bilo kroz dekade?


Pa pre 1950-te Mykonos je bio jako siromasno osrtvo gde su ljudi prezivljavaju pecajuci ribu... Iskreno, sada mi je jako tesko da zamislim da je Mykonos ikada bio siromasan...


  • 1960- te Mykonos je postao novo Hot ostrvo na mapi zahvaljujuci Onazisu i Jackie O.  Tada je otvoren i klub Remezzo koji radi i dan danas i gde ste do ove godine mogli da vidite njihove slike
  • 1970-te Dekada kada je ljubav sirila svuda po svetu. Mykonos je bio jedno od najpoznatijih Hippie destinacija
  • 1980-te E to je dekada koja je donela zurke koje su trajale po celu noc i po kojima je Mykonos izgladio svoju reputaciju party ostrva.
  • 1990-te Mykonos je postao popularan medju modnih svetom: kreatorima i manekenkama. Jedan od prvih kreatora koji je posetio ostvo bio je Jean Paul Gaultier, danas mozemo sresti Roberta Cavalli-a, Dean & Deen-a iz DSquareda, Armania, Karolinu Kourkovu, Kate Moss, Cindy Crawford i mnoge druge:) The best part is sto su svi toliko opusteni da u tom moru ljudi tesko da mozes da provalis ko je ko, tak kasnije vidis po paparazzo fotografijama u Hello-u ko je bio na ostvrvu :)
 Mnogi svetski celebritiji su sagradili kuce na Mykonosu kako bi imali stalnu vezu sa ostvrom, po cemu je Mykonos toliko poseban procitajte u mom narednom postu:)

Inace, po Grckoj mitologiji Mykonos je ostrvo gde se odigrala borba Zevsa i Titana, kao i mesto gde je rodjen Apolonov sin Mykos. Upravo zbog toga sam pricala sa drugaricama ko bi danas bio moderan Apolon jedna je rekla Willian Levy, a druga David Gandy... hmmm... ja kazem i jedan i drugi. 

Ko je po vama Apolon danasnjice? :)

Hi guys,

I'm sorry I haven't been around but it crazy around here at the moment:) Oh, and I am a bit lazy, yes I admit that I am, after all it is summer, right? So, my dear readers, what are you doing this summer sunning or sinning LOL:)


When we talk about summer, we all agree that Greek islands are one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Mykonos is THE island, the most popular, the most talked about and THe most ICONIC. Mykonos is on the map of world's jet setters, celebrities and generally people in guest for a good time:)

Mythology:  According to Greek Mythology, Mykonos was the location of the battle of Zeus and the Titans and the island was named by Apollo's grandson Mykons. That fact got me takling with my friends who's modern Apollo? One said William Levy, and the other David Gandy - I say both:D What do you say? who is Modern Apollo?

History:  Mykonos was once one very poor people survived on fishing. untill 1950's tourism become ecomony.
  • In 1960's thanks to Onasis and Jackie O. Mykonos become the hot spot for celebrities and jet setters.

  • In 1970's Love and Freedom was spreading all over world. Mykonos was hot spot for Hippies. 

  • '1980's is the beginning of  all night long parties.
  • In 1990's Mykonos become favorite among designers such as Jean Paul Gauliter, and has that status ever since. 
So, in the middle 60's Mykonos was already the favourite travel destination of celebrities from the international jet set. During the 70's, 80's, 90's Mykonos became fashionable for every artist, politician or businessman of that time. Important personalities like Aristoteles Onasis, Maria Kallas, Tzaki Kennedy - Onasi, Brigit Bardo, Zan Moro and Grace Kelly are some of the celebrities that visited this Aegean island in regular bases.

Mykonos is no longer a fashionable place, but a stable value. Many Greek celebrities have chosen to build their rural houses in the island in order to make strong connections with Mykonos.

But what, really makes Mykonos so famous? To find out... read my next post:)


Untill then, who is your modern Apollo?
