Dracula Bookmarks

Targoviste - between myth and reality


Centuries ago, Vlad Tepes, a Romanian prince, became well known in Europe because of his bloody habit, impaling. For this reason, people called him Vlad the Impaler. One of the favourite cities to express this bloody wish, was Targoviste. That’s why, Vlad the Impaler has been associated with Dracula, and Targoviste as one of Dracula’s house.
How does it look Targoviste nowadays?

A very quiet town, the only army that makes noise is for the celebration of the town.

Αιώνες πριν, γράφουν οι Ρουμάνοι συνεργάτες μας, ένας αιμοσταγής ηγεμόνας της Βλαχίας, ο Βλαντ Τέπες, ήταν διαβόητος στην Ευρώπη για τη συνήθειά του να ανασκολοπίζει τους εχθρούς του. Ένα από τα κάστρα του, το κάστρο του Δράκουλα βρίσκεται στην πόλη μας, Ταργκοβίστε, σήμερα μια ήσυχη επαρχιακή πόλη. Ο μόνος στρατός που παρελαύνει είναι οι κάτοικοι κατά τις τοπικές γιορτές.
A feedback from Medeea Secretariat

"Demeter" is the name of the ship with which Dracula travelled from Romania to England, in a most thrilling story within a story!

Πρόκειται για τη θεά των Ελευσινίων μυστηρίων που δίδαξε την καλλιέργεια του σίτου και έδωσε ελπίδα για τη μεταθανάτια ζωή στους θνητούς!

Talk to me!

European Day of Languages, 26 September
Celebrating linguistic diversity, multilingualism, lifelong language learning
Dear friends from all over the world, we celebrate on Friday, in the European Union, European Day of Languages. On this occasion, we thought that we can transform the blog into a FORUM, a space for dialogue (not only European but also international), which can establish a bridge between cultures and peoples which, in the traditional way, are in affirmation of permanent competition. You are invited, therefore, to post to the topic below your comments and your views on multiculturalism and multilingualism.
Words of wisdom written by Lydia, Maria and Anastasia, 16 during their English class. Many thanks to Ms Dretaki for her help.
In the photo you can see old and new members of our book club who commented on today's post, holding the Library's dictionaries.
Ms Radulescu's invitation set our library on fire today!!
...we don't know which is the angel's language, but today we felt the angels very close to us, because we heard them in so many ways. Thanks again to Helen and Greek team from Elefsina, for the gift they offered us today. A great day.

A visit to the Athens Book Festival

Click on the image to see us visiting the Athens 2008 book Festival beneath the historic site of the Acropolis. We browsed, bought, and suggested books for our school library. Not a bad way to spend a Sunday!

Πατήστε στην εικόνα για να δείτε την επίσκεψή μας στη Γιορτή Βιβλίου κάτω από την Ακρόπολη. Περιηγηθήκαμε, θαυμάσαμε, πήραμε και προτείναμε βιβλία για τη σχολική βιβλιοθήκη. Περάσαμε όμορφα και θέλουμε να ξαναπάμε την άνοιξη.
