The Greek Island of Rhodes has long been among the most popular holiday destinations. It offers beautiful beaches, sea, mountains, and historical monuments. Since it belongs to the sunniest places in the world, it earned the name Sunny Island. You can spend a peaceful holiday by the sea on the beach, try water sports, but also head for adventure. Thanks to its historical monuments, the capital of the island with the same name is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Flights from Bratislava

Bratislava airport also has a connection to the Greek island of Rhodes, to the international Rhodes Airport. This connection is provided by Smartwings from June 2024 and the flight takes approximately 3 and a half hours.

Transportation from the airport

From the airport, you can reach various areas on the island thanks to bus transport. Buses leave regularly every 30 to 60 minutes and the journey takes about 25 minutes depending on where exactly you are going. Before getting on the bus, however, check carefully where the bus is going, because they are not numbered, but have a table outside the window.

If you have reserved accommodation, most hotels and resorts will offer you a transfer, which is more convenient, and you have transportation directly to the hotel. And if you would like to explore the island a little, which is certainly offered here, it is a great choice to rent a car right at the beginning and you don't have to worry about transportation.

What not to miss on Rhodes

What you must visit and explore on the island is the capital city of Rhodes, which offers several interesting places. The most striking feature of the city is the city walls that surround the old town. The city is home to the Grand Master's Palace, the Acropolis, Suleiman's Mosque, Street of The Knights and much more. Walk through the historic stone streets and soak up the atmosphere of the city. It is also worth mentioning that the harbour once housed the Colossus of Rhodes - a tall statue of the god Helios, which is one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

In addition to the capital, you can visit the Valley of the Butterflies on the island, for example. It is a nature reserve where you can enjoy a pleasant walk, see waterfalls, and reach the monastery on the hill.

Another interesting place on the island is the Acropolis and the old mountain village of Lindos. After a short hike, you can see the remains of the Athana Lindia temple or the remains of Doric columns.

The island certainly has something to offer everyone. You can relax on the beach but also go out and explore the island. After a day spent in the sun, don't forget to replenish your energy, and try something from traditional Greek cuisine.
