Popular Attractions in Greece

Having accumulated more than 10 years of design experience, Pascal Vohradnik creates designs for both Factory Downtown and C7EVEN in New York. Outside of work, Pascal Vohradnik enjoys traveling and has visited such destinations as Turkey, Spain, and Greece.

Made up of more than 60 islands, Greece offers a wide range of popular attractions for tourists, one of which is the Acropolis and Acropolis Museum in Athens. Home to the Parthenon, one of Greece’s most recognized temples, the Acropolis and its museum offer a unique look at Ancient Greek life and architecture, along with a spectacular nighttime view of the city below.

Another popular attraction in Greece is Santorini, a volcanic island famous for its sunsets. The capital brings together the blue-domed churches and white-washed homes of Cycladic and Venetian architecture. Likened to Pompeii, the city of Akrotiri on Santorini immerses tourists in fantastically preserved ruins. Although it was destroyed by a volcano, Akrotiri’s ornate frescoes, multi-story buildings, and ancient artifacts provide an accurate look at the city’s advanced culture.

Known for its architecture is the city of Mystras, which boasts medieval houses, palaces, and frescoes. Abandoned during the eighteenth century, Mystras takes tourists back to a time when imposing castles and ornate monasteries were a regular sight.

Different Types of Mountain Bikes

Pascal Vohradnik is a New York City designer and real estate investor who is founding partner and co-owner of C7even and Factory Downtown. In his spare time, Pascal Vohradnik enjoys staying active by riding mountain bikes and snowboarding.

When it comes to purchasing a mountain bike, full suspension models come in five basic options. Some individuals might prefer a hard tail, front suspension-only mountain bike. Cross-country mountain bikes are lightweight and balanced in a way to help riders achieve momentum riding up hills. The addition of a rear suspension, however, makes mountain bikes more adept when riding downhill. Trail bikes, on the other hand, have more suspension when compared to cross-country bikes. They are slightly heavier than mountain bikes due to the stable design aimed at leisurely trail rides, rather than grueling mountain trails.

All-mountain bikes fall in between cross-country models and trail bikes. All-mountain bikes are designed for aggressive trail rides that feature significant obstacles, including drops and jumps. Finally, individuals who want to purchase mountain bikes should consider free ride and downhill models, which better absorb downhill hits and speeds, respectively.
